    Life School - Lancaster Elementary Reviews

    1 review
    Of all of the Life Charter Schools, the Lancaster campus is the weakest in terms of student performance. The state has designated the school as improvement required for the second time in three years due to very low test scores and other indicators. Right now, there isn't another public elementary school with such poor performance in the area and only one charter school that fared worse. Life Schools generally have a positive reputation among charter operators, but that will suffer if individual campuses are neglected. Until then, I cannot recommend Life School Lancaster to parents seeking a school with quality academics and a top notch curriculum.
