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.

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.

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.

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.

When we first started at Landmark we were very happy. There are many great teachers who really care about the students. There is very little physical activity with one small recess for most grades. The kids in K-2 have a very difficult time sitting still and as a result act out with poor behavior. Academic standards have gone down, parents concerns are not heard, and there is an unwelcome feeling throughout the school. There is no joy or fun in the school. The middle school offers nothing for the students and many of the teachers seem to dislike the students. There is no technology in the school and while they have computers they are Never used. The new grading system continues to be a mess with each teacher grading differently. Awards change without notice or criteria given. There is no help given to kids who are struggling and there are no extra programs for the gifted and talented kids.

I have 4 students in Landmark- 6th, 4th, 3rd and Kindergarten. They LOVE it here!! The moral focus, virtues, values and praise they receive to build self esteem and character is fantastic. They have truly developed as leaders. The fact that every teacher knows every student and their siblings and their parents is an invaluable tool in their education. It keeps accountability high and the bar is set high for every student to excel. I have 2 honor roll kids (and YES they are getting the extra challenge work they need to stay that way!) I have "average" kid who has improved greatly since being here and 1 who was in danger of being held back last year at Jeffco schools. The admin at Landmark worked with him all summer and tutoring and as a result, he missed this semesters honor roll by only 1 class....... We will be at Landmark until our Kindergartner is in 8th grade. All I can say NHA is PLEASE PLEASE open up a high school!!!!

My children have attended this school since it opened. At first I was very happy with the school, but as time goes on and my children advance, I see the cracks. This school does an excellent job in motivating parents to "believe" that what they are doing is superior, but sadly, the business of selling the school is their greatest strength. The teachers and staff have little experience. Yes, this is so they can pay them less, but also so they can teach their teachers how to constantly pitch the product. The teaching philosophies are dogmatic, passed off as advanced, without being so. This school really falls apart when it comes to middle school, as it simply isn't capable of meeting the needs of these grades in the slightest. The enrichment aspect of this school is laughable. It's all smoke and mirrors. This will be our last year at Landmark.

I am a former teacher of Landmark Academy, and I have to say it was the worst experience I've had in my teaching career. Almost the entire teaching staff had 0-3 years of experience; administrators specifically seek out inexperienced, less educated (no master's degree preferred) teachers so that they don't have to pay them as much. It was such a disappointing experience, and I felt bad for the kids and parents who had been led to believe that they were receiving a rigorous, "top-notch" education. It was all about parent perception, and it looks as though many of the parents are beginning to see through the hype.

My children attended this school the first year it opened, it was amazing. However after the first year the student/teacher ratio went from being on average 22-25 students to having 30 or more students per teacher. The middle school section of the school is not large enough for all of the students, the 6th graders were sharing lockers, not sure how they would handle introducing the 8th graders. By the end of the 2009-2010 school year the 7th graders were on their 3rd science teacher. The middle school kids are also treated like the elementary kiddos and were not in any way being prepared for high school. I will also third and fourth the bullying being out of control!! It is not taken seriously at this school! My kids will not be returning to Landmark Academy.

While I do think that the school does a remarkable job of teaching most of their students, it is unfortunate that children who are gifted or who have certain learning challenges are not getting their needs met. Unfortunately the special education team is relatively inexperienced, and they don't get a lot of support from the district or from their parent company, NHA (in Michigan). I agree that they definitely spend their fair share of time talking about moral virtues and the benefits of a college education; however, I also agree that it the morning assemblies and constant awards ceremonies are a bit much and do ultimately squelch many children's spirits at all academic levels. Additionally, I would like to echo that the new grading system is a nightmare that takes the meaning, understanding, and standardization out of what used to be a very simple process. No school-wide standard! Highly subjective!

I have 2 very different kids enrolled at Landmark. One excels, the other...not so much. I value academic excellence, but really feel they miss the mark in terms of inspiring the kids to be lifetime learners. I have never in my life seen a school (and it IS the WHOLE school) that can squash excitement like Landmark. I'm guessing a lot of the kids will eventually say, "no thanks...this is just not achievable and seriously no fun!!". I have attended the most incredibly boring "awards" ceremonies & graduations imaginable at this school. The principle scolds you for showing excitement and accuses you of clapping as though you were at a sporting event as the kids receive their awards. She is like a Disney caricature of an evil head mistress who says things to the zombie like students like, " Now children, I know you're excited for your classmates..."

This school is losing speed. The new grading system is a nightmare. This school puts on a facade of being an elite school, yet has nothing to offer your child if they are a high learner.

