Learning 2020-21

Learning Plan

 

In these uncertain times, boys need structure, flexibility, inspiration, and connection more than ever. Landon's plan for learning in 2020-21 is designed to provide our boys with meaningful, engaging experiences through distance, hybrid, or on-campus instruction and to retain our sense of community during a school closure.  

Our education has always been about more than beautiful spaces and facilities. It’s about knowing how to reach boys whether on campus or at home. And it is rooted in the relationships between boys and teachers they respect—teachers whose creativity and dedication enhance every boy’s experience. No matter the platform or channel, boys thrive at Landon because we design and adapt our program to fit the ways boys learn best.

    Parents on 2020-21 Learning

    These are difficult days...and we are glad Landon is trying to help the boys stay engaged and learn, while sharing what is going on with us parents, who too are learning to cope with the present social distancing and dependence on technology to do our jobs remotely from our offices.  We know this pandemic will end, and appreciate Landon's enthusiasm to make the best of it."

    I'm super impressed by the professionalism and excellent job the teachers are doing. I  know that distance learning is hard for a teacher as well and I have walked in and heard the teachers' lessons, seen some of the work, and I am really proud of the Landon teachers for the super way they adapted to distance learning and how well they are doing."

    "The teachers in general have been amazing at checking in on the social-emotional piece with the boys and communication. The workload seems reasonable, and our son doesn't feel like he's getting busy work."

    "We think it is wonderful that we are getting the boys back to campus. We feel the COVID protocols that Landon has put in place make this a very safe endeavor.  Our son has been grateful to be with his peers and start making friends as well as in-person connections with his teachers."
