Every detail of the Legacy Charter School has been carefully considered: it is efficient, durable, and inexpensive without looking overly institutional. The school is designed to support K-8 students, with bright and engaging design that flows from the site's unusual geometry, and accommodations tailored to each grade level. In addition to classrooms, each building floor includes spaces that can be used for small-group or individual instruction.

In 2018, Legacy was awarded LEED Platinum certification for its rooftop solar panels and other features, which double as tools to educate students about sustainability. The project received a Distinguished Building Honor Award from the Chicago Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2018.
