Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have only experienced the Elementary and Primary schools in Lamar County, but my experience with both has been great. I love the community involvement they offer, I love the sense of tradition and local familiarity. I grew up in bigger towns & none of the teachers (much less administration), knew students they didn't teach. Not only do most of the staff know both my kids, they know me. I feel my kids are developing a strong foundation, and are safe (I love having the Sheriff department great them every morning). From what I've seen with other kids, the students that struggle are lacking parental involvement. All of the kids I know with active parents, are excellent students.

I think this school is GREAT!! To the parent who said (I am going to copy it) "I do feel that her teacher could do better with teaching her things like writting her name and counting .I know that coloring is good too but it seems to me that there is to much of that and not enough of practicing her writing her name .I feel she should be learning it at school .yet everyday she comes home with a back pack filled with color sheets which i am not saying aren't just as important .But it seems to me that i am being made to Teach her to spell and write her name .I put her in kindergarten to learn these things .Why should she go to school if i am the one teaching her ?" Maybe your daughter does the sheets during free center time like my children do (both in kindergarten also). Do you work with your child at home with her writing and spelling of her name? Yes they should learn at school, but the learning DOES NOT stop when they get home...

Our child began 5th grade at Lamar County after a terrible experience at a local private school. We are amazed at the passion that the staff and administration put into their work. There is a bright, positive atmosphere. With the wide range of students, the school is doing a great job.

This school could use a lot of improvement. I am very dissapointed with the education that my daughter is recieving. I think she does too many worksheets and not enough interactive learning. I think character education needs to be a part of the curriculum rather than overlooking it when children are horrible to each other. Overall, I am not impressed with the school at all.

I think the Primary school was much needed here .The school is been great so far my 5 year old is really enjoying her first year here in the kindergarten. I do feel that her teacher could do better with teaching her things like writting her name and counting .I know that coloring is good too but it seems to me that there is to much of that and not enough of practicing her writing her name .I feel she should be learning it at school .yet everyday she comes home with a back pack filled with color sheets which i am not saying aren't just as important .But it seems to me that i am being made to Teach her to spell and write her name .I put her in kindergarten to learn these things .Why should she go to school if i am the one teaching her ?

We love the new school,its so bright and colorful.Everyone is really nice there.Test Scores are really bad butI beleive they will be better and there working hard on this matter.Ms.Adams is the greatest person to deal with at the school. I do feel as Uniforms are not needed and we should worry more about reading and math before uniforms. Ms.Hitson is the greatest teacher at the school.
