  • This school is in a experimental stage were things are not concrete, thats with teachers, principles and admin staff. Things are out of order and the school is ran like a fortune 500 company. so if you know how those are ran, than this is the school. They hire and fire folks there alot. Its not good for your child to be in a system ran like that.

  • Potomac Lighthouse has a good mission and ideals, however the leadership and safety of the school leave much to be desired. Students are not held accountable to the discipline code, and leadership is transient and shifting. This is not a stable school in which to trust the education of your student.
