The Child School/Legacy High School
The Child School/Legacy High School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and New York State approved Non-Public Day School for students with learning challenges. We serve children from K-12, providing an academically rigorous program within a supportive environment. The Child School is a unique educational institution. Since 1973, we have provided children of all races, socio-economic backgrounds, and learning differences, a diverse, nurturing and educationally-centered academic setting. Specialized individualized programs are offered through which children experience the joy of success and advancements that previously were never thought to be realistically achievable. Most of all, often for the first time, our students experience the feeling of being included and accepted. Our students are individuals who are not limited by their differences. Our school has proven that, by effectively channeling our students’ differences, a new reality emerges that opens doors to college acceptances, rewarding careers and entrepreneurship.
