Therefore, teachers at Legacy School strive to provide hands-on learning experiences that not only give students the ability to work together with others but challenge them to learn more.

Our son attended kindergarten at Legacy. One of the best choices we`ve made. His teacher went above and beyond. The staff is amazing. We love how they do so much of their learning outdoors and that he really got the one on one that he needed. To me it was worth every single penny.

Legacy is simply amazing. We are so blessed to have had the experience. There`s no other school that even comes close to what Legacy has in a school campus, teachers, and instruction.

Our son just finished his second year at Legacy and we couldn`t be more impressed. The care each teacher and faculty has for him is something special, we love how even as a kindergartener everyone knows his name and makes him feel welcome. The outdoor play and education Legacy offers are also unmatched. He has grown SO much in just 2 years at Legacy. We really love this school.

Legacy has been an amazing school for our daughter. Love the small class sizes and that there are two teachers in every classroom to help out. My daughter does 2 days a week preschool currently and asks every day if she gets to go to preschool today and says she wants to be her teacher when she grows up. You can tell the teachers and staff really care about the kids and we love that!

Our daughter does 2 days a week preschool at Legacy and we love it there! She loves school and asks every day if she gets to go to preschool and wants to be her teacher when she grows up. You can tell the staff really care about the kids, which is great. I get it's a private school, but only downside is the cost and uniforms.

This is our second year at Legacy Primary School! My daughter started in the PreK class and is in Kindergarten this year. I am astonished by what she has learned! Not only has she come out of her shell, she is working above grade level. What I love best about the school is they teach my daughter on her level, not in a whole group. I plan on keeping my daughter with Legacy through her elementary years, as they are adding on a grades through 6th grade!
