We Produce Results

 

 

From 2012 to 2015, Lift For Life Academy’s End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments have reflected an overall increase in students scoring proficient or advanced, while the number of students scoring below basic has steadily decreased. These results are reflected in the charts at the bottom of this page.

Spring testing marked significant changes in how elementary and middle school students in Missouri are assessed. This year’s test was computer-based for the first time. In addition, tests were based on  Missouri’s new learning standards that were derived from the more rigorous Common Core standards. Lift For Life Academy experienced success in doubling the proficiency rate among seventh grade students from their initial sixth grade year. In addition, LFLA middle school students outperformed the city’s school district in math at two grade levels. Lift For Life Academy also continues to chart success using the Northwest Evaluation Assessment with the vast majority of students meeting or exceeding individualized learning goals based on growth. 

Lift for Life Academy achieved significant successes in 2014. In the recent release of the 2014 APR, the Academy improved its performance score by 30 points, to gain one of the highest charter school scores in St.Louis. This score was achieved through the dedication of LFLA faculty and staff, hard work and successes achieved by students and the support of their families.

IMG_0259Teacher success in engaging students is shown by the 2014 drop-out rate of 1.3%, as compared to the MO statewide rate of 2.7%, and an overall attendance rate of over 90%.  

Student achievements include a graduation rate of 92%, with 88% of graduates being accepted into college, technical schools or the military in 2015.  Over 80% of 2012 graduates who completed technical or two-year college degrees are employed in their area of study.

An education at Lift For Life Academy provides students with what every child deserves – a chance, through education, to succeed as students and citizens in our community.
