Selecting the right school and environment is one of the most important decisions a parent and student must make – a decision with profound influence for years to come. We appreciate you choosing Legacy High School.

Legacy High School is a private school serving a neurodiverse exceptional student community – neurotypical, gifted and children who are high functioning with some form of developmental delays such as ADD, ADHD and Autism. Legacy High School combines curriculum with core technologies that enhance teaching and learning by tailoring the course content to each student’s learning needs and meeting students at their level. Every student will receive individualized academic, social emotional and executive functioning skill development all to enrich their lives.
Our academic programs are student-centered with a special emphasis on building strong foundations, engaging students in the learning process, providing avenues of creativity and development through small teacher/student ratio. Hands-on, thoughtfully designed activities bring students to high levels of thinking and application. There is no model like Legacy High School in the state of Florida. This highly effective approach enables students to gain momentum in their education and pursue the rigorous studies needed to achieve college and career readiness.
At Legacy High School, we believe all students can reach their fullest potential through an education based in both a structural and enriched environment. Legacy High School offers courses that may be taken for credit recovery by students who didn’t pass a course on their first attempt. Our courses are designed to find and fill learning gaps to help students earn a passing grade. We have an incredible staff and an amazing student body. Our teachers and parents value education and support the school with their time and talents.


Our mission is to provide an environment where students can learn and grow to achieve their own legacy. Legacy High School provides comprehensive, individualized, science-based education for the exceptional child as well as children on the autism spectrum and other developmental delays so the children can achieve their full academic and social potential. The school’s curriculum provides effective treatment and education programs to children and their families based on Applied Behavior Analysis.

“Families should be able to focus on what is important at home, confidence, security, love and acceptance of our children’s quirks. Families should not have to battle the system for the special environments their children need to thrive.” – Pamela Furr Clarke, Co-Founder


To encourage positive behaviors with our students, we have created our Legacy Values for our students and staff to foster, reinforce and always encourage. These values will be reinforced throughout the school year, and positive demonstration of values by our students will be communicated to the Parents.  The vision and purpose of these selected values is to instill in our students they are learning and growing as people, leaving a L.E.G.A.C.Y. along their journey.


Lead by example, support others to be successful, and inspire others to greatness


Seek to understand what others are going through, and be aware and sensitive to their feelings


Be willing to give or share with others, help those in need, and always act with kindness.


Be real and true, show others who you are, uncompromising, and yet respectful of others.


Face adversity, persevere in tough times, and speak up for yourself and others when something seems wrong.


Live life to the fullest, vigorously and with a zest to learn, laugh and be yourself.

Our History

Legacy High School is a division of Puzzle Box Academy, a Florida LLC co-founded in 2014 by Pamela Furr-Clarke. She saw the need for high quality early intervention in Brevard County for children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. As her son grew up, she started focusing on the need of older high functioning and exceptional children. This led to the division now known as Legacy High.

In 2022, Puzzle Box Academy celebrates 8 years in business, serving over 100 families across Brevard County, with 3 locations – our ABA Therapy clinic and pre-k in Rockledge Florida, our elementary school in Palm Bay which also provides ABA Therapy, and our Junior and Senior high school students attend Legacy High School, in Melbourne, FL.

Legacy High School serves young adults affected by various learning and developmental disabilities including ADD/ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have also welcomed neurotypical students starting at 6th grade. Our program runs 10 months, August through May, with highly qualified staff who participate in ongoing professional development. Legacy High Boarding School is set to have it’s opening days in August 2025.
