    The Honors Academy at Landmark Middle School

    Thank you for your interest in the Landmark Middle School Honors Academy. We know that choosing the right program for your child at the middle school level is an important decision. The Honors Academy at Landmark Middle School is designed to meet the learning needs of highly motivated and academically successful students. The goals of the Honors Academy are not only to prepare students for success in future academic challenges, including programs in DCPS accelerated high school programs (Early College, IB, AICE, AP Capstone), but also to provide support and inspiration to all students in developing skills, attitudes, and the responsibility necessary to become productive global citizens. Technology is an important component of the Honors Academy and strives to teach students to be active, confident, and thoughtful users of technology as they creatively and logically complete projects, address challenges, and solve problems.
