Elementary School Points of Pride

  • Legacy is the largest Title 1 school in the largest school district in South Carolina
  • Enrollment has grown from under 500 students to almost 1,300 over the last 4 years. Currently grades K5-8 have a waiting list for admission.
  • Legacy believes in the educational value of experiential learning. Our curriculum is supported by a robust schedule for our students who might not otherwise have such life enriching opportunities. We provide over 12,000 individual experiential learning experiences each year, such as trips to Williamsburg, VA, Washington, D.C., the Atlanta aquarium, Columbia's EdVenture, Hilton Head, local farms and businesses, college campus tours, concerts, theatres, museums, libraries and outdoor adventures.
  • LCS is the only organization in Greenville to earn an award from LiveWell Greenville in the healthy out-of-school, healthy school and healthy workplace categories. 
  • 100% of students receive free healthy meals. We are the only school in Greenville County School District to offer a free supper program (provided by DSS). During the summer months, Legacy is designated as a community seamless summer feeding facility for the community.
  • 100% of students take physical education every day.
  • Legacy provides an extended day learning program until 6pm. Legacy recognizes the importance of a free extended day program for accelerated academics, fitness activities, and enrichment opportunities. Students also receive a healthy supper. Over 500 students participate in this program.
  • Legacy believes all children need social and relationship skills to succeed in school and in life. Legacy incorporates the Project CLASS Program, a curriculum-based social skills program that teaches the most effective ways to instill these skills so children will not only learn them, but will also use them. The power of the Project CLASS Program comes from all teachers and staff on the campus working together, with consistent language to teach and encourage student use of foundational social skills. The program has a positive, lasting impact on all students, all teachers, and the culture of the entire school.
  • Our summer reading instruction supports student literacy retention and growth. 98% of students who participated in the six-week summer reading camp maintained or exceeded their beginning reading levels from June’s pretests.
