New Legacy Charter School

Jenny Soto dropped out of High School in 2014 after finding out she was pregnant.

Instead of giving up hope of an education Jenny and her son, Erick, attended New Legacy Charter School in Aurora, Colorado.

This charter school works to help two generations at a time, tailored to unique and multifaceted needs of teen parents.

Students bring their children to class with them and are assisted by the charter school staff in caring for their children during the school day while attending classes.

Jenny said the early learning caretakers have been like second moms

"At this school you're not alone"

Jenny wants to continue her education and study nursing.
