MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY

Working at Landmark School

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-By-the-Sea, Mass. and our High School campus is located in the Prides Crossing section of Beverly, Mass.

Citizenship, residency, or work VISA in the United States are required.
