Landmark East School is dedicated to helping children with learning differences reach their potential and realize their dreams. Since 1979, we have helped over 1000 students and their families. Many of these young people have set goals, mastered skills and celebrated milestones they never believed possible, including post-secondary education: community college and university programs.

Landmark East School is committed to developing a progressive and stimulating learning environment. We continue to identify ways that curriculum, programs, facilities and the overall student experience can be improved. Building on our existing strengths and cultivating new opportunities helps us grow and flourish.

It breaks our hearts to turn away students whose families are unable to enrol because of funding. One of Landmark East School’s strategic priorities is to increase the size of the endowment fund. Every year, our endowment generates income used to provide tuition support and ensures that the Landmark East School education is within the reach of learning difference students with promise – not finding success in their current school.

By investing in the Student Bursary Fund you would be helping to reduce the economic barrier for families in need, which would allow more students the opportunity to access the individualized program offered at Landmark East School. For students with learning differences, nothing can replace an exceptional educational program focused on their particular needs. You will be giving these young people a very real chance to succeed in whatever they choose to do as adults.


Your donation is an investment in the future of this exceptional school – a school that helps hard-working students achieve their full potential. Please join our growing team of family members, alumni, teachers, staff, directors, trustees and community supporters who have made a commitment.
