Sol: “I came to LightHouse because I had a lot of issues in high school and I thought being in this school might be a better environment for me. I found that, with less students, it’s easier to focus on your work. I feel welcomed, it’s like a family.”

“If I were suggesting Lighthouse to someone I would tell them that it’s a no judgement zone, you can actually be yourself.”

“This school makes me want to come to school!
