The success of the Legacy Traditional School campus that opened last year in Surprise, Ariz., has prompted the charter network to announce plans for new schools in Chandler and Glendale.

Charter network plans two K-8 campuses in Phoenix area

The new schools would be the 10th and 11th Legacy Traditional School campuses in Arizona

Legacy Traditional School, a network of charter schools with several campuses in central Arizona, has announced plans to build two new sites—one in Chandler and one in Glendale.

Each of the schools is scheduled to open for the 2016-17 school year and will serve 1,200 students from kindergarten through eighth grade, Legacy officials said.

Plans for the two additional campus follow on the heels of the fall 2015 opening of a 1,200-student Legacy campus in Surprise, Ariz., which has more than 1,000 students on an waiting list.

Each of the new campuses will have the same amenities as other Legacy schools: a computer lab; library; full-size gymnasium with wood floor; full-service, commercial kitchen and cafeteria; athletic fields for baseball, soccer and football, plus outdoor basketball courts; and playgrounds separated according to grade level.

“Education fads will come and go, but those of us at Legacy Traditional School believe in a formula that has stood the test of time: supported teachers, involved parents and high standards,” says Aaron Hale, Executive Director of Legacy Traditional School.

When the new schools begin operations, the Legacy network will have 11 campuses.
