Very dangerous environment. I am a substitute teacher. Both times I subbed at this school fights broke out the 2nd time being in the classroom I subbed in. No support from administration at all. The fight that broke out in my classroom was male/female physical fight. Other students were in the line of fire as well as myself. Administration blew it off as a "personality conflict". If your child goes to this school and you have no other options I would highly recommend your involvement. If admin does nothing make your voice be heard and demand results even if you have to go to the school board.

This school is great there isn't a lot of fight actually few that I know about the teachers are great and landmark middle school is so much better then kernan middle school.
I go to Landmark Middle School it's a great safe school you sit at one table and have to stay on one side of hallway it keeps others safe and from getting hurt and it has lots of programs so you are able to get skip up and they also have douglas anderson coming to the school for the talented students so this is a great school for all students.
This is not a school you want your kids to go to! This is my son's first and last year here. He has not recieved any help from teachers(he has a learning disability) as required by his 504 plan. I have contacted the teachers and asked that they email at anytime and I never heard anything back not even when his grades drop. If I could give negative stars I would! SO DISAPPOINTED IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL!
Not a good school!!! 1)forced to sit at the same lunchtable everyday 2)forced to stay on one side of the hallway and get a detention if u turn around because u passed your class ect. 3)cant have your phone out at lunchtime or it gets confinscated EVEN ON YOUR FIRST DAY!!!! 3)restrooms are always locked up inbetween class and teachers arent aloud to ever let students leave class even if its an emergency. 4) teachers cant control bad kids that are yelling and throwing papers at people. This is just a few of the horrible things about it. I would need a book to list them all. And dont think i am making stuff up i go currently go there. I would rather be in a jail cell for seven hours then be at school for seven hours.
This school is horrible. If your kids are being bullied they do nothing. My daughter filed 2 reports and I was not contacted about it. My daughter was basically brushed off. They did nothing about it. I'm now contacting other people and luckily my daughter won't b their much longer.
Great teachers super students and awesome location.Probably the best kept secret in education. I highly recommend the Honors Academy. Students in this program receive the best preparation possible for high school and beyond.
I once went to Landmark Middle School and I would like to inform everyone that if I could go back to there I would do it in a heartbeat! I well never forget the time I had at Landmark and the things that I learned. The teachers there are excellent the opportunites there are amazing and I learned things that i would never learn anywhere else. Sometimes when hearing people talk bad about the school i get very upset because most people never went there as a student and the students are really the only ones that can judge how good the school is because they are the ones going there everyday. And i promise you that if you ask anyone who went there like me they will say it was the best three years of my life. Abosutely unforgetable. So don't believe everything you hear about this school because you can NEVER judge a book by it's cover. THANK YOU LANDMARK FOR EVERYTHING!!!
I wasn't very impressed with Landmark Middle School from the moment I went to 6th grade Orientation. Orientation consisted of going to the gym to order and pay for gym clothes pick up my son's schedule (which had the wrong classes) picking up a school map and standing in line for 2 hours to get his photo taken for a school Identification card. We weren't allowed to walk around the school or meet any teachers. I hated that. My attitude has changed toward the school after meeting my son's Math Science History Language Arts and Band teachers. These 5 people are the only reason I like Landmark. They are dedicated to my son's education. The teachers communicate through phone calls and emails. They have a weekly collaboration meeting with parents. They each also have class websites that keep us informed on classwork homework & other important information.
Please check this school out yourself. I don't know why but the press seems to focus only on the negatives at this school and they ignore all the great things happening here. I see great media about JWJ and Paxon but knowing children that attend there I can factually state that those schools incur the same stealing and fighting that happens here. Do not opt for a magnet school in a bad area. This is a great school who doesn't receive its just due. At least check it out.
2 of my children attended landmark the both got attack and no one did anything
I am an eighth grader at landmark in the honors program that gets straight A's and I only have good things to say about Landmark. Parents might argue that Landmark isn't a safe school or the kids are crazy but honestly it is a accurate reflection on our world today. Honestly I didn't want to go to Landmark. I tried to get into a magnet school and I didn't make it because of the lottery system. The last resort was Landmark but knowing what I know now I couldn't be happier where I am getting a well-rounded education in both academics and athletics. I love Landmark and I am saddened that I going to high school next year. )
This school needs a good cleaning there's dried-up gum everywhere on the bricks in the breeze way that looks like it's been there for years. Some of the chairs in the classrooms are very filthy.
I've been going to landmark since 6th grade i am now going to 8th.And i have to say the first year was a little rough but you need to teach your kids who to hang with and who not to.Landmark is really a nice school however not always nice students.However as grades go if your child is willing to learn they'll have no trouble.I've made straight A B honoral my whole time at Landmark.Great teachers and staff i love this school.
Very unhappy with the school and the out of control atmosphere is down right dangerous for our children.
school needs to decrease number of fights. the teachinq circulum is qood .
My daughter is in her 3rd year at LM in the Honors Academy. Her FCAT scores have been 4's & 5's so she is obviously receiving the instruction she needs. She has mostly excellent/responsive teachers. I communicate via email and all of her teachers respond within 24 hours and even at night/weekends. It is not the same as elementary school but no middle school is. I was hesitant because of rumors and decided to try Landmark and have been very happy that my child is so close to home. Dr. Henry (principal) is approachable as well as the administrators and any issue that has come up has been resolved. I strongly recommend being involved with PTA or SAC as this is how you will stay involved with your child and know what is really going on in the school. Both meet only 1x each month for 1 hour.
I love this school the teach and coaches are exlence
sound weried but since i arrived to land mark i finally have friend there nice when you get to know them a land mark there nice especilly there coach Foy. but there are fight but only because peple say not so nice stuff about other people and they take it harse but i never got into a fight yet and proble wont hopefully but you know all you have to do is not make bad comment about people but if you do go to this school your going to make lots of friends im a stunt a land mark and prould to say it 2 sam7th
My problem with this school is teacher response to parent phone calls and how they handle problems between students. I personally have had problems with my daughter since she began there this year. I always heard Mayport Middle is so 'BAD' but to my surprise I feel Landmark is alot worse. I would strongly recommend parents to look and see if there is second option school before enrolling at this not productive facility.
