About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Lifeline Education Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Lifeline Education Charter School Reviews
Best school in Compton
All three of my children attend Lifeline now and one graduated two years ago. She in now enrolled at Long Beach State. Had it not been for Lifeline my kids would have to attend Compton Unified schools and Compton Unified does not provide a quality education. At lifeline we are a family and the principal is always available. I know she is credentialed, please get your facts straight. They are Wasc accredited. My family loves Lifeline!
Great Changes at Lifeline
The school is making monumental changes regarding classroom education and student success/learning. The school was recently granted accreditation! So...kudos for Lifeline Ed. I will continue to enroll my daughter at this campus, as it is the only reputable school in the area. Very family oriented as well.
The school is not WASC accredited. Some classes/credits will not transfer.
78 percent of Lifeline's graduating seniors go on to college or a 4 year university. School is what students make of it. Everyone should try harder, including our students. I have two questions for the parents. Do you take responsibility for every thing your child does? Do your children do everything you tell them?
Teachers are strangers. Children are taught not to socialize with strangers. Then these strangers have students doing things that may be challenging and time consuming.
Empower teachers and support teachers. Join the Parent and Teachers association, or Parent, Teachers, and Students association for those progressive communities. Go to parent meetings and open houses.
This is the worst school: Behavior Issues, Not credential Admins, Teachers not teaching students to their strenghts/weaknesses, Definitely not preparing students for college, career, and vocational. Do not send your student here, not a real school.
