North Lamar Independent School District Reviews
Teachers are very personable and willing to make great efforts to deepen understanding in multiple subjects! These are the best teachers east Texas has to offer, and North Lamar is successful in everything they pursue.
Majority of the teachers dont care about the students at all. Now that ive entered college and talked with others about their high school experience ive realized how bad North Lamar is. No college readiness whatsoever. No help with finding colleges or encouraging growth. It's a decent environment to grow up in once you find your "group". But i feel so far behind on an academic level in college. Overall, i would not recommend this school if you are looking to take your education to higher levels. If intrested in taking your life the agricultural route, i would definitely recommend.
The best part about attending North Lamar High school is participating in UI L events. Our different teams have competed at and won state championships several times. However, the administration continually decides to cut the budgets on those activities and give more to the worst team: the football team. Aside from extracurricular activities, the academics are terrible. The teachers are paid next to nothing which means it is very difficult to find qualified teachers willing to work for the school. Out of the entire district, I can count on one hand the number of good teachers we have. The only reason I have not moved to the other district in Paris is because I have friends at North Lamar that I don't want to leave.
