Life Academy left me repeating a classes i had already taken and passed, heavily unprepared for college, as well as unprepared with the college application. Additionally, there was very little attention given to the Class of 2018 and its senior activities. However, most teachers were caring and informative to both students and teachers especially due to the lack of PTA meetings. Though, administration rarely ever listened to the wishes student council or senior committee and meetings were always rescheduled or canceled.

This school is the definition of mediocre. It allows students to pass without any effort and doesn't reward the students who actually try. The principal is deluded and has no clue what is going on or how to actually help students who want to succeed. The lack of communication between the administration and its teachers, as well as the administration and its students is sub-par. If you want your child to pass high school with minimal effort as well as a poor high school experience this is the best school for you.
My first year at life academy high school was completely not what I expected. I thought the work was going to be more rigorous and the students were going to be more mature. However, I come to realize that the school work became easier and most of the students are trouble makers. My suggestion to make life academy a better school is to have the assiant principal/pirincipal/ school staff be more strict. I feel like the school is taken over by the students. There is no discipline whatsoever and that needs to change.
