The Legacy School for Integrated Studies is a New York City public school founded in 1993 with the Coalition of Essential Schools and New Visions for Public Schools. The partnership of the Legacy School for Integrated Studies is committed to promoting intellectual engagement that fosters creativity, diversity and personal responsibility. We are a small school that provides a safe, personalized environment to a multicultural, urban community.

At Legacy, we want our students to develop their capacities for creative and independent thinking as well as independent judgment so that they can act in a free and morally responsible way. Our curriculum helps them to achieve the practical skills and knowledge necessary to meet the challenges of the immediate future so that they can take their next steps in life. The success of their education will be measured by what our students know and can do now and by how they continue to develop as human beings throughout their lives.
