“I’ve really enjoyed the community. I feel like I’ve gotten to know a lot of young adults and cultivated some really important relationships,” remarked a student in Landmark High School’s residential video. One of the unique things about Landmark’s student life program is that teachers double as house parents and support staff in houses. This means that students see teachers not only in the classroom, but also in houses in the evening, out on the playing field as coaches, and in the dining hall... Read More
