    Lamar High School is an International Baccalaureate school whose goal is to provide the best opportunity for a diverse group of students to receive a rigorous, internationally accredited education, with a broad range of extracurricular activities, in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the IB is for students to be challenged academically, while also finding creative and physical fitness outlets, getting involved in the community around them, and developing a global view that takes the student beyond their immediate environment.

    Principal's Corner  

    #givingtuesday was a great success! Thank you to all who participated in helping us warm-up our new school. There are a few items left if you still wish to participate. We are grateful to have so many families that are committed to support our work and support the mission of public schools!
    Last Chance for Attendance Credit Appeals
    Please help us help your students.  Please review your child’s current schedule.  If there are any courses listed as a 99, this is a course your child has lost credit for when they originally took the course.  There are a number of reasons a student may lose credit and each scenario has a different route for gaining credit for the course.  When a student receives passing grades but has not met the requirement for sufficient attendance, you will have noticed an “NG” on the report card.  We have been working closely with students to clear historical “NGS” and help students recover classes instead of letting them stack up.
    If a student lost credit for a course during prior semesters because of his or her attendance but received passing grades for the course, they will be provided with information for attending our December 14th Attendance Credit Appeal.  This will be the final opportunity for students to attend a credit appeal for all prior semesters.  Any student who does not take advantage of this opportunity will be required to take the course over, in its entirety.  Some students may be reseated next school year, to repeat the course, and some students will be required to take the course online through Apex in our Grad Lab.  Students may be required to attend summer school.
    Please note, students have been provided more than 5 opportunities to attend credit appeal days between last June and our recent November date.  Unfortunately, there are still many students who have not taken advantage of this opportunity.  THIS WILL BE THE FINAL OPPORTUNITY. Students who are identified to attend credit appeal are expected to be at Lamar on time and stay the entire length of the credit appeal.  Students who are late will not be admitted. 
    If your child has 99s on his/her schedule and you have not spoken with an Academic Dean, please contact us immediately for any questions you may have.  Please remember that any remaining 99s will prevent a student from graduating on time.
    Not sure who your child’s Academic Dean is?
