    "LHS has been a PROFOUND disappointment. Parent input is completely ignored because the teachers union reigns supreme. Leadership is impotent. Dress codes are not enforced. Crude language policy is not enforced. It seems morale among teachers is dismal. The math program tanked this year. Student academic anxiety is sky high because the system is failing them. Parents are not welcome to chaperone Home Coming (inside the actual dance). You will not be given a direct "no" answer. You are invited to take tickets, check coats or serve water but you are NOT allowed in the dance proper. This is frightening."

    "My student was a freshman this year, and I just figured this out -- DUH!!!! In relation to LHS's grading scale, an 89 is an A, a 79 is a B, and a 69 is a C. Really? What kind of school is this that grades as standard on a curve to inflate student grades? Sure does tell you something about their lack confidence in teaching and performance."

    "Academics? Does this school actually have academics? Legacy is a total "drama" school whose performance stinks! I, and many of the other parents I have spoken to, have not seen of any kind of academic excellence from this school except from students that would excel in any type of environment. The teachers do NOT care about student learning, all they care about are their statistics when it comes to passing so as to inflate their personal and school reputation. Students automatically get a 50% on ALL assignments even if they do not turn in anything, and get full credit when they turn in assignments weeks and months later -- how is that fair GPA-wise to the students who REALLY do the work? This is the WORST school my children have even been at and I cannot wait until I can put them in another school next year!"

    "Legacy is so mediocre. The kids are egotistical and ethnocentric. The school culture is cliquey and a lot of a person's self worth is placed on the amount of money they have. For a mostly upper middle class demographic the students are awfully provinicial. The academics are subpar and the none of the teachers are anything to rave about. They do the least that's expected of them and go on. The school should focus on providing better academics. Also, the gossip that's lurking everywhere is so immature. Can't wait to get out."

    "Legacy's statistics, especially student grades & graduation statistics are hugely inflated by their flunking no student policy. They pass ALL students regardless of performance or classroom attendance. Students receive nothing below 50% on ALL assignments, including missing assignments. If a student misses class even if unexcused they are exempt from taking quizzes and they are entered into the grade book in such a way that those points do not contribute toward their grade. My student should have flunked, but teachers INTENTIONALLY did not enter a bunch of missing assignments and entered just enough so that they squeaked by and passed the class (i.e., if all of the assignments had been accounted for, they would not have passed). No parent ever wants their child to fail, but if they are not held accountable for their performance and are not being prepared adequately to succeed in college, then I cannot say that the school is doing their job. Even involved parents only have so much control of their children and need teachers to help in such a way that they inspire their students to succeed and not set them up to fail simply by pushing them through the system to be another stat."
