Fulfilling Our Mission
The Lamplighter Mission Statement
Dedicated to igniting the potential of each child, Lamplighter engages children in the joy of learning through intellectual discovery in a creative, inclusive, and collaborative environment.
Lighting Our Path - A Strategic Plan for Lamplighter
Designed to advance Lamplighter’s most prominent objective, Lighting Our Path was designed to guide the institution in the areas of students, programs, parents and families, faculty and staff, physical plant, marketing and communication, and development and finance over the next five years and beyond. The plan grew out of a strategic planning workshop in 2012, which included Board members, faculty, administrators, parents, alumni, and community leaders.
Energy Star Award
In 2003, Lamplighter received the prestigious Energy Star Award from the Environmental Protection Agency for its innovative improvements to the school's heating and cooling systems. The school has continued to win this award every year since 2003. Although the school is known for its expansive open spaces and extensive use of natural light, these architectural elements created many challenges. Instead of eliminating the vintage 1960's HVAC equipment, Lamplighter updated the system with a new control method that allows Lamplighter to monitor and manage HVAC operations via the internet.
