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

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
