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.
Last year at this time we could not have imagined what this year would be like. I am so proud of the Lamar community – students, faculty and staff, parents and our community supporters. Every success this year has been a result of persistence, determination and an incredible effort to work together. Every stumble has been an opportunity for us to prove to ourselves that getting up is the measure of resilience that gets us closer to success.
Thank you for your support of Lamar High School, your trust in the adults on campus who work so hard to shepherd your children toward adulthood, and for the many hours of time given by our volunteers to grow and strengthen this community.
Whether you are looking for adventure or rest (or maybe a little of both), I wish you the best this summer. We look forward to welcoming our Texans back in August and wish our graduates a smooth transition to college or the workforce.
This summer we will offer virtual and in-person summer school. There are really three types of summer school options for students, Original Credit (student has never taken the course), IBDP Summer School (for students who are IB Diploma Candidates but did not take Algebra 1 in middle school), and Credit Recovery (for students who were previously seated in the course but did not earn credit).
