For bright students with ADHD or LDs this college is wonderful. My son is in his 2nd semester after struggling for a few years at regular colleges, he is very excited and on the Dean's List. Landmark takes a personal interest and teaches students how to learn with their disability, so they can take their knowledge and finish their 2nd 2 years at a standard college. It is AWESOME.
