Beginning with Children is a small network of public K-8 charter schools and a high school and college success program (the Legacy Network). Our schools focus on our students’ academic growth while creating nurturing and robust educational environments infused with rich arts instruction and a deep commitment to experiential learning. The Legacy Network provides comprehensive academic and career development services to support students to and through college.
Founded in 1992, Beginning with Children was a catalyst for a movement that changed the landscape of public education and has proven that success is not limited by zip-code. For information about Beginning with Children, please visit our website at www.beginningwithchildren.org
