From Our Superintendent

Establishing and maintaining a school culture where students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged has led to exceptional results. I am very pleased to announce that, for the third year in a row, the Arizona Department of Education has issued an “A” label for Legacy Traditional School District based on our students’ academic performance. This is the highest ranking a school district can receive. Additionally, the Arizona Department of Education has officially recognized our district as a top performing school system in the state. Parents confidently enrolled their children in our schools, growing our enrollment to over 8000 students and making Legacy one of the largest K-8 charter school system in the state. With the start of each academic year, we find our organization closer to the realization of our vision to positively impact the education of every student. We truly appreciate this opportunity.

The 2013-2014 academic year will bring even more positive additions to our program. A highlight is our newest campus, Legacy Traditional School – Gilbert, that opened in the fall of 2013. In this new state-of-the-art facility, Legacy will offer our proven back-to-basics program of instruction as well as an Athlos Fitness Track and the new Mozart Performing Arts Track. Another important addition is our accreditation. Legacy Traditional Schools have chosen to seek national school accreditation for our school system with AdvancED, the world’s largest school accreditation organization. The accreditation process is known for its ability to effectively drive student academic performance and continuous improvement in education. Schools accredited through AdvancED are internationally distinguished academic institutions known to provide high-quality educations. The AdvancED school accreditation visit is scheduled for September 2013. The External Review Team will evaluate our system and make a determination to grant Legacy Traditional Schools full and complete accreditation. Our school board, administration, teachers, students and parents have created a Plan for Excellence that consists of measurable objectives to achieve set goals. Our plan includes strategies that allow students to exceed state academic standards while developing a strong work ethic, integrity, leadership, discipline, teamwork and character.

Our mission is to provide motivated students with the opportunity to achieve academic excellence in an accelerated, back-to-basics, safe learning environment taught by caring, knowledgeable and highly effective educators in cooperation with supportive, involved parents.

Thank you for your ongoing confidence and support.

Most sincerely,
Bill Bressler, Superintendent
