Life School Athletics Post-Season Success
This spring, many of Life School’s athletics programs are having tremendous post-season success!
Both LHSW Boys and Girls Soccer teams were district champions and went several rounds deep, while LHSOC Girls soccer won their first-ever playoff game.
Both LHSOC and LHSW Track teams were district champions and sent many athletes to post-season meets. This week, LHSW will send 10 athletes to compete in the State Meet.
The LHSW Baseball team won in the first round of playoffs and is facing Anna High School in Area playoffs this weekend. Our LHSOC Girls Softball Team also made it to the playoffs this season.
Congratulations to our goal-oriented athletes at both LHSOC and LHSW!

Life School Graduation
Graduation ceremonies celebrate the pinnacle of a student’s educational career. At Life School, we celebrate this milestone not as a finish line but rather as a launching pad for our students’ future success.
Preparing students to be ready for college, military, or the workforce is a core focus for Life School. In 2023, Life School students will have received 166 industry certifications in the fields of medicine, technology, entreprenuership and eduction. Ten graduates will receive an associates degree in addition to a high school diploma this year.
Congratulations Class of 2023! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
Summer Reading Fun
Creating a culture of reading is a primary focus for our elementary students. Life School is dedicated to ensuring that all students read on grade level by the third grade.
Just because students are out of school for summer doesn’t mean they have to regress in their reading levels. Summer creates lots of opportunities for students to practice reading just for fun!
Click here to view some tips from Scholastic that will help you and your child enjoy the love of reading over the summer!
Campus Security Updates
Our safety and security team has worked diligently to enhance Life School’s safety plan. To date, every campus has partnered with local law enforcement and created an emergency response plan in case of a campus emergency. We are grateful to our local partners for helping to keep Life School staff and students safe!
“Let’s Talk” Safety Reporting
Life School’s “Let’s Talk” feature allows students, staff or parents to report possible safety issues such as threats, bullying or other concerns. To use the feature, visit lifeschools.net and click “Let’s Talk” in the bottom right-hand corner.
Last month, Life School was recognized on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives during the Legislative Session. Celebrating 25 years in operation, Life School received a special resolution read by Representative Brian Harrison for being one of the longest-running charter school operators in the State of Texas.
The Mission of Life School is to develop leaders with life skills through strong academics, character training, and partnerships with parents and the community.
