Lamar Success Center
Lamar Student Service Center
The mission of the Student Service Center is to remove any obstacle(s) that may be impeding the progress of any Lamar High School student. The ultimate goal is to assist students with getting back on track both academically and/or socially.
Through Communities in Schools (CIS), we provide on-site counseling with Licensed Therapists and/or Social Workers to any student that may be having a challenging time while at Lamar.
The Lamar Success Center (LSC) – The LSC is an extension of the classroom and provides one on one instructional support by a teacher. While in the LSC, students may request counseling services through CIS or any of our other social service agencies that partner with LHS. Students may request placement or be referred by parents, Deans, Administrators, and/or teachers. The duration of the assignment is flexible based on the needs of the individual student. Any accommodations or modifications that may be needed for a specific student are met through the Department of Special Services.
---The Bridge Program:The Bridge is an alternative classroom setting that is a mandatory 45-day successful day program for students who have incurred substance abuse-related infractions. The program seeks to get students on track academically and to educate them in reducing and/or eliminating high-risk behavior and acquiring better decision-making skills. Services include Academic Support and Counseling. Upon completion of the program, attendance at monthly meetings is encouraged.
---Wraparound Services: Our Wraparound Services Dept. is here for any Lamar student and their families. We have two Specialists that are available to assist with difficulties, that may come up within the home. They provide uniforms, food and assist with locating funding for utilities when necessary. If social services are needed, they will assist.
