They definitely have homework, but it is enough to teach responsibility, to have the kids try new things like science projects, book reports, and public speaking. It is definitely a healthy amount of homework.
They teach kids all about integrity and honesty and how it effects not only who they as a student, but also as a person, and as a U.S. citizen. They teach them that they are responsible for their actions. Every month there's a theme, for example: citizenship, responsibility, consequences; they teach the students what the words mean, how to show it by what you say and do and the consequences if you choose to or not to follow.
Level of education, teaching, and learning are accelerated, meaning way above average. They make sure kids are learning everything they need to succeed in school, eventually high school, college, and life. Communication between staff including teachers and principal are amazing. If there are any issues or concerns you are contacted immediately. Even if it's something small like child falling on playground they let you know before having to find out from your child. Compared to public schools Legacy is way above average learning, your child will definitely get a wonderful education.
The curriculum is good. I love Saxon and Spalding. I love the school uniform idea too, but I wish they would not allow jeans. Jeans are too different in styles and colors and I see kids wear "skinny" jeans or jeans with holes and start bully other kids in uniform pants that they are not stylish.
I love this school. My daughter is about to go in to first grade and in the past year has learned all the letter, sounds, and letter groupings and sounds. She has been doing spelling tests and gets 100% on all. She does book reports and recites poems in front of the classroom. She has done excellent. I love her teacher and all the staff.
My son has been going to Legacy for 4 years and it has been a great experience. Though taught at an accelerated level any struggles he has had has been helped with the free tutoring program they have. With this his grades and self confidence has improved greatly.
I love legacy traditional school and I highly recommend it to others! This will be my children's fourth year attending there. I will agree that there is a lot of homework assigned daily but I am in favor of it. It is not the teacher's sole responsibilty to ensure that my children get an education. I like being involved in there learning process. I do have a complaint about classroom sizes and agree that over the last two years they have accepted too many new students into the school. I hope in the future that they take into consideration the size of the parking lot and classroom sizes and do not allow for open enrollment.
