Legacy Academy of Excellence, a member of the Rockford Charter School Alliance, announced that its board of directors appointed Robert King as President. As Rockford’s first charter school, Legacy Academy focuses on each student’s unique abilities and talents in order to foster academic development and individual growth. Legacy Academy employs a well-structured, rigorous curriculum incorporating Core Knowledge, Direct Instruction, and International Baccalaureate reform models.
Legacy was designed by CompEd Charter School Network, a nonprofit organization that develops and manages exemplary public K–12 charter schools. As a result of their systemic approach to school management, both staff and students are able to reach their full potential personally and academically.
King is a veteran of the banking industry who previously served as treasurer of Legacy’s Board of Directors for the past four years.
