I think people should know that Landmark is a great place to make memories. I joined this school when I was in 7th Grade and I loved it ever since. The school has amazing teachers who will sit down with you after school if necessary and will help you and make sure you get the things you need. You also have amazing classmates that are with you through out the whole entire time you attend the school. I really like how you can form a personal friendship with a teacher here. My school really does not have to improve everything it teaches us and makes us do is for our own benefit and it will help us later in life. I really suggest you have your child attend this school.

I go to this school, and honestly, it's the best place I've ever been. Please don't pay attention to the other negative comments. Landmark has in no way declined academically, and their program is still going strong. No school is perfect, and we have gone through some tough times. But we're still here. I love this school. You won't regret enrolling your child in Landmark.

Our family attended this school for years. Over the past few years, the quality of the school has declined both academically and in sports. I raised 3 boys who attended from Kindergarten through 10th grade. We enjoyed their years at the school but sadly, things have changed. The news of the multiple mishaps is true. I believe there are too many excuses from the school and church leaders and not enough change. Best of luck to anyone who decides to attend.

This is an amazing school! I started in K5 and stayed all the way till I graduated. I have learned so much and had an amazing time at Landmark. They use ABeka program which is an advanced program comparable to AP courses, and it definitely pays off in college! I totally will send my children here when they come. Great Bible principles too!

This school is not what I expected. There are f recentnews reports of teachers engaging in inappropriate behavior with students. The teachers have years of experience and the school is doing well academically. There problem is with their administrative staff. They are reactive rather than being proactive. Children are bullied on a regular basis and the school does nothing to stop it. The new principal is trying his best to get things under control but I'm sure he's in over his head with complaints. If you can afford a better school, run and don't look back. Stay away, you will regret putting your kids here.

Well my daughter went to this school since kindergarten and we finally pulled her out this year. This school is going down hill!! They are not accredited as of this year also. And their administration staff should practice what the preach!! So if you want your child to get a good education and "BE SAFE" go else where..

I have 2 children that attend Landmark and their academics level are higher than their friends that attend the public schools in Polk county. I only have praises for the leaders of Landmark for their Christ honoring leadership!

I think they should improve more things, and they should not be as political wtih some things

The school uses ABeka curriculum - which is an excellent curriculum, and they have a strong reputation in the area of sports. They offer Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Softball for the girls and Football, Basketball, and Baseball for the guys.

I have an 8th grader, a 4th grader and a 3 year old attending landmark. I would not want them to attend anywhere else. Landmark focuses on educating the child while pointing them to christ. There is no finer place to entrust my children. Landmark helps me and my husband to raise our children in a world that wants to destroy families starting with our children.

This school is a wonderful place for a Christian education! Its been around for a while so is proven! I graduated there in 1977..and all 4 of my children graduated from either the school or the homeschool program, and now, 2 of my granddaughters are in their 2nd year there! This school has stood the test of time with our family as a place to learn the things needed for life..both every day life & in your walk with the Lord. The teachers are loving and supportive and Bro. Carter leads the work as a wonderful testimony to all. Lynn ..1977 graduate

I have been going to Landmark for 8 years. I would highly recommend this school for a family that wants their child to learn about how to walk with Christ. It is an excelent choice if you already attend Landmark Baptist Church. The people there are friendly and are willing to do anything for the safety of your child and to assure you that they are being lead the 'right' way, through Christ! The one-on-one teaching also makes things easier for your child to understand it the first time, but if your child is having some difficulties, they will be happy to contact you and to make sure that your child is getting the help he/she needs. This year they have started a band directed by Mr. Morton, an excelent Christian, they also have choir for the high school and middle school. There is also a variety of sports to choose.

My daughter has been going to Landmark at the age of three. I think it is a great school and all the staff and students are always helpful. My daughter is learning so much because of the curriculum that they use to teach.The only problem I have is they should try to do more trips with the kids.

I have a child in first grade and Pre-K at Landmark. It is awesome. My children are learning on a high level and are shown love and prayer all day long. My oldest son started Pre K here and every year I am afraid that the next teacher would not stand up to the other. So far every teacher has held up to the test. My son loved his K-5 teacher so much over the summer he cried because he missed her. I give this school and A+.
