Lifeline Education Charter School is a great high school. Although, the campus is very small the education level is at its highest. My four years of high school were the best! The teachers are amazing and the staff does an outstanding job. They are all very helpful and caring. However, they should definitely invest in a bigger campus and offer to join sports.The only downfall of Lifeline is that they do not have sports to join.

This school is a really good school. It has been around for a while now. This school has given many the chance to see who they really are and a chance to find yourself all while not loosing focus on your study and applying yourself to give your best performance. It gives you many options to motivate yourself to participate in good programs and helps you with your work if you are ever stuck on anything. It has amazing teachers and staff. That are willing to listen to anything you ever have to say which is not the best part alone. The teachers and staff at Lifeline Education Charter School can all together make the environment better. If there were something that i would like to see improve is the amount of space we have the building we are located at, at times it can get really crowded. I love the idea of having everyone socialize but not the idea of getting everyone in one space and not being able to breathe. There is not a lot of things that the school can improve its at its best.
I have been at Lifeline since 7th grade and I love many of the teachers here but I will admit that some of the staff should be replaced immediately. There is also a lack of opportunity when it comes to classes, programs, and extracurricular activities. The building itself is very small and not the most practical for a high school. I am soon to be a senior at Lifeline and frankly, I don’t feel that I had a true high school experience. Then again, I suppose I should not blame the school for having a lack of funding. I hope to see my school improve in all aspects for future students.
