Academics

In Landon’s Upper School, Forms III through VI (or Grades 9–12), we seek to challenge you academically, open your eyes to the breadth of possibilities in your future beyond Landon, and teach you the skills you will need to succeed in that future. We prepare you to excel in college, but we also encourage you to develop artistically, athletically and ethically so that you may lead a full, successful life as an accomplished, responsible and caring man. You are guided in these endeavors by your outstanding teacher-coach-mentors and, in particular, by one faculty advisor who is assigned to you for the duration of your Upper School experience and is always available to listen, offer counsel, or talk about your passions.

    Tips for caring for yourself

    Here are ten tips on how to manage stress and be healthy from the Landon wellness team. We encourage students, parents, as well as faculty and staff to consider incorporating a few of these tips into each day. 

    Bridging science and structures

    Lower School students worked in groups to construct bridges using hot glue and uncooked spaghetti noodles. On demolition day, they put their bridges to the test, measuring the lightest bridge that could hold the most weight.

    Science takes flight

    Middle School students built large balloons out of plastic and calculated buoyant and downward force, making a prediction on how much weight their balloon would be able to lift. They put them to the test and learned all about the forces that are all around us in this hands-on exercise.
