I have been going to this school my whole life and I have to say it is amazing! The teachers are very kind and helpful.

Over the last couple of years, the previous focus on academics at Landmark seems to have shifted. Teachers are now considered coaches, and students are expected to do a lot of self-teaching. I have been severely disappointed with the direction they have taken, and subsequently am removing my children after several years there. There are no advanced classes, expectations on academics are frighteningly low. The facility is beautiful, and parent involvement is high. Keep in mind, it's a charter school, and therefore you have no control over what changes they choose to make to your child's education. The administration is very unresponsive to concern, overall.
