MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY

Working at Landmark School

Employees at Landmark School enjoy intellectual challenge, a strong and supportive community, and personal satisfaction. Landmark School serves students in grades 2 – 12 with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. Our students have average to above-average intelligence and no behavioral challenges and are curious and eager to learn but struggle in traditional school settings.

The Landmark approach is unique, established, proven, 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.

Approximately 470 students attend Landmark each year and another 150 attend our summer programs. We are located on two campuses on the North Shore, just 30 miles from Boston. Our Elementary•Middle School campus is located in Manchester, Mass. and our High School campus is located in Prides Crossing in Beverly, Mass.

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.

TEACHER RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Teachers at Landmark School say that their experience here is often life changing. Faculty members at Landmark School benefit from the structure, support, and mentorship of our unique Teacher Residency Program. It is the springboard upon which teachers hone skills and build mastery while working full time earning an advanced degree. Participants gain hands-on skills in the classroom and the residential life program (high school only), and are enrolled in a fully subsidized Master of Education Degree in Special Education from Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development.
