Life Skills Center of Arizona opened in 2002 as a charter school for students in 9th through 12th grades. The school has on average 500 students enrolled per year. The school works with students that are at risk of not graduating from high school using a traditional curriculum.
The school provides a personal one on one learning environment that is created to fit the abilities of the student so they can learn at their own pace. The staff works to help each student build their resume while learning skills for interviews and even go as far as to provide job opportunity possibilities along with higher education options. The majority of the students are behind on their credit and working toward graduation.
Parents and student alike are happy that the school provides the help at risk students need to succeed. On the other side, the students at Life Skills Center of Arizona participated in the AIMS series of tests that all 10th graders must pass in order to graduate from high school. The percentage of students that passed the exams was quite a bit below the state average. It would be in your best interest as well as the interest of your child to learn about the school before enrolling. Since the scores were so low, it does not seem the school is actually providing a quality education or providing students with the knowledge needed to graduate.
