2021-2022 Rising 9th Grade Course Selection
Welcome Future Texans!
We are so excited that you have chosen Lamar and we can't wait to welcome you to the Lamar family next August. Now that you have made the decision to attend Lamar your next step is to choose your 9th grade courses! While we cannot meet with you in person this year we have tried to provide as much information as possible so that you feel confident about the choices you are making. If you are waiting for acceptance notification from another school, please do not complete the Lamar course selection yet.
Step 1: Report Card
Find your Cycle 2 or Cycle 3 8th grade report card and have it available in a PDF format. Your report card will help you determine which Math, Science, and Foreign Language courses to select. You will also need to upload your report card for an Academic Dean to review. PLEASE NOTE: Lamar does NOT have access to student records if the student is not enrolled on the Lamar campus. If you are enrolled in an HISD school you will need to upload the report card!
Step 2: Review Helpful Information
The links below will provide information about our IB Programs, CTE Programs, and the levels of rigor we offer in our core courses.

Step 3: Course Descriptions
Download or open our course descriptions to use as a reference when making your selections.
Step 4: Watch the Video Instructions
Watch the video below which will guide you through the course selection form.
Step 5: Complete the Course Selection Form
Open the course selection form and make your choices!
Step 6: Upload/Email Your Report Card
Once you complete the form you will be asked to upload your most recent 8th grade report card. We cannot complete your course selection request without your report card and we do not have access to student records who are not currently enrolled on our campus. If you choose to upload the form you will be asked to sign into Google. If you do not have a Google account or if you cannot log in you should email the report card to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email should include the student's name, date of birth, and HISD ID number if applicable.
Step 7: Select "Send me a copy of my responses"
This will serve as confirmation of your selections. Lamar will mail a course verification later in the summer with instructions for making changes at that time.
If your child is desingated 504 or Special Education and you have questions you can contact our coordinators.
