The school does the best with what resources it has. The reality is that it serves around 300 students with excellent technological resources, and teachers who are extremely well versed in the needs of LD students. Many complain about the high tuition, but with only 300 students and without state funding, it's only logical. For students who cannot afford the tuition, there are definitely ways that they will help you afford the school, provided you have displayed a high work ethic and desire to succeed. At this point, Landmark is not meant to be a place where students go to have fun and the full college experience. It is a two-year school with an Associate's Degree offered. They put their money back into the school, in order to constantly adapt to the evolving landscape of higher education as it concerns LD students. If a student goes in with a strong desire to learn about themselves, and a willingness to make improvements in their academic approach, they will leave her prepared for long term success in education, and in their careers. I recommend this school to parents with LD children, whether high or low functioning, who have just graduated high school and not yet applied to college. The high cost will undoubtedly be worth it in the long term for your children.

Some of the courses are unexpectedly difficult to students coming from highly rated academic backgrounds. However, Landmark students are all the better for that because it forces them to try new study methods that can maximize their performance while minimizing procrastination. The professors, for the most part, are extremely willing to get to know their students and address their learning needs. I encourage each student to develop a strong rapport with their professors, as their recommendations will be very valuable when applying to other schools or jobs.

Professors are, for the most part, amazing, available, and accommodating. The workload is fairly light; I saw it more as practice dealing with my LD than actual college work. The academic resources on campus, especially the DCAS (writing/science support) and math lab, are great. If you're coming from/looking to go to a competitive college, you'll almost certainly find the work below your level,'although you can alleviate this somewhat by choosing classes wisely. I failed a class my first semester because it was so easy I didn't bother to show up except for tests. Teachers are very strict about attendance. If you start having serious problems, there's a great support system of advisors, counselors, and professors in place to help.
