Last Friday, State Representative Brian Harrison walked and toured Life School’s Red Oak Elementary campus. He had the honor of meeting a 4th grade class, observing the science fair, and hearing first-hand the dedicated staff and teachers explain why they love working at Life School.
“I appreciate Life School for giving me a great visit and providing a quality education in HD-10,” Harrison said. “I am proud to represent such successful ISDs and public charter schools. It was an honor to meet students and see dedicated teachers and staff in action. I am a firm believer in school choice and look forward to further empowering parents, students and teachers in the next session. »
Life School, a nonprofit network of tuition-free public charter schools in Texas, was founded in 1998 to serve families in South Dallas. Inspired by the vision of Dr. Tom Wilson, Life School opened in Oak Cliff with 15 staff and 266 students. Dr. Wilson’s vision was to provide quality education and to give parents choice in education, regardless of their ability to pay.
Today, Life School operates 10 schools at 7 sites serving over 5,600 students in Carrollton (K-5), Cedar Hill (K-6), Lancaster (K-6), Mountain Creek (K-6), Oak Cliff (K-12), Red Oak (M-6) and Waxahachie (7-12).
