Lamar High School is great! For a small town they offer a lot! They have integrated college classes which is great for advance students. Lamar also has a wing of the school for vocational classes. There are many clubs and activities to be involved in. It being a small school, you know everyone in your class and the teachers are very approachable and always willing to help you succeed. Go tigers!

Some of my favorite things about LHS include the teachers, coaches, and facilities. Our teachers are very kind and love to get to know the students. The coaches know how to get athletes to succeed and do everything they can to make that happen. Also, the facilities at Lamar are awesome. We recently built a top of the line weight room/fitness lab that is open to the entire school.

If I were to change one thing, it would be to support the VoTech more, and talk students into getting in a class where they learn life long skills, and get the opportunity to work with their hands. In our world today, there is a desperate need for Blue Collar workers, and students should be encouraged to pursue these jobs.
Lamar High School is home to teachers that care for the students and try to help their students succeed in anything they want. The School building it's self is very simple to navigate and easy to find your classes. Lamar Athletics are known around the the state, since 2011 Boys track and field has won 2 state championship, Boys cross country has won 3 state championships and the footaball program won 7 state championships in a row and are in the missouri sports hall of fame. This school will help both academically and athleticaly.
