The new school year is quickly coming upon us and there are a few changes for the coming year.

First and foremost; we have a new principal. Paul has

High School to new and exciting times.

For returning students in the 10th grade, you all know that the biggest and

This will allow the bonds and relationships built between students and teachers to stretch over a longer period of time, enabling the Landmark staff to be more helpful to students and their families. The creation of the "Junior Institute" will also allow our older

week of school and we will have an open house for parents in early


As always, you can always stop by the building or call your Advisor.The first day of school is Thursday September 5th. Each student will

get a call from their Advisor who will provide specific information

concerning the first day. We will keep you posted.
