1. Legacy Traditional Schools

Background: Legacy Traditional Schools (LTS) believes there is no limit to what a student can achieve with a great education and a strong character. Their nonprofit network of tuition-free, A-ranked K-8 schools was founded on this principle, and it underpins their mission to build lifelong learners and engaged citizens. Every Legacy Traditional School features a rigorous, well-rounded curriculum that emphasizes all areas of academic study, including the arts, physical education, extensive athletics and extracurricular activities. In 2018, 11 out of 12 Legacy Traditional Schools received an A rating from the Arizona Department of Education.

Surprising fact: “Legacy Traditional School was founded in 2007 in Maricopa. In just over a decade, we have become one of the highest rated K-8 charter school networks in Arizona. In 2018-2019, we are educating over 18,500 students across 16 campuses in Arizona and Nevada — Avondale, Casa Grande, Cadence (NV), Chandler, East Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, Laveen, Maricopa, North Chandler, North Valley (NV), Northwest Tucson, Peoria, Phoenix, Queen Creek, and Surprise. We are opening a third campus in Southwest Las Vegas in the fall 2019.”
