I attended Lamar from Kindergarten through 12th Grade and wouldn't change a thing! Wonderful experience.....


Posted May 13, 2010

After graduating from college in TX, the NAVY moved my husband & I to Meridian, MS. After much research on various school review sites, I sent my resume to Lamar School in hopes that I would have the opportunity to teach at such a well talked about school. Teaching at Lamar School has been the best 2 years of my teaching career so far. I don't know if I'll ever find another school with such a family oriented faculty, incredible students & supportive parents. I really hope that the NAVY brings us back to Meridian, MS in the future so that my future children can have an opportunity to attend Lamar School and experience an outstanding education. Students at Lamar School graduate & head to college more then well prepared. Lamar is a school that has it all for students, parents, and teachers.

Lamar is an outstanding school. My child has been attending Lamar since kindergarten. He is now a Junior, and I have been delighted with the moral and intellectual education that he has received. The staff and teachers are very concerned with the total positive development of each student.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
