The future of innovation in schools rests in strong partnerships with local universities, museums, and foundations. 

Through partnerships, the Lamplighter School has access to the new and inventive thinking initiated in these institutions, inspiring us to strengthen our curriculum and community.  Students and employees at the Lamplighter School benefit from the School’s partnerships in multiple ways. In museums and maker spaces, our students have opportunities for hands-on learning which is emblematic of the Lamplighter experience. In university workshops, our faculty enjoys opportunities for professional renewal through rich dialogue with others in our field. Our partnerships ensure that Lamplighter is offering the very best instructional practices as we instill a love of learning.
