     Lamar High School is an International Baccalaureate school whose goal it is to provide the best opportunity for a diverse group of students to receive a rigorous, internationally accredited education, with a broad range of extracurricular activities, in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the IB is for students to be challenged academically, while also finding creative and physical fitness outlets, getting involved in the community around them, and developing a global view that takes the student beyond their immediate environment.

    Principal's Corner  

     
    This year we are implementing student-led conferences for every student.  Student-led conferences come in all forms but are designed for the student to lead the conversation about the work they are proud of and what they need help with.  This is not a traditional parent and teacher conference.  We need our students to own their wins and their challenges. 
     
    We will get more information out so that your student may arrange a time for his or her important people to come together and talk about the learning, and help make plans for the next step.
     
    Seniors
    When: Beginning in November
