Legacy Traditional - San Tan Valley

Legacy Traditional Schools, a network of public, tuition-free charter schools in Arizona, Nevada, and Texas officially broke ground at its newest campus in the San Tan Valley.

The ceremony was held during National School Choice Week, which is celebrated every year during the last week of January and highlights the options families have in selecting the right K-12 school for their child. Families are encouraged to apply now for the 2022-23 school year.

The 10-acre, 87,000 square-foot facility designed by Knit Studios, is Legacy's 20th campus in Arizona serving students up to eighth grade. Legacy Traditional School - San Tan opens for the fall 2022-2023 school year at the southwest corner of West Empire Blvd and North Gary Road.

Legacy Traditional School - San Tan is led by longtime Arizona educator and school leader, Principal Jennifer Turney. "Legacy's strong track record of academic achievement and tremendous community support is a true differentiator for our families," said Turney. "We're excited to meet the overwhelming demand for school choice in the San Tan Valley and widen access to Legacy's high-achieving, well-rounded approach to learning."

The Arizona-based school system earns high marks on statewide assessments and consistently outperforms its charter and district school peers. At every Legacy school, students receive a tuition-free, rigorous and well-rounded education that emphasizes all areas of academic study, including the arts, physical education and extensive athletics and extracurricular activities.

In October 2021, Legacy Traditional Schools in Chandler, Gilbert and Maricopa were named in the top 10 in U.S. News Best K-8 Schools Rankings for Arizona charter elementary and middle schools.

The San Tan campus will enroll up to 1,350 students and offer tuition-free Kindergarten through 8th Grade. The campus will also offer Pre-Kindergarten programs aligned with the Arizona Department of Education's Early Learning Standards. The Pre-Kindergarten program is fee-based and children will participate in primary language arts, math, science, music, art, and physical education through hands-on discovery and other age-appropriate activities.

When completed, the campus will consist of 47 classrooms, offices, a gym, athletic fields, a library, a piano lab, indoor basketball court and artificial turf field, a commercial kitchen and a cafeteria. The school will offer:
