Although Landis is in center city it is the best out of all the middle schools in Vineland. Teachers there truly care about their students and they have a very hard working and dedicated principal.

Posted January 22, 2010

the school isn't what I expected for my child. A few teacher's are doing a very good job. But others could do alot better. The principal is very unfair when it comes to discipline. The school has alot of bullying.

About the tests

The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
