Landmark High School

Overview written by the school: We are a small, college-preparatory school that offers a challenging academic curriculum with a strong emphasis on reading, collaboration, and project-based learning. All students have the opportunity to graduate with thirteen college credits through our College Now For All initiative. We are part of the NY Consortium, and students present and defend six PBATs (performance-based assessment tasks) before a committee in order to graduate. The PBAT process is rigorous, and helps to prepare students for the research and writing demands of college. Our advisory program ensures that all students have strong and trusting relationships with adults and peers in order to support a close-knit, positive learning culture.
