Lamar County Schools Reviews

We have experience Lamar county primary school, elementary school, and middle school. Our experiences in all of the schools have been wonderful! Both of our kids have been involved and are thriving academically. I love the feeling they provide in a small town, where the teachers and administrators know who my kids are by name and not just another student. Their lesson plans have been a line with or ahead of the surrounding counties. Both of my children have exceeded state wide expectations on testing, and I attribute that to having wonderful teachers and parental involvement.

Lamar county Schools have their ups and downs. The High School is really old and is in desperate need of remodel, however the classes below mine are said to get a new school in the near future. I love all the teachers but, there is very little academic opportunity (AP classes) which is why much of the senior class is dual enrolled at a local college. It is diverse and filled with great students, and vary rarely do I see fights or any signs of bullying. There are also many clubs or sports to join, however the clubs don't actively do much of anything but one community service event if that. I love being at this school, but they would benefit from a new school and really concentrating on providing as many worth while opportunities as possible.
Lamar County School systems, aren't the best, but at the same time they aren't the worst. The teachers here actually care about students grades and are willing to help out. The sports here aren't that good, but some sports excel ever season. If I had to rate the school on a scale 1 to 10, I would rate it a 7.
