A District Of Excellence

Life School began in 1998 to serve students and families in southern Dallas. It is through the vision of the Founder, Dr. Tom Wilson, that Life School opened its doors with 15 faculty and staff members serving 266 students at the Oak Cliff campus.
 
Since its inception over a decade ago, Life School has experienced substantial increases in enrollment. Testimonies from parents to friends, neighbors, and co-workers have fueled rapid growth. Today, Life School has grown to six campuses serving several thousand students.
 
Dr. Wilson’s vision was to provide a quality education and give parents an educational choice regardless of a parent’s ability to pay. He envisioned a tuition-free school with the quality of an expensive private school. After enactment of charter school legislation, Dr. Wilson realized that a charter school was the avenue to fulfill this vision. Through the help of friends, educators and other professionals the charter was drafted and approved by the TEA in the spring of 1998, and the doors opened only a few months later in August 1998.

Life School Holds District Elementary Science Fair

(RED OAK, TX) February 9, 2018 – Life School, a leading North Texas charter school serving over 5,600 students, held its third annual District Elementary Science Fair at its Red Oak campus on February 9th. Fifty-seven students in grades 3-6 from five of Life School’s campuses competed, with awards going to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place at each grade level. Each student in these grade levels at Life School’s five campuses was able to present a science project of their choosing based on pre-defined criteria, while allowing them to use their own creativity to develop their individualized project as part of this hands-on learning experience. “The goal of our Annual District Science Fair is to provide students with an authentic experience that will enable them to think critically while building upon their own problem-solving and communication skills,” said Melissa Brown, Life School District Elementary Science Coordinator. This year’s first place winners were: 3rd Grade, Joey Speck (Life School Red Oak); 4th Grade, Mercy Garcia (Life School Mountain Creek); 5th Grade; Annalise Sanchez (Life School Red Oak); 6th Grade, Christian Shedd (Life School Red Oak).
