Research shows our Miami Lighthouse Academy inclusive model benefits students, teachers, and parents. For the fifth year in a row, researchers at the University of Miami found that the quality of teacher-child interactions in emotional and behavioral support exceeded the national average of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS)*, an industry standard rating scale.
The collaboration began five years ago, with an initial exploration of the development and expansion of the Miami Lighthouse Academy, LLC and the program's influence on children's development.
