Teaching at Landmark
Our faculty is at the core of our innovative, effective program of remediation. Landmark's instructional strategies and programs are based on our six teaching principles and over 40 years of classroom and tutorial experience. Our principles ensure that each student feels challenged, works at an appropriate level and leaves a class or program feeling successful and confident.
Founded in 1971, Landmark School is an independent, coeducational boarding and day school with elementary, middle, and college preparatory high school programs for students with language-based learning disabilities (dyslexia). Landmark individualizes instruction for each student and offers a program of intense remediation in small classes (no more than 8 students). We are considered a pioneer in the field, and focus our instructional strategies on classroom-tested practices and research-based strategies. We strive to teach our students to become independent learners who can develop the confidence to advocate for their own unique learning styles and needs. Landmark School is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Massachusetts Department of Education. The school is a member of Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools (MAAPS) and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
