Residential Life Program • Grades 9-12
Landmark's Residential Life Program emphasizes responsibility, respect, and independence. From the dining room to the playing fields, from the dormitories to the surrounding communities, students continue to learn positive self-advocacy skills. This fully-staffed program provides a round-the-clock living and teaching environment. Students learn how to manage their schoolwork and schedules, support their friends and roommates, and participate in the larger Landmark community. They also enjoy a great range of planned activities, outings, and social events. Residential life incorporates a structured, level-based system that gives students the opportunity to earn privileges as they develop and demonstrate their ability to consistently manage responsibilities such as time management, organizational development, and peer mediation skills.

Landmark High School utilizes a Privilege System that allows residential students to acquire more privileges as they demonstrate greater responsibility within the school community. The “Level System,” as it is called, encourages students to rise progressively from Level One to Six (the highest level) by increasing privileges and independence. • It rewards students as they grow and improve skills including time management, organization and social/communication. • It may also result in dropping from one level to a lower level for disciplinary infractions. The system is composed of six (6) levels: all students begin at Level One with a standard wake-up, bedtime and curfew. As students move up, they are rewarded with more flexible times as well as privileges such as in-room use of Internet access, T.V., refrigerators, food ordering and more. For details go to the High School Student/Parent Handbook
