Lighthouse Gala Shines!
Mayor Libby Schaaf, student speakers and some adorable primary-grade singers helped us celebrate 15 years in style at the beautiful Rotunda Building in downtown Oakland. 380 heroes, who are making a huge difference in Oakland, raised their glasses at our 10th annual gala and pledged their continued support. Now with two schools reaching 950 students, Lighthouse Community Public Schools is poised to make college possible for even more Oakland children.
For over 15 years, Lighthouse Community Public Schools have a beacon for public education where each graduate fulfills the promise of a better, brighter Oakland. Our schools are innovative models for public education that puts each child at the center of their own learning, and our results speak to our success.
