This is a great school. My child enrolled in the 2010-2011 school year and I could not be happier with his experieince. Teachers are caring and professional. The office staff is kind and thoughtful. The administation is all about doing the right thing for kids. The parents and community own this school like its their own. We were a bit scared of middle school when our child reached that age. To our delight, the middle school team has been great in helping the kids through a tough part of life. The let the middle school kids be themselves while still holding them to a high set of moral and academic standards. The elementary team is fantastic. Each teacher is avaialble and engaged in their work.

We enrolled our children at Landmark starting the 2008-2009 school year. At the time the school was leaps and bounds above the other schools in the area. My children were challenged on a daily basis and always had something to talk about. That is until the 2011-2012 school year when a new principal came in. Class sizes ballooned (29+:1 ratio), test scores fell, bullying became rampant, and the school is now overloaded. The new principal ran off a lot of great teachers due to his inability to properly handle situations and support the teachers. Parents were pushed to the side in favor of allowing the "inmates to run the asylum" as it were. Despite requesting several meetings with the teachers and principal this past school year I was threatened with being charged criminally for being "too involved" in my childrens' education. We stuck it out for the last few months of the school year for the sake of our kids as we were moving anyway. If you can avoid this school I would. While there are still some good solid teachers still at this school they do not have good leadership, or any leadership at all really. Perhaps home schooling would be a better alternative.

I have two kids who started at Landmark for the 2013-2014 school year and both absolutely love this school. They have a rigorous curriculum and I am very impressed on how the teachers strive to advanced each student's knowledge from beginning of the year to the end, My son is in kindergarten, my daughter is in 6th grade and I am awe of what they have learned. My son is reading at a 1st and 2nd grade level as a kindergartner! and my daughter has developed a healthy self confidence that she tries out and participates in many extracurricular activities. We came from a long standing rated 'best school system in Colorado" to here and my daughter was BEHIND in math. she has caught up quickly. I love this school so much that I will be sad when they have to leave for high school . I highly recommend this school to anyone.

I like to find the good in all situations and sadly there are very few positives about Landmark. And, the bad significantly outweigh the good. First, I do not understand why there is such a demand to get into this school. I bought into the hype of oh, it has to be great since the waiting list is so long. However, the lack of warmth from the staff is disappointing. The dean is very approachable, thank heavens. But, the teachers do not welcome you in the classroom. The school hides from issues verses addressing them head-on. For example, easy access to inappropriate online photos available to youngsters. How can this happen?! The positives are the uniforms, however...lead by example...if you are to enforce a proper dress code and tucking your shirt in...then, the adults should have to as well! "Tattling" is pushed on to the kids from the teachers...which scares me because they are sort of bullying the kids into keeping their mouth shut. And, my one child was afraid to tell me something and finally wrote it down. Sadly, I could go on... :( On a plus, most of the parents whose children attend are wonderful and truly care.

I have just recently read the reviews since we have had an issue in the middles school with Bulling. It seems may parents are unhappy with the school ability to deal with the issue. I have figured out why, their teachers are bullies. If a child speaks up about a teacher's unfair treatment of them, after school and very appropriately they are bullied by the teacher. The staff would rather be right then do what is right. They will Lie and change the situation. In our instance the teacher admitted to calling my son a cheater and a liar both were decided she was wrong but no apology or anything to rectify the situation. So when they have a staff full of Bullies you can expect the students to mirror that behavior. My middle school son won't be there anymore I suggest parents speak up! It will make it harder on them but someone has to stand up to the BULLIES

Landmark's a great school. They have reached out to me on ideas to push my son such as tutoring and after school events. My son has never played Lacrosse but has stated he would like to try it. Landmark has opened different opportunities for my son and I am very excited for this school year.

Landmark is the best option in the area for an elementary/middle school. I would rather my children attend here than the other public schools. Last year Landmark was rated a B+ as a neighboring school was rated an F. As long as we are in the area. I will not send my children elsewhere.

We are moving on. Both our kids will not be returning in 2013- 2014. Definitely not a 7 school. Was a great school in the first few years, but slowly declined after the first principle left. Bullying is a big problem we had there that wasn't taken care of properly. Also I agree with another parent who said her child with learning disabilities was basically in the way of their 7 score. The turnover of teachers every year makes me wonder. However since most of my time spent last year dealing with bullying issues against our kid was falling on deaf ears with the admins there, I think I may have an idea.

Just because it is a 7.. It is not the Best. Hearing Horror stories from parents about this school. Kept my child on the wait list for this school and I am so glad I am with drawing my request. Thank you for letting me know the true scoop about this school!!!

