Landmark School's mission is to enable young people with language-based learning disabilities to reach their full educational and social potential through an exemplary school program, outreach, diagnosis, and research. The school's new Diagnostic Center provides a critical link in that chain.

Formerly a dilapidated barn, the renovated building – with its added dormers, stair tower, and restored barn door – offers a calm and welcoming environment where clinicians and families can meet to assess each child's unique learning style. Newly created space on the third floor houses administrative offices for the entire school. This modern testing facility serves the special needs of Landmark's professional community while also sensitively preserving a small piece of this North Shore neighborhood's architectural history.
