Landon School is an independent day school for boys in Grades 3–12 in Bethesda, Maryland. A headmaster, selected by the Landon Board of Trustees, is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the school.

Reporting directly to the headmaster are the assistant head of school for academics, who manages the school's curriculum and instructional practices; the assistant head of school for enrollment, admissions and community, who oversees the admissions process; and the heads of Landon’s three divisions: Lower School (Grades 3–5), Middle School (Grades 6–8) and Upper School (Grades 9–12).

A Board of Trustees focuses on maintaining the long-term health of Landon, including its financial stability. The Board’s duties include hiring and evaluating the headmaster and devising major policies that will drive the future direction of the school.
