The Arizona-based school system earns high marks on statewide assessments and consistently outperforms its charter and district school peers. At every Legacy school, students receive a tuition-free, rigorous and well-rounded education that emphasizes all areas of academic study, including the arts, physical education and extensive athletics and extracurricular activities.

In October 2021, Legacy Traditional Schools in Chandler, Gilbert and Maricopa were named in the top 10 in U.S. News Best K-8 Schools Rankings for Arizona charter elementary and middle schools.

“Legacy Traditional Schools have a track record of academic achievement and tremendous community support,” said Nicole Kirkley, chief academic officer and interim superintendent of Legacy Traditional Schools. “We’re excited to meet the overwhelming demand for school choice in the San Tan Valley and widen access to Legacy’s high-achieving, well-rounded approach to learning.”
