There is no rating lower than one star, so that's what I gave. Adams 12 has been a disappointment overall. Legacy is not an exception. The lack of professionalism and support for the students is what Legacy is known for in the community. I urge parents to consider other options and not support this institution with your dollars, nor trust them with your child.

High expectations for all students. Good principal..good kids and what's most impressive is the schools band program. That band is one of a kind if not the best i've seen.
