Life Learning Academy Charter 5

Posted October 13, 2015

Life Learn Life Learning Academy showed up just in time during my eldest Son's Sophomore year. The traditional high school environment wasn't working for him he became disillusioned, discontent, and disengaged from school. THANKS to a supportive administrative staff and its teachers who welcomed my son with open arms that was patient with shoulders to lean on and always an open ear to listen. With that strong support he successfully graduated with over a 3.5 GPA and went on to attend a out of state university and is now doing very well in his adult life. When my youngest son was entering high school, I didn't hesitate. I enrolled him in LLA! He to, is doing amazingly well. I highly recommend to a parent who sees their child struggling in a huge classroom setting and not being successful to check out Life Learning Academy it's well worth it.

I'm just a community member who read today that Life Learning Academy has suspended a student who, in a poem she wrote in a personal journal, expressed empathy with the perpetrator of the recent Connecticut tragedy. I totally disagree with any school that models censorship and punishment as responses to a personal expression. We should instead strive for a community of communication where we teach kids how to deal with their emotions rather than shutting them down out of fear. This is a shameful example of education.

The needs of some students either are not or cannot be met by traditional schools. Life Learning Academy meets these needs. It is a wonderfully nuturing and encouraging environment. The principal and staff at this school really do care and work with the students. It gets an A+ from this parent.

Life Learning Academy is an exceptional school where teachers are driven by committment and vision for their students' futures. You could not buy at any price the exceptional experience that children attain while at Life Learning Academy. LLA student graduate with a committment to their futures that can not be given to them, but rather a future born of their own vision and maturity, a future they own and nuture to the best of their abilities.
