    "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 of the children just because they did not "fit" into the strict discipline that they try to enforce. They is a line between discipline and destruction of a child's well being. I am very sad that this school that started out with a great idea has fallen so far."

    "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 Also, the school's technology and library is outdated.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."

    "Life School isnt a good choice for your children. I've been attending Life School for 3 years now. The first year was great, but i started to realize Life School cared about the Tally/Dresscode system more then the students education. Its not that the students are rude and disrepectful, we just think that we are to old to be getting tallies/dresscodes in highschool, and majority of our teachers now are substitutes. The only thing that is keeping me at Life School is the sports, cause Life School is all about sports! -Student of Life School-"

    "My children have attended Life School Oak Cliff for three years now, they are all well mannered and very respectful children. I find that the tally system to be very silly! My youngest child has recieved several tallies for normal childhood behaviors such as skipping! We have to pay for our children to participate in sports, $75 per child! And we do not see where the money is going! Every sporting event we have to drive over an hour to get there while Life School Red Oak plays on their football field! Life School is a school operated by WHITE people getting rich off of our children! The children have to walk outside in the rain and cold to get to class, they even have to walk off campus to the lubias murry building unattended for classes! This school is by far a joke!"

    "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 impressed with the principle. She has cold, uncaring and very rude! I won't say don't send you're child to LSOC but I will say be prepared for the rigidness."
