Residential Life at Landmark

three high school girls in dorm Landmark's Residential Life Program emphasizes responsibility, respect, and independence. From the dining room to the playing fields, from the residences to the surrounding communities, students continue to learn positive self-advocacy skills. This fully-staffed program provides an around-the-clock living and teaching environment. Students learn how to manage schoolwork and schedules, support friends and roommates, and participate in the larger Landmark community. They also enjoy a great range of planned activities, outings, and social events. Residential life incorporates a structured, level-based system that gives students the opportunity to earn privileges as they develop and demonstrate their ability to consistently manage responsibilities such as time management, organizational development, and the ability to navigate the complexity of their social environment.

Level System

Landmark High School utilizes a Privilege System that allows residential students to acquire more privileges as they demonstrate greater responsibility within the school community. The “Level System,” as it is called, encourages students to rise progressively from Level One to Six by increasing privileges and independence. It rewards students as they grow and improve skills including time management, organization, and social/communication. It may also result in dropping from one level to a lower level for disciplinary infractions. The system is composed of six levels: all students begin at Level One with a standard wake-up, bedtime, and curfew. As students move up, they earn more privileges and independence such as refrigerators, food ordering, gaming systems, extended bedtime, and more. For more details please go to the High School Student/Parent Handbook.
