PCSD collaborated with Lighthouse Community Public Schools to develop a former seminary site in Oakland, CA. This site, located in the Sobrante Park neighborhood, serves as the permanent home for Lighthouse’s second school, Lodestar. Phase I of this project was completed in 2018 and included the site acquisition and renovation of two existing buildings, creating approximately 575 student seats for grades K-8.
During Phase I of the project, the interior of the buildings was remodeled from dormitory space and university-level classrooms to better suit the educational needs of elementary and middle school students. The renovation created 13 traditional classrooms, eight breakout rooms, two self-directed learning spaces, and studio space for special programming. The updated facility also includes conference rooms, a multi-purpose/lunch room, a teacher’s lounge, teacher workspaces, a nurse’s office, and administrative offices.
