Lighthouse School Reviews

This place gave me nightmares!

Reviewed on

I did not attend this school, but I did take a tour of it when I was looking for another school to go to! There was something odd about it when I walked in. Then they took me on a tour without my mom present, which scared the hell out of my mom. The things I saw here were comparable to a youth detention center. Every 5 minutes, alarms would go off and some scary looking men would run down the halls and into some room to restrain a student. You had to stand against the walls of the corridors or you would be trampled. When they ran past you it felt like you were alongside a racetrack. I saw an old friend there during the tour and they put me in a room so I could see him, but instead I heard another kid get restrained & verbally abused in the next room. "Stop it! You are acting like a 2-year-old!" he yelled at him. Meanwhile my mom was on a separate tour and sees what I saw and demanded to see her son. The staff were very condescending and saying he was perfectly safe. She said "No! I want to see my son, now!" There were padded walls and security cameras in every room - 1 pointed in the room and 1 pointed out the window - which was unusual at the time. But this place gave me the creeps and gave me nightmares. I saw more red flags at this place & this was just a tour. To parents and potential students, you might want to bypass this one. Prison is a better place to learn!
