Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School (PBLCS) is a public, K–8 charter school located on the southeast side of Pine Bluff. We are a college-prep focused school, with the steadfast goal to prepare students for college. Our current enrollment is approximately 270 students, of which 96% are students of color.
Since opening our doors in 2011, PBLCS has grown and evolved from a K-4 campus to a K-8 campus and extended our reach and programs to meet and serve the needs of our community.
We subscribe to a restorative approach to develop the whole child. We accomplish this by leveraging relationships and helping our students develop the social skills necessary to ensure they are prepared to solve problems, work collaboratively, and persevere in the world.
We focus on developing social-emotional skills in addition to academic development. Each day begins and ends with classed focusing on relationship building.
The mission of Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School is to prepare students with the academic and social-emotional skills necessary to succeed in college, career, and life.
