We are a progressive school, unique to education in Cyprus, for children aged 5 to 15 and our programme will soon include a high school.
We enrich the British National Curriculum and the Finnish Education Philosophy with successful educational ideas from all over the world.
Our child-centred teaching incorporates the non-academic skills such as confidence building and social development that our children will also need in their lives.
We promote a holistic approach to education and implement it in project-based, experiential learning so that knowledge is whole, enmeshed in practice, understood and includes learning to know oneself and others.
We foster a passion for learning and help children build personalities that are self-aware, balanced, creative, eager to take initiative and cultivate self-discipline and respect.
An ideal school
Beg, borrow or steal like an artist, but find a way for education to evolve! If evolution, in it’s infinite wisdom, teaches anything, it is…never be satisfied; evolve or perish.
An ideal school should be all things to all people. Hence everyone should be able to shape the kind and quality of educational experience they want. Personalizing educational plans, creating meaningful and relevant curricula and embracing innovative/original ideas in an organic, evolving educational system combine to generate an environment that inspires its members as much as it is open to being inspired.
While we may not always reach our goals in the Lighthouse we believe that failure is nothing more than a dress rehearsal for success.
