Legacy School was founded in 2008 when two teachers, Kelly Pedersen and Buffy Baca, saw the need for an exceptional, private school in Omaha that could present curriculum based on the educational needs of students. The school first opened it's doors to Preschool, Kindergarten and Enrichment students in a leased facility in September 2008.. In August of 2015, Legacy School began construction on their new school building which is located on 11 acres of land at 166th & Ida. Legacy School relocated to the new building following the 2015/2016 school year. Legacy School holds approvals and licensure as an Omaha private school through Nebraska’s Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services.
