Faculty Support: Resources for Our Exceptional Teachers

Our students find success at Landmark, and nearly all will tell you that they could not have done it without the guidance, dedication, compassion, and talents of our gifted teachers. In this complex and ever-changing world, these passionate educators are lighting the way for our students.

Though the pay is not high, our teachers choose to work here to make an impact on students who they know are not being served elsewhere.

Landmark’s supportive teaching environment is cultivated through:

•Rich learning opportunities and extensive training.

•Rewarding mentoring from veteran teachers.

•A funded master’s degree from Boston University Wheelock College.

•Small class sizes.

•Unrivaled daily one-to-one student tutorials.
