This school recently made many changes to their policies, giving students only three minutes to navigate the more than crowded hall. Even though they changed the students hall time, their tardy policy stayed the same. Also, many student have to go up and down stairs to their elective and PE/Health classes. THeir extracurricular programs are good, but often found more important than their core classes.
I recently transferred my daughter from Landmark to a smaller Jacksonville Middle School. I discovered that my daughter had begun skipping school (5 times in a 9 week period), and no one from the school had contacted me about the absences or required her to bring a note from home. I was extremely disappointed in the way this was handled at the school, and can't believe that no one notified me about the large number of absences. I have now transferred her to a smaller school where she will hopefully not be as likely to 'fall through the cracks'.
Great school for your kids. My kid went from being a C-B student to a A-B student at this school.
I would like to submit a review of Mr. Moody, 7th grade Math teacher. He is extraordinary in the time and effort he puts into teaching and coaching students in Math. He is a no nonsense, work hard kind of person and Landmark is lucky to have him.
Landmark is a great school for those students in advanced classes. For the average student or slightly above average student the experiece is not good. The school went several semesters with no math teacher and after finally getting one offered no help to the students. In fact the school slammed the students with low grades and no help. There is an extreme problem with theft. There are many students that bully other students. Watch out for the bus ride. Watch out for new 'houses' this means all the teachers in that 'house' are new and inexperienced. All 'A' schools are not equal. I found this school very disappointing at every turn. I recommend if you have to send your child here scream loudly for advanced classes otherwise try Clay County schools that way they can enter into an A high school as well instead of the D Sandlewood.
I want to thank Mr. Adams, Mrs. Evans(especially), and the football coaches at Landmark Middle. You have all be a great insperation to my son. I am a VERY involved parent and I listen to my children, and when they come home praising and talking about teachers, it tells me they are making a difference in my childrens life. Any time I have had a concern about ANYTHING, it has been addressed immediately and with care to assure my son continues to strive in his education. The teachers and staff at Landmark earn an 'A' in my book. THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! Mercedes Troche
