COMMUNITY IMPACT

Improvement of charter school facilities to increase offerings and programming Current enrollment of 1,250 students with the capacity to increase enrollment to 1,430 students. Nonprofit Legacy Charter School, a public K-12 charter school located in Greenville’s Sterling community, is constructing and renovating over 210,000 sq. ft. of school facilities to include the school’s first formal library, a renovated kitchen, new classrooms, a new gymnasium, and handicap accessibility for the property. With total project costs of $26.9 million, GNMO II provided $13.7 million of Qualified Low Income Community Investments (QLICIs) to be used for new construction. Established in 2010, Legacy Charter has 1,200 students, of which 94 percent are minority and 100 percent participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Legacy’s founder William Brown states that the school “began from the notion that all students deserve the chance to receive a world class education, one where they are taught how to lead a healthy life.”
