ABOUT US

QUALITY CHILDREN EDUCATION

Legacy School is a private school in Omaha offering Preschool through 6th Grade education in a student-centered environment.

The administrators are certified/degreed educators with over 45 years combined teaching experience.  All teachers at Legacy School hold Bachelor or Master Degrees in Education.

Legacy School maintains low student-teacher ratios and places teacher assistants in every classroom to ensure students receive the individual attention they deserve.  Students have an educational advantage while attending Legacy School, as they are taught on their level and at their pace.

With the unique 11 acres of lands for education and fun, Legacy School is proud to offer another choice for your child’s education.

SCHOOL FEATURES

Students at Legacy School do not get lost in the crowd, as class sizes are extremely small in comparison to other Omaha private and public schools.  Our small classes allow Legacy School teachers to work on each child’s specific reading and writing needs.  This allows kids to excel and attain the highest curriculum standards.

Legacy School Science

Legacy School is situated on 11 acres of land which provides the space for children to explore, discover, and experiment. Playing and learning outside nurtures a child’s creativity and their problem-solving skills, as well as provides the opportunity to develop their imagination and physical capabilities.

Outdoor Advantages

  • Soccer Field
  • Baseball Field
  • Science and Nature Center
  • Garden
  • Barnyard with Goats and Chickens

The combination of differentiated instruction, small class size and outdoor space adds an educational advantage, as kids become enthusiastic learners and independent thinkers.
