About Us

message from the middle school principal

As principal of Legacy Early College Middle School, it is my pleasure to welcome you back to school!

We are looking forward to a year of academic achievement, social-emotional  growth, and exceptional instruction by our teachers and staff. At the middle level, we believe that excellence is not an accident. It is a result of perseverance, passion, high intention, effort and the ability to see obstacles as opportunities. As we welcome all of our scholars back on campus, our focus remains on getting our scholars to and through college. Our promise is to prepare our scholars to be college ready by developing habits of mind and reinforcing the expectation of 80% mastery in all classes.

Our promise is to engage scholars in a rigorous curriculum. Our scholars are engaged in thinking, problem-solving, scholar discourse, and writing every day.  We devote 90 minutes of instruction every day, all year, to Math and ELA preparing them for post-secondary education.

Building a scholarly school-culture is one of the keys to success when there’s so much work to be done. Our team works together  so that each scholar has the best chance for success. Every teacher hired, every new initiative introduced and every change in our facilities were initiated with scholars in mind. 

I am honored to serve as Principal of Legacy Early College Middle School. It is truly a privilege to serve a school family where parents, scholars, and teachers care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. 

Thank you for entrusting your scholar with our team at Legacy Early College Middle School. 
Once again, Welcome Back! Let’s walk towards Excellence, ceaselessly with every element of our being!

With Lion PRIDE,

Idasa M. Cobb

Building an inspiring, scholarly culture is a key to our success. We foster good habits and pay attention to every detail. We work as a team so that every scholar feels a part of our community and has the best chance for success.

College Tracking

LECMS scholars are preparing to be college-ready from the moment they enroll.

Our middle school scholars are taught specific college-ready study, organization and time-management skills which are often taught to college freshmen in "Freshman-Success" courses. Your Legacy scholar will have the opportunity to advance her program of study according to her own individual strengths, even going to the grade-levels above her own to take courses for which she qualifies. Since every scholar at Legacy is a college-bound scholar, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all curriculum.
