Meet Noah–Legacy Prep has changed his life
Meet Noah—a vibrant 5th grader who loves hanging out with his friends, doing class activities and performing like a natural on camera.
Stephanie Williams—Noah’s mother—cannot deny the impact Legacy Prep has made on her son. Because of the school’s nurturing environment, Noah has grown more in one year than he did during the many years at his previous school.
While attending his former school, Noah was diagnosed with ADHD and struggled with some behavioral issues. Stephanie approached the faculty and asked them if they could provide support for Noah to improve his learning experience and behavioral performance.
However, his former school system did not provide the assistance Stephanie desired. It wasn’t until Noah began attending Legacy Prep that Stephanie felt she was heard and supported.
A family atmosphere
Now that Noah is at Legacy Prep, Stephanie finally feels assured that his needs are being met.
“One of the things I love about Legacy is that they always address my concerns. From the start of the year, they made efforts to resolve the behavioral issues he was experiencing. Yesterday, we got progress reports, and he had straight A’s. I can see a difference in him daily—it has been a big turnaround.”Stephanie Williams, Noah’s mother
Noah not only has achieved outstanding grades but also serves as a leader on the Safety Patrol and mentors younger scholars. This growth could not have happened without the attentiveness and care of the Legacy Prep staff.
“Although I am Noah’s primary teacher, there are many other teachers supporting him. We like to call ourselves the Legacy Prep Village. We each have a hand in each scholar’s growth.”Miss Kitchens, Legacy Prep Guide, 5th grade
An excellent work environment
Across the country, we have seen a rise in teachers leaving the profession due to burnout and a lack of support. However, Legacy Prep cultivates an environment where teachers can thrive.
Miss Kitchens was awarded Legacy Prep Teacher of the Year during her first year of teaching. She attributes this honor to the support she has received from her coworkers.
There are always teachers who can cover her class if she needs to take a quick break, and many of her coworkers often check in to see if she needs help with anything.
“I really appreciate the support. I don’t feel like I’m on an island by myself in my classroom. At any given time, there are multiple people around me supporting me.”Miss Kitchens, Legacy Prep Guide, 5th grade

Legacy Prep offers the resources parents and children need to be successful. Countless parents, like Stephanie, report that Legacy Prep was an absolute game-changer for their situation.
“It was one of the best decisions that I could have made. As a parent, I feel like I have a village of support surrounding me—I am no longer alone.”Stephanie Williams, Noah’s mother
