Philosophy

Landmark East develops individualized academic programs that address both the strengths and needs of the student. To learn, a student must first understand and then practice applying newly acquired knowledge.

Skills are practiced and reinforced across subject areas. The student is moved from teacher-guided learning toward independence and self-ownership.

A student’s academic progress and social development are closely monitored by staff advisers who monitor progress and communicate closely with parents.

Landmark East is committed to maintaining an average student/teacher ratio of 3:1.

Students and their parents need to actively participate in the development and achievement of goals. Goals are both short and long term and will vary according to the student’s age and self-awareness. Such goal setting lays the foundation for the student’s future education.

Landmark East School admits qualified students of any race, gender, religion and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities at the school. It does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies, admissions, financial aid, athletics and other school-administered programs and services. This policy is in accordance with the Nova Scotia Human Rights Act.
