The Legacy School Expands, Opens New Building To Better Educate Kids With Learning Differences

In this season of school graduations, other news emerges on the education front.

Sykesville-based The Legacy School opens a newly constructed, 3,000-square-foot building to expand its existing school, which has been educating students with learning differences, such as dyslexia, since 2011. A grand opening ceremony — with ribbon cutting for a new building — takes place on May 28, 2014, between 11: 30 a.m. and 1 p.m., with main events beginning at noon.

“This school is truly unique — and its expansion offers hope and help to families, across the greater Baltimore area, whose children do not learn well in existing academic settings,” says Aileen Eskildsen, Legacy School board member and parent to 10-year-old Ryan, who attends Legacy. “Its expansion mirrors the pressing need in the community for this type of school.”

Although situated in Sykesville, Md., The Legacy School continues to attract students from Baltimore, Howard and other surrounding counties. Why? The answer: one-on-one instruction.
