SAN ANTONIO – Students pre-K through eighth grade in the Cibolo area will benefit from a new educational opportunity this coming school year. Legacy Traditional Schools, a public, tuition-free network of charter schools, is opening its new Legacy Traditional Cibolo campus in the fall
Development on the 16-acre property, located at Cibolo Valley and Green Valley Road, began in January. Students enrolled for the fall semester will attend their classes in an on-site trailer as construction wraps up before moving to regular classrooms around January 2023, said a Legacy spokesperson. The general contractor for the project is Guido Construction.
Upon completion, the 87,000-square-foot campus will accommodate 1,410 students and consist of 47 classrooms, offices, a gym, athletic fields, a library, a piano lab, an indoor basketball court and artificial turf field, and a commercial kitchen and cafeteria, according to a press release.
Legacy, which operates in Arizona, Nevada, and Texas, already offers pre-K through 12th grade programs in the San Antonio area. Its campuses include Kelley Elementary, Walker Elementary, Lee Academy, and Saenz Jr. High School. The organization invested $7 million in enhancing the Kelley, Lee, and Saenz campuses including new paint work, new whiteboards, new flooring, parking improvements, gym renovations, and new piano labs and stages, among others.
