This is a great school with wonderful teachers, and staff. I have two children who go to this school, and they love it. My children are learning, and they don t have to worry about being bullied. It s a school that s not overcrowded with rude teachers and staff. If you re a trouble maker and looking for a school with allot of drama, then this is not a school for you. Its a very welcoming school that I would recommend to anyone in the area.

I graduated, valedictorian, from Legacy High School in 2006 at the age of 16. I now have a good job and am continuing my education. The principal and staff take a special interest in each student. They specialize degree plans for each indiviual's needs, and follow through the support past their graduation date. My teachers and principal, Mike Anderson, helped me find financial aid, apply for scholarships, apply for colleges even gave me gas money when I couldn't make it home from school! They are truly amazing people with good intent and drive to make it all happen. I was in a position where I had to support myself and graduate as soon as possible. They managed a way for me to be able to work and go to school and at the same time graduate as soon as possible and retain the knowledge from my studies. Thank you Legacy.

I've just completed reading the comments about Legacy High School. I can understand and appreciate some of the comments, especially the ones made a few years back. Legacy has come a long way since those days, thanks to the wonderful superintendent which is in place. He has made some wonderful strides in the school. I think you will now see the teachers do stay and there are extra-curricular activities for the students, such as the Health, Science Club, Writing club and boys' basketball. Because the school is small, Legacy can offer alot of the one-on-one many children need to succeed.

Legacy is unconventional. They have no more discipline issues than our local ISD. Like most all schools there are the good and the bad seeds but at least with Legacy's smaller population, the the principal and staff can recognize each student as an individual and not just a number, so that when challenges do arise they can be addressed with a sense of understanding. We have really liked this about Legacy!

Legacy is a wonderful school! It meets the needs of students who are unable to find their way in traditional schools.

The school is very underfunded and little to no understanding on the 'principal's' part.

Legacy is finally making strides towards a successful school. Leadership has picked up and the faculty and staff are staying. It has a way to go yet, but I feel it will get there if more parents get involved with their children's education and betterment.

This could be a great school with the right leadership. But the staff turn over is so great and you get no support from the district office. Why is it that the staff members that truly love the students and try to help them get back on track are no longer at this school? Untill they get a staff that will be aloud to stay from one year to the next there will never be a change. To the students and parent's of legacy remember you have a good school just always try to make it and yourself the best it can be.

There is no principal, no parent involvement in school, no extracurricular activities, you don't receive report cards, they give you false credits then discredit you for the credits you came with. This school is an absolute nightmare and has no business to still run. The students don't get graded papers back and are told that the district must keep them for 3 years. When a parent does contact them, they don't respond back to them with letters or phone calls or even a notice that they received the call, letter, or messages. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, it's horrible and is sure to fail and no one should put their child through this torture.

Very disorganized, unable to maintain records. High staff turnover. The senior high kids want to be there but no help is given.

On the surface this school looks fine, but once you get inside, a whole world of problems exist. They could not hardly be more disorganized. The school is now being forced to move from its current location because of disagreements with the CHURCH who owns the building they are in. I wish now that I had done my homework better before I enrolled my kids. Major mistake!
