Founded in 2009, Legacy School, Bengaluru is a coeducational international day school that imparts schooling from pre-primary level through class XII. In 1984, Mrs Priti Sait set up Vidyaniketan Montessori preschool that offered an international pre-primary curriculum for children in the 2 to 6 years age group. Building further upon the mission of the Montessori, Vidyaniketan Academy was founded as an inclusive school offering the international GCSE & GCE curriculum and later reschristened Legacy School.
The school’s mission is to provide a progressive international education in a diverse learner-centred community and believes in empowering children with a meaningful education, which enables them to become reflective and successful individuals who will impact change in a global society.
The 3 acre LAN and Intelligent Wi-Fi enabled school campus hosts 32 spacious classrooms, 38 IT-enabled learning rooms, five well-equipped laboratories for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, Computer and Graphic Design, a well-stocked library featuring 7800 volumes, access to 80,000 volumes online through the British Council’s Library and access to Pro Quest online database, InThinking, IB Business Management and Apple Digital Library & iTunes U.
Other facilities include synthetic basketball court, four auditoriums with seating capacity of 400, a 450 seater amphitheatre, 75 workstations and 14 faculty cabins.
The Legacy School curriculum draws from pedagogical approaches such as constructivism, inquiry- based, reflective, collaborative, and integrative. The school provides opportunities for the children to explore, learn, grow and develop by facilitating an environment that is inclusive and offers positive learning.
