Westmark School is a creative and supportive college preparatory school dedicated to educating, empowering, and celebrating students with distinct learning styles, providing the tools necessary to achieve successful and fulfilling futures. In 1983, Landmark School of Massachusetts opened Landmark West in Culver City as a west coast extension of their school. The Simms/Mann family played a major role in founding and growing the school, championing support for students with learning differences for several decades.



Desired Impact

The Foundation is aligned with Westmark’s mission to transform the lives of students with language-based learning differences like dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. The establishment of Landmark West in 1983 represented the Simms/Mann family’s vision to give the next generation a more supportive and adaptive learning environment: instilling confidence, hope, and self-efficacy in place of the doubt that may have existed within a more generic educational system.
