Student Exchange Programs
Every year Lamar participates in exchange programs with other partner schools, as well as hosting students from other countries living with families in our community.For over ten years, Lamar High School has been exchanging students, teachers, ideas, and passion for learning with Dalian 24, a secondary school located in the city of Dalian, China. Lamar hosts several students and teachers from Dalian. In exchanging ideas and perspectives on the world, education, and family, the students of both schools reinforce the idea of being lifelong learners and worldly friendships. The invaluable time spent with the students is one of the highlights of the year and has proven to be the highlight of students lives.Dalian students are given a list of arranged activities from field trips, group dinners, and of course class time here at Lamar. A lot of effort is made to make students feel as comfortable as possible while they are so far from home, from their parents, and from their daily routine. It's always a huge success for all involved. Each summer, Lamar invites students to go on a two week trip to China to visit Dalian and several other major cities. This exchange of cultures is one of the most enriching programs at Lamar High School.
