Letter From School Leaders

Dear Great Oaks Legacy Families,

As we begin the 2016-17 school year, we are excited to begin work as Great Oaks Legacy Charter School. This merger allows us to combine resources to provide our students with a seamless Pre-K – 12th grade curriculum, as well as other exciting programming and extracurricular activities that span all grades. The merger further strengthens our ability to prepare every student for college success.

Some of the exciting developments we anticipate for the 2016-17 school year, include:

  • The roll out of our tutoring program for middle school students at our Legacy campus
  • Expanded enrichment opportunities at all campuses
  • A newly renovated gym and Science lab at our high school location
  • The class of 2017 – our first high school graduating class!

With the merger of Great Oaks and Newark Legacy Charter Schools, we are certain that every student will receive the resources and tools to succeed. We are so excited about the unified effort between two well regarded and high performing school communities. As always, we will go above and beyond for you. Through every step of the process, we will remain in communication with parents and families. Parents are encouraged to reach out to our administrative team with questions and concerns.

We are so proud of our students, parents, and faculty who are all dedicated to our mission. Thank you for all that you do.


The Great Oaks Legacy Team
