I'm a former student and a proud alumni. I would consider Lift For Life Academy as a non conventional institution. Every bit of the teaching and activities are catered toward the specific needs of the students. This school is where both excellence is cultivated and an opportunity for a second chance is given. My life is forever changed because of the awesome staff and caring (but tough) leadership. Although, I love Lift for Life because it provides a sense of family & togetherness. I think they could do better in areas of college prepping and improve their grading system. It is very inconsistent and I could never get a straight answer on what the metrics are for grades from any of the instructors. It seems subjective and based on each teachers opinion of progress or performance, not just the numbers. Also, the after school activities are inconsistent. I attempted to partake in multiple things but often times sports and activities were cut short or had poor practice scheduling.

I’ve been attending Lift For Life Academy since I was in the 6th grade and I honestly, couldn’t ask for a better school. It’s a small school so everyone knows everyone. Lift For Life is more than a school to me, it’s also family. I am apart of the graduating class of 2018 and graduating was such a bitter sweet moment because it’s actually time to leave the school. At Lift For Life, we learned, we grew bonds with each other, and made wonderful (some bad) memories, I really will miss Lift For Life.
Transferring from one charter school to another was difficult. The schools were very different. At Lift for Life Academy, I felt welcomed. I was given all the help and extra help needed to prepare me for college. The teachers are well educated and expect the best out of their students. While I attended this awesome high school, I developed into a more mature person.
