The teachers show no mercy nor help towards the STUDENTS who stand in need of HELP with their education. Doing the school year if a student stand in need of help the teachers tells the students to FIGURE it out. Leaving a child in a state of Confusion. When you as a parent bring this up to the Principle ...  Read more

The staff at this school are crazy. The staff would not allow me to pick up my five year old son early from school, for a scheduled MRI, because it was against the school policy for students to leave early. My son's MRI was scheduled for 3:15 and the staff would not release him 15 minutes early so he ...  Read more

This term I found that the teacher and Dean of Discipline didn't have a handle on serious discipline issues. For instance, my daughter was being bullied by three girls. I made the teacher aware. It occurred again, and this time my daughter was slapped in the face! The teacher told the girl to apologize ...  Read more

When my kids first inrolled in Life School 13 years ago, I was very impressed with the school. However, over the years, it has fallen into disgrace. They have allowed previously fired teachers and principles to return in academic positions. They have dismissed teachers that cared about the well being ...  Read more

Life School has an excessive tally system. The teachers are not consistent with homework or newsletters. Also, the school's technology and library is outdated. The front desk person is generally rude and the teaching staff lacks diversity.

Its not that the students are rude and disrepectful, we just think ...  Read more

My child is enrolled in Kindergarten. I like his teachers and enjoy the bilingual program that this campus offers. The tallie system is insane and a bit excessive, especially for 5 year olds. I think the school is structured to "weed out" students that don't fit their pre-determined mold. I was NOT ...  Read more

The parents who posted Aug 7 & May 8 are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. The tallies Life gives out will drive you & your child crazy--& for the most ridiculous things! If your child blinks or breathes too hard in PE, he'll get a tally. Plus this place has set times that they wont release YOUR CHILD to YOU! This school ...  Read more

RUN WHILE YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!The Life School Oak Cliff campus is a horrible choice of schools. This campus did not meet its standards academically. Most teachers parent concerned with the students education. More focus is put on behavior. Most behavioral issues are petty ones and should not even be ...  Read more
