    "I would continue to rate this school as being slightly better than average. Although it seems to have lost some of it's luster over the years. I'm starting to question the curriculum as the topics seem to be haphazard within the courses. Homework has been unpredictable and tutoring starts to late for struggling students. All in all, still a viable option when compared to the local schools."

    "My question is, if some of the reviews posted here are so fantastic, how come the TEST SCORES posted show how low the students are scoring? I dont agree with the students scoring so low. They barely passed the new STAAR exams. Life School concentrates too much on the students not talking at lunch time, not having their shirts tucked in, not throwing a piece of paper in the trash without getting a tally. There are no field trips, senior trips, community service, no incentives at all, no motivation for the students to want to go to school. The core classes are not challenging enough to keep the students occupied. The extra activities are just a few and poorly organized. Dont waste your time getting your kids here. They will become stressed out without a way to get better."

    "Families and students taking education seriously! We left ROISD 2 years ago to attend Life School Red Oak and have not regretted our decision to do so! They do not have to tolerate poor behaviors from students and I am so grateful for their attentiveness to this. My children have been allowed to enjoy their education with little to no interruptions from the teachers trying to correct other students. My children are excelling here and are honor roll straight A students. I am very satisfied with the coricullum and disipine programs here. If you are serious about good education and raising a child to respect others this is the school for you and your child."

    "This school could be great, if not for the absolutely ridiculous tally system. I am all for standards and rules, but holding a 5 year old to the same standards that a child much older is held to is ridiculous and futile. The school changed my child's teacher 5 weeks in to the year. With the first teacher, the was never more than one tally given in a single week. Since the new teacher has arrived, my child is now facing suspension and withdrawal from the school (keep in mind this is over a 3 week span of time). I do not excuse poor behavior, but I also do not feel that this is the way to help a 5 year old learn that people support them and care about their success. The academics are satisfactory (however somewhat less advanced than what I had anticipated), and the office and teacher have been communicating with me frequently, but none of that really matters when a school chooses to give up on a small child. I am currently looking into other educational avenues for my child and will be pulling him out ASAP. He should not have to tell me that "it doesn't matter how hard I try, my teacher doesn't care.""

    "This school came with high recommendations. We are 6 weeks into my daughter's 1st year there (Kindergarten) and very happy thus far. Parental involvement is a high priority with this school. They don't allow disruptive behavior like regular school districts have to endure, which allows them more time to focus on learning and less time dealing with problems. High test scores show their dedication to education."
