Legacy Charter School is a public charter school educating approximately 500 scholars in pre-k through 8th gr. in Chicago's North Lawndale neighborhood. Legacy is an outstanding center for teaching and learning for children and their families that recognizes and nurtures the full potential of every child, provides a foundation for a college education, and educates its scholars to be creative and critical thinkers and responsible citizens in school, at home, and in the broader community.
Legacy prepares its scholars for success in college and beyond, helping them build a robust academic intellectual foundation from which to grow. Beginning with full-day pre-k, and consistently through 8th gr. Legacy's curriculum emphasizes literacy, and sets the stage for sustainable academic achievement by its scholars. Our curriculum and culture emphasize both academic achievement and social-emotional growth.
Legacy's curriculum educates the whole child. All scholars participate weekly in art, music, and physical education. Team sports and after school clubs are available to scholars. The entire school community regularly gathers for Legacy Circle where we celebrate honors and accomplishments.
