We work hard and strive to meet the goals and objectives established by the Moreno Valley Unified School District, the California Department of Education, and the Landmark School community.

On behalf of the teachers and staff, I would also like to thank you for all of the support we receive from you at home. You really do make a difference in the overall success of the school and your child’s education. We appreciate the time you spend helping your child with homework, encouraging them to attend all of their classes, checking on their progress, and remembering to make reviewing the Landmark student planner a daily family activity.

Please feel free to share your time, ideas and suggestions with the school. It is an honor to be a member of the Landmark community of dedicated teachers, staff, parents, and students. By working together, we can continue to make Landmark Middle School an even greater place to learn and grow.
