Teaching at Landmark School

Teachers at Landmark School say that their experience here is life changing. They find intellectual challenge, a strong and supportive community, and personal satisfaction. Landmark School serves students in grades 8 – 12 with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. Our students are curious and eager to learn but struggle in traditional classroom settings with language skills.

The Landmark approach is unique, established, and effective. We are the largest school of our kind in the country. Faculty members work with students in small classes of 6 – 8, address their individualized needs through a daily one-to one tutorial, and support each other and the student body through regular and consistent communication, on-the-job training, and mentoring.

Qualifications for Teaching at Landmark School

Applicants should have a BA/BS, strong language skills, a comfort level with school-age children, and a desire to make a difference for students whose literacy skills are not keeping pace with their intellect. A Massachusetts Certification in Moderate Disabilities and/or a Master's degree are preferred but not mandatory as comprehensive training is provided for all new faculty members. Citizenship, residency, or work VISA in the United States are required.
