My sister-in-law and I moved our kids from public schools to Legacy because of how great they presented themselves. My sons class had 32+ to one teacher. The class room had literally no room for them to walk to the teachers desk! Kids have no time to be kids at home. They have to get homework done, read then study for weekly test on every subject. On top they have to get a school report done every quarter. Don't try talking to the principal she is the worst, she literally told my sister-in-law, "If your son cannot keep up with the curriculum then this was not the school for him, we are a accelerated school, with a waiting list of over 500 kids."
I am thoroughly pleased with the education my son is receiving at LTS- Avondale. These schools offer parents a solid choice in education. Parents have many opportunities be supportive and involved both on campus and at home. This is an accelerated-paced school that truly raises the rigor in each classroom. These teachers are talented in their craft and strive to bring out each individual student's strengths. The work is solid and challenging, but well worth it for the end result.
Be open with your child's teacher if it takes your child longer than one hour to do homework. Teachers are very supportive and always provide helpful tips for homework success! Homework is appropriate and reinforces concepts taught that day.
I had a 2nd grader for the 2012-2013 school year at Legacy. I LOVE this school. When me daughter was in the 1st grade she attended public school in the Glendale School District. She got into a lot of trouble because the curriculum wasn't challenging enough for her, she was to advance. I had no problems with her behavioral last year. Legacy gave her a challenge in every subject. She even said out of her mouth that she had no time at Legacy to be bored. Her teacher was the GREATEST. To me it seem the teachers care alot more about their students. The students are taught math and reading a level above their current grade. I really don't know what else to say but my daughter will attend Legacy for the 2013-2014 school year. I'm very happy I decided to enroll my child in this school.
I was very disappointed in this school. The class sizes are huge, over 30 students to one teacher, with very little supervision. Kids are given so much homework without instruction, students are left on their own to figure it out. They ask for parent involvement, only so they can keep a limited staff and not pay for additional help. With the amount of money they are making with an over crowded school they should have plenty of funds. They are so concerned about adding and paying for new buildings little is left to really address kids needs. They are not aware of no child left behind. If you child requires any special attention they would prefer the child not attend their school. If you child is doing well it is because of the parent teaching not the teacher. And most teachers at this school can not teach at a public school because they don't have the credentials to do so. Just ask.