Landmark Academy is one of the worst schools I've been too, im extremely impressed with how they can really SQUASH the fun in anything, for an example at an assembly a kindergardner clapped after a certain announcement and the was taken out by the princable and looked like a stern talking to out side the door. As a student undiagnosed with ADD I was labeled LAZY, STUPID, AND NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEIR SCHOOL! I have letters and emails to my Mom saying so. Sure their academics are through the roof, they start cramming COLLEGE into elementary kids! And then stress you out about it for your whole time there and it continues to stress you out even after you graduate! They are not there emotionally for their students, my little sister was severely bullied for 4 years, we voices it so many times I can't even count, the problem contenued though. Their teachers either pay attention to you and help you or like how they where with me is they ignored me to the best of their abilities. I agree with all of the ratings below under a 3 star and are unbelievably true,Landmark Academy is the worst school to send you child, coming from a student..

Landmark is a great place for kids. Teachers care about the students on a personal level. The adminsitration makes decision based on kid needs. Parents are involved and are at school daily to support students. I can't think of a place I would rather have my child. It would be great to habe a high school nearby that would continue the path my child is on.

At Landmark your child is just a number. What matters most are they numbers they produce. I have 2 very different children. One who excels and one who works hard but it just doesn't come to him quite as easily and because he doesn't produce the super high numbers, his best was never good enough. It's heartbreaking to see only a few children's work hanging outside of the classroom because the others just aren't good enough (even in kindergarten). I kept my kids here for 3 years hoping for the best but they just don't deliver .

Not as great as it sounds! I belive it gets a 7 because so many parents are so happy to get away from the really bad schools in the area that they uppraise Landmark Academy. I actually believe Landmark is more like a 5 or 6 on the highend of the scale. They have an extrememly high teacher turnover rate. Also the teacher to student ratio is something along the lines of 27:1 which is just ridiculous. They are in the business of running a business and your child is simply a number to them. They put a inexperienced and young teachers in grades that they should not be in. eg: Kindergarten teacher has no experience, and has a horrible time managing her students. The Kindergartners are developing self-confidences issues at an age that they shouldn't be. I believe Landmark is better situated for students from 3rd to 8th grade, but kinder through 2nd grade students need a diffrent approach to curriculum than Landmarks strict College thinking "Sit still and don't move around" approach that kinder through 2nd graders naturally are not programmed to do. The younger years are best spent being imaginitive and creative, instead of landmarks unimaginative boring self-confidence killing curriculum!

Landmark is top in the district in academic acheievement and growth. My kids are in elementary school at Landmark and our experiences have been nothing but positive. I believe that the supportive nature of the staff and the academic rigor at Landmark enhance student charater, motivation, and engagement in learning.

My children and I love this school. The staff is wonderful and my children's teachers are amazing. They have worked with them and personalized some of the curriculum to accomodate their levels. My only complaint is that not enough parents are involved.

This was NOT the school for my children. Only children who fit into their curriculum mold fit in here. They do not think outside of the box, or allow for individual creativity in learning. Children struggling with academic challenges and/or behavior are not understood and labeled very quickly. They made a lot of promises, but never once followed through. The school atmosphere is generally judgmental and unfriendly. There are a few teachers that went against the grain, but didn't last very long. They are also very selective in letting parents be involved in the classroom. They tended to be very territorial and would state that parent presence in the classroom was just "too disruptive for students to continue learning". They have no additional resources for children; such as, school psychologist, social worker, nurse, or behavior specialist. There is no "fun" student motivation. It is all based on academic scores. This doesn't work for children who are challenged and not motivated by competition. We pulled our children after trying to make this school work for over 2 years.

I am so glad that we decided to enroll our son here in the Middle School! I feel confident that he is getting the best in our community. The school leadership & teachers are making sure things continue at a high level. I feel good about the direction of this school. We look forward to all the terrific things the Middle School will accomplish, this year & next. He will actually be able to finish 8th grade having already completed Geometry... Go Lynx!

My child has attended Landmark for the past two years. What a blessing the middle school has been for my daughter. The teachers were amazingly hard working and dedicated to my child's success. Many teachers were willing to work with her before or after school with difficult concepts. I saw my child excel in math and writing these past years; both of which were areas of struggle for my daughter previously. The teachers are all highly qualified in there field. Teachers are approachable and easy to work with. It was so nice to have my child in such a structured and academic focused school. It was nice to have my child in a school where the teachers know her and encourage her success.

Our daughter started in the Spring of 5th grade. All was well till 7th grade. They went through several teachers in the first few months of school. The students are not held accountable for their behavior and disrupt classes, have no respect for the teachers. This year the bullying continues and lost one teacher two months into school. Dress code went down hill. There seems to be more parties/free time in 8th grade.

I feel so lucky to work with such a dedicated and passionate staff and administration. The professional development we receive through our parent company is unparalled. It shows in continued growth and achievement in our students. We engage the students in fun research based learning activities that are motivating and get them up and moving. It's wonderful to have an administration that supports our growth as professionals. I love the Landmark community of parents, teachers, and students that all work together to achieve the common goal of making learning fun.

In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
