Parents and EMS faculty and staff lined the sun-lit parade route and cheered as the students, dressed in creative, intricate costumes, passed by. The Vocabulary Parade is one of the most anticipated year-end traditions at EMS.

On Saturday, June 1, 2019, 71 seniors graduated from Landmark School. Carrying on Landmark tradition, the soon-to-be graduates started their morning parading through campus, each taking a turn to ring the bell, and walking down "the hill" one last time before making their way to the Prep Building where they awaited their cue to line up in the Alice Ansara Athletic Center. A standing-room-only crowd awaited their arrival as they were ushered to the stage by two bag pipers and senior marshals: ... Read More

"Our students have been interested in Landmark's presence on social media for a while, and it made sense to harness some of this enthusiasm to create a program where they could learn, be... Read More

Landmark High School observed the Day of Silence on May 13. The purpose behind the day is to acknowledge the silencing many people feel by not being able to express themselves as individuals. The movement is run nationally by GLSEN and is designed to help honor the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning) people who have been silenced by those who do not or have not accepted them. Showing our support is especially important now, as students who identify as LGBTQ face... Read More

On April 22, 2019, Robb Genetelli, dean of students at the High School, bravely and selflessly donated 60% of his liver to Guido Meade, the spouse of Assistant Dean of Students Andrea Meade. (Both are doing well and are recovering at home.) I wanted to get an idea of how this heroic act came to be, so I interviewed Mrs. Meade. We discussed how the Landmark community has supported the Meade family through its struggles over the past year.
Mr. Meade was diagnosed with... Read More
