Landmark High School is located in the Bayard Rustin building on 18th street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan. Founded in 1994 as one of the first small, non-traditional high schools in New York City, Landmark has stayed true to its progressive roots. Through the Performance Assessment Consortium, Landmark has a waiver from most State Regents exams. Our teachers work diligently to create project-based curricula that challenge students intellectually and prepare them for college and careers. We nourish a strong sense of community and we encourage independence, mastery, and empowerment. Our students graduate ready to navigate the world and succeed in future endeavors.
At Landmark, we value the building of strong relationships between students and staff. Our school has a strong restorative justice program. Our advisory program helps to cultivate a family-like environment in the school because every teacher serves as an advisor to approximately fifteen students.

- commitment to helping a diverse group of students meet ambitious goals
