    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  

    Last year you may remember that we made the switch in our curriculum to the new IB mathematics courses in 11th grade that would put a student on a two year SL or two year HL track.  This year we will be phasing in the similar trajectory with our science courses.  Students will select not only the area of science they wish to study but will also have the opportunity to take a two year SL track or a two year HL track beginning with 11th grade in the 2020-2021 school year.
     
    We are encouraging students to select the math and science courses that complement one another and support their areas of interest and future career goals.  These will be discussed with students and parents during student-led conferences to help students make informed choices as they move from our IB MYP Programme in 9th and 10th grade to our IB Diploma or IB Career-related Programme in 11th and 12th grade.
     
    You may wish to review the information provided about how to select a complementary math and science sequence.  IB Math Science Sequences 2020-21 1.9.20 FINAL.pdf
