My daughter attending this school for 6 years. The education was great for elementary school but once she went up to middle school I feel that they did not have her as advanced as they say they are. Once we switched her out and had her tested into another school she was very behind and had no idea as to what the other school was going over. Also, many other students have been very behind even switching into public schools. The school requires a lot of money and I feel for that much money they should have more sports and be letting the students attain the best of their abilities when it comes to education. I would definitely not recommend this school to anyone.

This school has a wonderful music and fine arts program! The teachers are strict, sometimes a little overkill. Wish that sometimes they would allow these children to "Be children" and not expect them to be adults. Some expectations are truly not possible of such young children. The principal is young as mentioned in previous comments. I feel there is alot of room for improvement on her end as far as listening to her students and concerns from the parents. She tends to side in favor over her staff vs. concerns that parents/students bring to her and doesnt really take much action in getting concerns corrected. Curriculum is great, both my children love the chapel as it is very interactive.

I think the school overall is good. The teachers do their best to make sure students are learning and they reall do care about each student individually. They offer tutoring and extra attention if the student needs it. The principal is young with no real experience on leadership. She overlooks real issues unless they are money related that benefit the school. I think it is important to be able to successfully run your household before attempting to run an entire school. Maybe time to pass the torch. Other than lack of leadership by the leader, the curriculum is great. They use Bob Jones and A Bekka both of which are higher than public school standards.

I love this school! The caring environment that the teachers have stage for this student has allowed my boys to mature spiritually as well as academically. I love that they"re very strict on their no bulling policy and keep the students accountable for their unacceptable behavior. Respect for everyone is on top of their list, which all students are taught to abide by therefore, making it a wonderful experience for everyone. This school has set the mark of excellence for academics and well behaved students. Looking for a school that will compare to this one will be hard.

Legacy Academy is amazing. The teachers go one on one with you, and really want to see you succeed. The music program is amazing! There are so many fun days, but the students still are focused on their work. The classrooms are filled with 15 students max, and the teachers actually care about you and your work. The academics are great, and they are advanced for the grade that the student is in. The principal is amazing and everything wouldn't be pulled together without her excellent leadership. The Holy Spirit really runs through the whole school system. The students themselves run the chapels, and prayer is stretched out to everyone who needs it. I would recommend this school for anyone and everyone. The only thing wrong with it, is that it doesn't have a high school!
