    Life School - Waxahachie High Reviews

    Life High School Waxahachie is a charter school located in Waxahachie, Texas. The academic program is average, Most of the staff are not qualified to teach some of the subjects they are lecturing. The school is primarily focused on building its sports program instead of distributing its finances equally amongst everything around the school. As a student, my high school experience has been horrible! I would not recommend attending due to its limitations on self-expression and school spirit. I would prefer and recommend a public school for your child if you are considering Life School.

    Life High School Waxahachie is a smaller school. Everyone is close knit and friendly. I've made some forever friends at this school. As a senior I find that Life School has done its job with setting me up for my future college life. I have amazing councealers that guide me through the stresses of being a senior. Though we lack in sports and school spirit we make up for it with our great academics. The teachers really challenge us to be our best. We have public press conference debates, labs and updated technology. Life School also has a great theater program. Our theater kids have made it to nationals winning second place their one act play. I guess you can say I am proud to be a mustang!
    Classrooms are spacious and class ratio is small which makes learning more efficient, teachers are very nice and very helpful. The environment is christian and pleasant. It has its own theater and a big stadium for games, it is a good school and its also fun! I love my High School.
    I would recommend this school most if people has a learning disability because they are very helpful and understanding, they really help a lot and make sure students are comfortable and they are learning at a normal pace.
