Chief Executive Officer
The Organization& Its Results
At Lighthouse Community Public Schools (LCPS), we believe an exceptional education brings out each child’s unique light and potential. Founded in 2002, LCPS operates two high-achieving K-12 public charter schools--Lighthouse and Lodestar (currently K-8)--serving nearly 1,400 students in East Oakland and will continue to increase its impact as we grow a high school on the Lodestar campus.
With a vision of transforming our community by creating a family of exceptional schools serving youth and families in Oakland, our mission is to prepare diverse students for college, a career of their choice, and to be lifelong changemakers. Grounded in our core values of Community,Integrity, Agency, Love, and Social Justice, LCPS is an educational leader in Oakland and beyond, with innovative schools achieving exceptional student outcomes where each child is at the center of their own learning.
LCPS exists to counter persistent educational inequity that threatens our collective future. Oakland black and brown youth currently are not achieving near their potential: only 33% are proficient in ELA and 27% proficient in Math citywide on the 2018 SBAC. Our results testify what is possible when a system is aligned around mission, strategy, and outcomes. 95% of our graduates, almost all of whom are first generation college students, are accepted to four-year colleges. Lighthouse was named the Hart Vision Charter School of the Year in 2013 and Lighthouse Community Charter High School was named the #1 high school for closing the achievement for low-income, Latino students in 2016. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments and we have work to do to ensure they are prepared to persist in higher education and career and to ensure all of our student subgroups are equally successful.
