About The Lamplighter School
Lamplighter is dedicated to igniting the potential of each child. Focused on students in Pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade, young children are engaged in the joy of learning through intellectual discovery in a nurturing, inclusive, and collaborative environment. At Lamplighter, the student is central and our faculty is extraordinarily skilled at working side by side to nurture each child’s natural curiosity. Lamplighter offers limitless possibilities for learning, including opportunities to solve real problems, develop STEM skills, and benefit from our outdoor environmental science building, barn, and gardens. Students at the School emerge as risk takers, problem solvers, and confident leaders. Founded in 1953, today’s 12-acre campus has an enrollment of 450 students. Lamplighter delivers serious education wrapped in the wonder of childhood.
