Nantucket Lighthouse School

Founded in 1999, the Nantucket Lighthouse School is an independent day school serving children ages 31⁄2-11. At Lighthouse School, we believe that strengthening the fabric of the community begins here, with each child. Our goal at Lighthouse is to engage the whole child through a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate educational experience. Our class sizes are manageable and intimate.

Our teachers are highly skilled. Our results speak for themselves. Lighthouse School students are eloquent, confident, happy, well-balanced, thriving island children. They are the kind of children who will grow up to be respected and productive members of the community.
