Lamar is a fabulous example of the word "community." We are a small town, which means everyone knows everyone. Collectively, this is good. Students look out for each other, help each other and truly care about each other. We've won a RECORD 7 STRAIGHT state football championships. The atmosphere our community brings to our post-season games rivals many colleges. It is awesome!

small town community, very close. great teachers staff. small class sizes, a little behind in technology and keeping students on the cutting edge. very good votech department, lots great class in votech that help you prepare for careers. wide variety of opportunities in A plus scholarships for local colleges and trade schools. Older buildings and school classes not run down by any means but old construction, the outside of the building could use a facelift and the playgrounds for the small children is in need of updating and improving.
Lamar R-1 School District is as pretty average as any other school around. They focus around academics and sports. Lamar Missouri is known for winning 7 football State games. The teachers their are willing to help students achieve in high school and prepare us for college.
