Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The very best! A great balance of teachers with lots of experience and some newer teachers with lots of enthusiasm and great new ideas!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Depending on the grade, the amount is appropriately assigned. Having experienced about 15 different teachers in this school, every single one of them has said that "Homework should never cause tears!" and will encourage you to modify, if needed. They will also understand if you have an unusual night, and need to do it the next day.


Develops character: Strongly agree

The school works hard to encourage a positive school environment. The kids feel proud of the work they accomplish.

I have had three boys go through Legacy Elementary School and can not say enough good things about it. Administration, teachers, staff and volunteers. Everyone comes together to make this the best school! We were moving from our original house in Brambleton and I was VERY specific about not looking at any homes outside of what we considered "safe" Legacy boundaries. Can't imagine my boys going anywhere else. We were worried when Mr. Duckworth retired that the school would change, but the transition has been almost seamless. Mr. Dickersheid is equally as wonderful at leading this great group of students and families!

Both of our children went to this school and they both had a great experience. The school is very well managed.

We have two boys in this school and could not be happier with the dedication and support the staff show at every turn. The sense of community is carried through in the school and the principal is approachable and very open to suggestions/recommendations. When the PTO was in danger of not having a president this year he reached out personally to the parents to fill the position. Yes, the school is over-crowded and our oldest has struggled, but his teacher has communicated every step of the way and the support we have received has been outstanding. The staff has come up with creative ways to help both of our children learn and I am particularly impressed with the different levels of teaching material offered based on individual student ability. Brambleton is very fortunate to have such a wonderful school.

I love this school. There is a strong emphasis for parental involvement by volunteering. The principal is ever present throughout the school, not sitting behind the desk all day. He knows the kids and the kids know him. He is highly regarded throughout the county and it shows in his staff. The only downside is that it is currently the largest elementary school in the county with grade overflow every year. But, that is due to the tremendous amount of community growth in the Brambleton area. The school still manages to run efficiently and effectively. I can only say positive things about Legacy ES.

We love this school! Great teachers that seem to love what they do. Our children feel challenged and enjoy going to school each day.

Great school, arguably one of the best principal, nice curteous supporting staff as well. My son had really great teachers all the way till 4th grade; 4th grade teacher is a little new; no correction of papers, etc, put us a little anxious some times to see how good our son is doing. Do not get me wrong, she is equally competent and well qualified, just that less feedback compared to other grades.

We had 2 boys going this school. One of them had a great teacher with a great web-page with links to do the homework. And my son did great in the school. My other son had a bad luck getting several substitute teachers in both years he spend in the school. We had no clue what was going on in his class. No e-mails no Thursday folder coming home with important information from tests etc. His grades went down from his usual A's from previous 3 schools he had gone to. This school is very unsafe. Kids get tired of waiting the second run of school buses and walk home over the four lane Belmont Ridge.
