1. Legacy Traditional Schools

Background: Legacy Traditional Schools believes there is no limit to what a student can achieve with a great education and strong character. LTS’ nonprofit network of tuition-free, A-rated public schools was founded on this principle, and it underlies its mission to build lifelong learners and good 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. On the 2017 AzMERIT assessment, LTS students outperformed the state average by double digits among students in every grade and on both English and math.

Surprising fact: “Legacy Traditional School was founded in 2007 with its first campus in Maricopa. In less than 10 years, our proven academic track record positions Legacy as Arizona’s highest-rated K-8 charter school network. We serve 14,600 students across 13 campuses in Arizona and Nevada — Avondale, Casa Grande, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Laveen, Maricopa, North Chandler, North Valley (Nevada) Northwest Tucson, Peoria, Queen Creek and Surprise. We are opening three new campuses for fall 2018 in East Mesa, Phoenix and Henderson, Nevada.”
