From Landon School

Landon is an all-boys day school for grades 3-12 located on a 75-acre campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

Landon is built for boys. We want each student to bring his energy, goodness, ideas, humor, creativity, curiosity and intensity to every class, performance, project, and practice. The men and women of Landon who will be his teachers, coaches, and mentors will challenge him to bring it every day. And this commitment to him is why we are a national leader in boys' college preparatory education.

    Landon School is not only exceptional in sports and academics, but in arts and in character building. Despite the stereotype emplaced by students who attend other schools, Landon has some of the finest teachers, which don't simply teach your regular education, arts, and character building, but build bonds with you. This allows for all aspects of ones time at Landon to be enhanced. The character building portion of Landon is often overlooked, but when compared to other schools it becomes very apparent that Landon truly does strive to produce men of character and integrity, and they do a pretty good job at it too.

    I have loved every minute of my Landon experience thus far, and it saddens me greatly that I only have two years left on my ten year journey. The teachers and staff care about each individual student and work to prepare us and help us through our high school and soon, college lives. There is excellent school spirit and every student knows each other and the brotherhood and bonds between friends will last for life.
    Landon School gives your boy various opportunities to succeed. They stress excellence and perseverance in every facet of life ranging from media, studio, and performing arts, music, athletics, and overall ethics. There is a strong brotherhood at Landon that radiates from the common places. With the diverse student body, it is easy to see that all cultures are represented, and accepted by all students.
