Legacy School Photo #2 - Legacy School believes that a child learns best when they discuss, interact with, and truly engage with every lesson. 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.
Legacy School Photo #3 - Rather than "teaching to the middle," Legacy School fosters an atmosphere where each students' intellect, curiosity, and growth is nurtured on his/her level. Students have an educational advantage while at Legacy School, as they are taught on their level and at their own pace.
Legacy School Photo #4 - Students at Legacy School do not get lost in the crowd, as class sizes are extremely small in comparison to other Omaha private and public schools. Each classroom has a teacher as well as a teacher's assistant and is capped at 18 students. Our small class sizes allow Legacy School teachers to work on each child's academic needs.
Legacy School Photo #5 - Because of the competencies early educators must have to guide development effectively, we require all of our teachers, Preschool-6th Grade, to hold at least a Bachelors Degree in Education with many holding a Masters Degree. With a degree, our teachers have the skill, experience and knowledge to structure learning experiences that guide the development of young children.
Legacy School Photo #6 - Legacy School is situated on 11 acres of land which provides the space for children to explore, discover, and experiment. Playing and learning outside nurtures a child's creativity and their problem-solving skills, as well as, provides the opportunity to develop their imagination and physical capabilities.

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.
Legacy School is an exceptional private school. My son has grown so much attending preschool there. I absolutely love his teachers and the administrators at the school. If you are looking for a great private school, preschool and elementary, you need to visit Legacy School!
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!
