Mission / Vision / History
Our HistoryIn 1983, Landmark School of Massachusetts opened Landmark West in Culver City as a west coast extension of their school. The Landmark Foundation purchased the Encino campus in 1994. In the fall of 1997, Landmark School was purchased by a non-profit corporation, Learning with a Difference, Inc. to provide local control over the development and implementation of the program. These leaders renamed the school Westmark. Throughout its various incarnations over the last 30 plus years, the basic mission and educational philosophy of Westmark has remained the same:
to enable students and parents who live with language-based learning differences to successfully pursue their dreams.
