Landmark School was founded in 1971 by Charles “Chad” Drake with the goal of educating students whose reading, writing, spelling, and mathematical skills did not match their thinking and problem-solving capacities. Most called these children dyslexic or learning-disabled. Chad saw their promise, and called them bright and capable. We opened our doors with 40 students and a small group of teachers on one campus in Prides Crossing, Massachusetts. Since then, Landmark has grown to 450 students on two North Shore campuses, and a faculty and staff of more than 300. Today we are recognized internationally as a leader in the field of language-based learning disabilities.
