School choice has become increasingly desired by residents across the East and West Valleys and throughout Arizona, and students in both metro Phoenix areas now have a new academic option, thanks to the opening of Legacy Traditional Schools’ new Chandler and Glendale campus locations.
Voted the best charter school system in the state by Ranking Arizona, Legacy Traditional Schools serve students in kindergarten through eighth grade. In addition to high-ranking academics, the A-rated school system offers specialized tracks for students with interests in fitness, performing arts and athletics while emphasizing specific core principles, among them character, a love of one’s country and citizenship.
Getting the schools open on time for the 2016 fall semester was a tall order given that groundbreaking only took place in January, but LGE Design Build stepped up to the task, designing and developing both campus locations simultaneously. Each property has a capacity of about 1,200 K-8 students and boasts a library, a full-size gymnasium, a full-size commercial kitchen and cafeteria and athletic fields and courts intended for baseball, soccer, football and basketball. Classrooms are separated by floors and grade, and the properties also boast separate, age-appropriate playgrounds for different grade levels.
LGE Design Build was proud to partner with Legacy Traditional Schools in giving Arizona students more options as far as academics, and the LGE team hopes to partner with Legacy Traditional on future projects down the road.
