Awesome friends, great classes, caring teachers, ok food--I've been a Trojan all my life and will continue to be too.
This school has an awesome group of dedicated staff. Each year, it gets even better.
My teachers care about ME. It's not whether or not I pass or fail, its whether or not I'm a good person. Because of them, I want to succeed. Because of them, I know how to succeed. Because of them, I will teach others to succeed. You're the best: Turner, Filp, Williams, Mitchell, McCauley, and the rest.
this school would definitely be one of my greatest choices as a school for my children. although, i think the high school should be less strict on the dress code with the collar shirts, especially since they are very irritating and uncomfortable. but in other words, i think the school is great:)
It has a progessiver adminiatration and will evolve into a great academic environment.
i believe the lamar county school system is great overall. i am very well informed about my students progress and behavior.
New parent of 9th grader...great start to awesome year. Open House with a picnic...I've never seen that. Friendly teachers and helpful staff too.
I have been coming to lamar County Schools my entire life. Lamar has had some issues in its school systems but things are becoming much better........... Im proud to be a Trojan!!
The schools are getting better every year as we get better administration & faculty in general. Scores are going up. I have had 3 children graduate from LCCHS with honors and all went onto good colleges. The current graduating class is full of many students who have already been accepted to top colleges many with academic scholarships. (UGA, GA Tech, Wake Forest, GA Southern the list goes on and on - and that is just this year's graduating class) If your child is doing poorly in this school system you may want to stop blaming every one else and take a look in the mirror. I noticed for years when I went to the Open House & Parent nights there weren't many people there. It is the school's job to offer your child a good quality education it is the parents job to be sure your child takes advantage of it.
This school needs a lot of improvement. things have gotten even worse with the new principal. These teachers can't control their students, but it's not entirely their fault. The disruptive students are sent to administration, the ISS or OSS doesn't do any good. They just come back and disrupt class again. Its miserable to try and learn with some teachers, and like one student had stated earlier, we're assigned work that's graded and are expected to learn it ourselves. The students who want to learn are too overwhelmed, and the students who are only there because they have to be just don't even bother with the assignment in the first place.
As a teacher, I can say that we DO care about our students. However, we try to teach our students the importance of following guidelines, as well. Why fight dress code issues? Simple. We don't enjoy seeing underwear (or lack of) or cleavage. If and when parents help us by teaching children to be respectful and responsible, we can spend more time in the classroom on academics. We desperately need parents to help us by teaching their kids to take responsibility for their actions rather than simply blaming others. After all, 'I wasn't the only one,' is not an excuse that we want future leaders to use. Before you criticize, volunteer. We have MANY excellent students who excel in the classroom and who demonstrate high moral integrity.
The school is not turning out college ready students. Only 75 students took the SAT last year and did poorly. That was 'the cream of the crop' More emphasis on dress code than what is going on in the classroom. Was in hopes with new administration that it would improve but to date only more dress code violations are even more the main focus. The teachers do not use the online program for communication to parents nor with posted assignments. They are in the phase of having to offer school choice but there isn't any counties that will take the students. STUCK with the school.
Teachers don't have control in the class rooms. Children are very rude, have no respect. However the principles are strict on dress code but thats about it. The school isnt very bright and 'clean' most teachers don't teach. But there are however some that do. Very few though
I was in the LC school system for 7 years and i have a harsh review for this system. The teachers don't take enough time to help students learn what they have to learn. They give them assignments in class and just expect them to know how to do it. they need more teachers that actually have a love for teaching and love for their students. I know school isn't suppose to be a fun house , but you have to make it interesting for more students to really be involved. This dress code is a total joke. I hated it and think thats all that the teachers cared about. Now i will say that the pricipal i had at the time was a great one , but like i said they need better teachers.
The staff is either overly strict or lacking in productiveness. The grading and prcedures are all disorganized. I could complain all day. I'd advise you find another school district.
I have the opportunity to make my comments from the perspective of both a parent and a teacher in the lamar county system. My children have flourished in this system. They have attended lamar county schools since day one of kindergarten and are now in the high school. I have always had positive experiences with each and every teacher and can not thank them enough. I have have always been treated with kindness and respect by the faculty and staff at each of the schools. My questions have always been answered and my children have always been treated as individuals. They are both in honors classes. I attribute this to the well educated teachers and to the fact that my husband and I are very active in their education. It is the partnership between parents and educators that helps to form a solid foundation for a child's learning experience.
I have gone to school in Lamar County my entire life and I believe that Lamar County's schools, athough having some difficulties these past few years,are great schools. I do belive that new, more qualified, teachers need to be hired, but for the most part we do have a wide variety of great teachers who are willing to help any student. Dress code doesn't qualify as a problem to me, at least not at the High school level but in Middle school the admnistration is way to strict. Over all our schools have the right dicipline ideas and grat leadership with our new principle.
Teachers and Administration are more worried about what the student is wearing than what they are learning, the teachers teach the EOCT, this is all they worry about the students knowing, Getting information out of a teacher is almost impossible, unless it is something they want. I have just come from the school for extend year courses (summer school) the lunch room was packed. Parents and students had both been told they were going to pass until the report cards came out. The assistant Princple does not know what's going on and has an attitude. Think before moving your child into this system. We have way to many children left behind.
I graduated LCCHS in '04. I loved going to school there, and the teachers and atmosphere were wonderful. Sure there have been problems, but all schools have their ups and downs. I didn't even mind the dress code because my friends couldn't care less what I wore. I played a lot of sports, and other extracurricular activities, and had more fun than anything. The education that I received has gotten me where I needed to go, and that's what matters. LC's a great school, and it doesn't deserve so many people's harsh opinions.
I too am a student. I was in the Lamar Co. school system for 8 years. It was a great experience until Middle School. When I entered the high school everything fell apart. Those two years were some of the most horrendous years in my educational career. I'm pleased to say that I am now finishing my Junior year at Upson-Lee. We have a dress code but it is nothing compared to LC. Students dress appropriately and show respect to another along with the staff. I can honestly say that the attitude i have witnessed this first year at Upson-Lee has made me feel like I grew up with these people and my grades are some of the best in my class.
