Work at Legacy School

If you are seeking a rewarding teaching career, apply now at Legacy School.

Being employed at Legacy in Omaha, NE is different that working at larger public school districts. We are a teacher-centric private school where our teachers have the flexibility to adjust lessons plans to accommodate the students in their classroom. Additionally, teachers and teaching assistants can expect a career rife with these benefits and more when hired:

  • Strong Community Atmosphere: Legacy School has a reputation for fostering a tight-knit community among its faculty, staff, and families. It is not an us-versus-them environment and it shows in the passion of everyone involved.
  • Commitment to Education Excellence: The school is known for its commitment to academic excellence and innovative teaching methods. Our educators are passionate about making a difference in students’ lives. Just look at this classroom’s Project Based Learning experience.
  • Positive Work Environment: People are attracted to Legacy School’s positive work culture, supportive administration, and collaborative team atmosphere. The owners are former teachers who know how to create an environment that encourages teachers to explore their creativity and teach with passion.
  • Smaller Class Sizes: Legacy attempts to cap the student-teacher ratio for every class at 9:1. This allows teachers to provide more personalized attention to each student, cater to individual learning needs, and build stronger relationships with students.
  • Greater Autonomy: Public schools often have strict state or district mandates. Being a private school gives teachers more autonomy to tailor their lessons to best meet the needs of their students. Legacy supports learning-based teaching, instead of a testing-based model. (Even though it is not a focus, we do score well on MAPS testing.)
  • Parental Involvement: Our parents are highly involved in their children’s education, while being extremely supportive of teachers and allow them to do their job. This creates a strong partnerships between teachers and parents, as well as a greater sense of support and appreciation for educators.
  • Job Security: Our teachers often feel more job security in our private school environment compared to the public sector, where budget cuts and other factors can impact employment stability.
