    Mission Statement


    M. B. Lamar High School encourages ALL students to be inquiring and knowledgeable individuals who can achieve their highest potential within an atmosphere of shared responsibility, academic challenge, intercultural understanding, and mutual respect.



    The vision of Lamar High School is to provide a quality education in a safe, student-centered learning environment that facilitates high-quality educational opportunities for every student. Both faculty and staff will generate teaching and learning that supports critical thinking, high achievement, ethical behavior, and respect for intercultural diversity. Leadership, service, and positive character traits will be nurtured by and for all. Teachers, administrators, staff, students, and parents alike are charged with preparing each student to be productive citizens in a technological and global society.


    Principal's Corner


    District Leadership is launching a new Defined Autonomy System next school year. This allows our District to maintain many of the decentralized decision making at the campus level, while clearly defining the decisions that will be made by central administration. Next week I will be providing you with a recorded video presentation to give you more information.

    Clear Bag Policy

    Starting August 22, 2022, all students will be required to use a clear back on campus. Some of you may be applauding the move, while I imagine there are others who find this to be an overreach.  I would like to provide you with the reasoning.
