    Legacy College Prep is a school that truly cares about its students. The school leaders and teachers are completely focused on student success and getting to know each student as an individual so they can best serve their needs. The college promise is strong at Legacy--all students are prepared for college and this year 99% of seniors were accepted into a 4-year college! For high schoolers in Santa Ana, I couldn't recommend this school more.

    Legacy College Prep is a great charter school choice for Santa Ana and the surrounding Orange County Area. The staff are incredibly invested in the students and their academic progress. Legacy creates a school culture that cares about its students, their family and the community. It is a unique school atmosphere that promotes a love of learning and pushes the boundaries on what a school can do for its students, family and the community. One of the most unique aspects of the school, is the instructors and the relationships that they build with students through the advisory space. Legacy also offers a multitude of extracurricular activities that can interest any student. I also highly recommend their Special Education programming because they offer a rigorous curriculum and hold students to high expectations. It is a unique program following the inclusion co-teach model and the believe that Legacy, any and all students are capable of achieving.
    Legacy College Prep is an incredible free charter high school. They recently moved into their permanent building which is beautiful and has an open feel to it. In their first year of having a graduating class, 99% of their seniors were admitted to 4-year universities. The best part of the school are the amazing teachers and staff they have who truly care about students. They also offer CIF sports and many extracurricular clubs for students. Their focus on academics and developments a students' character is outstanding and differentiates Legacy from other schools. A lot of students who attend Legacy are relatives as families are continuously referring the school to families and friends. Amazing school.