We have two students attending since the school opened in 2007 and a third to start in August. The academics (and moral focus) are right on. We attended a private school previously and this compares perfectly to it. We are sad our beloved Principal is moving on and helping in other areas of Landmark's 'Heritage Academy' but we're completely confident she'll leave it in very capable hands with the new Principal. We've been so happy with our teachers, principal and the wonderful office staff. I am at the school helping twice a week, sometimes more. I also see the janitorial staff are very diligent in the service they provide but also in caring for the kiddos in the hallways. It's comforting to see protective care for of our children. Our teacher had a baby recently and while she has been out, we have been very happy with our substitute teacher!

This School teaches our children the value of education, and to have future goals at an early age. This school has a high moral focus just one example would be saying the pledge every morning. The children work hard in school for thier grades and have a new moral focus every month such as respect.

The teachers and principal expect the more from the students than just middle of the road. Emphasis is placed on the students attending college, even having a 'college shirt' day every month when they don't have to wear uniform tops. The parents are not only able to be involved but encouraged. There are so many parents who volunteer their time to help with organizing, copying, reading to the children etc.

My school is one of the best schools in Colorado. They keep the parents active as well as all of the children. Learning,caring, and Hope is what they believe every child needs.I searched high and low for a school that could meet my child needs during summer break and the Principle took time out of her busy schedule to help me and show me compassion.The teachers greet their students with a hand shake for success every morning and they work hard tring to make sure no child gets left behind.Landmark Academy is truly one of a kind, I have never seen such a school as positive as this one!

My two children attended this school for one and a half years. Overall, we had been satisfied with the education our children were receiving. However, if a parent questions a policy that does not apply to a specific situation and which requires their child to take zeros because of a one day absence on the last day of school due to vacation, the school admin will not discuss nor compromise on the situation. They will give your child a zero on any tests instead. This lack of compromise and the school's obvious attitude of superiority over both parents and students when issues arise over policy was disturbing. I want my children to learn compromise in difficult situations, not stubborness and an attitude of 'we are in a position of authority and what we say goes, no matter what' Children and their parents do deserve respect and cooperation from a school.

I am very impressed that this school is so willing to adapt the schoolwork for as many children as necessary. In addition to an excellent education, Landmark offers a safe environment for my child to learn. The children are respectful as they walk down the hallways at any time of the day. This attitude of respectfullness is taught and fostered by the principal as well as the teachers. The environment of a school is just as important to me as the quality of education. I am so pleased that Landmark values the behavior and attitudes of the kids so much as to foster a positive environment throughout the school.

We are very pleased with Landmark! Our children have excelled in leaps and bounds. The school's academics are fabulous, the moral focus is imperative and put into practice. Come and spend a day at Landmark and see for yourself and review our test scores. It's wonderful to go in the doors at Landmark and at any moment and see other parents dedicating their time and efforts in their child's education. Not to mention being a role model for their children by taking an active interest. Our children have been attending since the school opened, and I am at the school consistently...parents are happy with Landmark. The facilities are nice, clean and orderly. The principals hold regular informal meetings to seek parent's input. As for sports or extra curricular activities, the school works in conjunction with the Rec Center, and there are sports or activities to join every quarter. It's stupendous.

My son is in his second year at this school and we both love Landmark! This school is amazing, the teacher and principal are amazing! My son's grades have just shot up. His MAP scores are off the chart. There seem to be no personality conflicts with the teachers and the kids which I have noticed at 2 other schools that he went to prior to Landmark. So I would tend to believe the academics are at a much higher level than at regular schools, since they are learning things that I know I did not learn in the 3rd grade, and I know several other 3rd graders in other schools, and they don't seem to have as much of a challenging work load. I do wish that there were more sports, but they do keep the kids working hard on academics. I love this school!

Its academics are wonderful and the children are learning things I learned at a much older grade. My son has excelled and moved up in the MAP scores, and they Reward your child for their grades. I recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to do well, feel appreciated, learn about respect and core values, which they are also treated with. They could have more sports, and a longer period of the sports that they do engage the children in, but this school really cares! We love Landmark!

We are fortunate to have a school like Landmark in our community. There was a huge need and they filled it with quality education. They also learn, encourage and practice virtues and moral principles in their relationships with students and student to student. The principals, teachers and staff are caring towards the students (know them by name and siblings not attending the school), and work diligently to give them the best education. It's refreshing to see parents consistently involved in the school by contributing their time and efforts towards their (and our) child's education. Our children's MAP scores have tripled since we have attended Landmark. The system and materials they use in teaching is a success. If you want sports or extra curricular activities, the Rec Ctr works with the school to provide a vaiety of activities which parents also particpate in. It's a wonderful opportunity, don't miss it!

My contacts with the principal right before school opened were never returned. This school is negligent in its offerings of music and fine arts except of the most rudimentary kind. Lack of an overall education is what will occur here. Students will be behind others, especially in a well-rounded arts eductaion, which fosters everything else.
