    This week I want to offer some guidance on selecting a math and science pathway that complements your college and career plans. Knowing what you might want to do helps in planning that path. If you don’t know what you want to study in college, taking the most rigorous mathematics sequence that you can be successful with is the key.

     

    Career, 2-year college or 4-year college programs after HS

    Students on a standard Lamar graduation plan that want options for 2-year and 4-year college admission or who plan to move into career after graduation, will generally take Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and then Statistics while here at Lamar.

     

    4-year college programs after HS

    Students who are taking a pathway for the best chance admission to a 4-year college will generally complete 5-6 years of math studies between middle school and high school. So, what does that look like? For Lamar students, that would include Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and then an IB Math of your choice.

    Talking with your Academic Dean during the Student Led Conference is a great way to get more information and talk through the best path for you. We have put together an easy guide to help you in making the decisions around math and science coursework for 11th and 12th grade. Check it out here.

  • Clear Bag Policy

    Clear Bag Policy

    Starting August 22, 2022, all students will be required to use a clear back on campus. Some of you may be applauding the move, while I imagine there are others who find this to be an overreach.  I would like to provide you with the reasoning.

    Lamar believes in big school opportunities and a small school feel. To make this mission possible we split our student body into neighborhoods that allow each Assistant Principal and Academic Dean to work with a small group of students.

    New Learning Management System : Canvas

    HISD is implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS) to replace the HUB this school year with Canvas. Canvas will be used across the district to help students learn and grow. With any changes, we know there can be stress about learning a new tool. We have put together some helpful tip videos to ease the transition.
