Thank you for your interest in Lamar High School! Lamar offers several transfer options for students who do not live in our attendance zone. All transfers to Lamar High School are based on space availability.
The transfer application is online and can be completed here: https://www.houstonisd.org/Page/120696
Please read the information on the HISD website regarding dates and the process before completing an application.
If you are applying for a transfer through one of our Career and Technical Education Pathways you will need to note the pathway on the transfer application. Please use the specific wording below when completing your application. You can apply for multiple pathways but will need to complete a separate application for each.
Our pathways include:
Agriculture (Animal Science)
Agriculture (Plant Science/Horticulture)
Hospitality & Tourism (Culinary Arts)
Human Services (Child Development)
Once you have completed an application for transfer you will need to submit your child’s most recent report card as well as standardized test scores (STAAR, Iowa, ERB, Stanford etc.) from the 2017-2018 school year to firstname.lastname@example.org. These documents must be submitted within three days of your application. Please use your child’s name in the subject line of the email.
Once you have submitted your application you will receive emails keeping you updated on your child’s status. If your child is approved for the requested transfer by Lamar High School, you will need to wait for notification of final approval by the HISD Office of School Choice before you complete the enrollment process at Lamar.
Students will only be approved for ONE transfer for the 2019-2020 school year. If you accept a transfer to another campus you WILL NOT receive final approval from the HISD Office of School Choice for another transfer.
