Lamar Elementary School 1

I am a parent of three children at Lamar Elementary I have been a parent at this school for 8 years. In those 8 years the school has gotten worse. The administration has gotten out of control and the district does not care or even care to visit to see what is happening.I have 2 older children that attended Lamar years before this and the school was a great place to be at and learn with pride. As far as academically a parent wrote in their review that they are taught to memorize and that is exactly what is taught to memorize the test in this case the STARR. So, the scores are high but ask the children basic things in writting, grammar,and social studies outside the box. The children cannot answer unless it is in the form of the dittos of the test questions. This is sad. Parents are not respected and are not allowed in anyway or manner to help with the school they are not invited to any interact at events the children have. The school administration and staff are unfriendly, defensive, and sarcastic they are not trained in people skills,management skills or problem solving skills. Overall I am completely disatisfied with my childrens school and hope soon for new administration.

I would like to know where the money is going, because they are selling popcorn and popcycles, that money is suppost to go to PTA but there is no PTA. SO WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING? TEA AND ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE need to INVESTIGATE LAMAR ES FOR MANIPULATION OF OUR KIDS GRADES. THE PRINCIPAL AND EVERYBODY ELSE NEED TO TAKE CLASSES OF HOW TO TREAT AND RESPECT OUR KIDS. ALSO RESPECT PARENTS AND CHILDREN,NOT RETALIATING AGAIST THEM AND/OR THREATENING US AND/OR OUR KIDS. EASY, WE NEED A NEW PRINCIPAL, ASST. PRINCIPAL, COUNSELOR, DIAGNOSTICIAN AND SOME TEACHERS. WE NEED PEOPLE THAT ARE WILLING TO TEACH, NOT TO HAVE A SEAT AND DESTROY OUR SCHOOL AND OUR KIDS. IF IT WOULD BE ME, I WOULD GRADE IT 0 (ZERO). AT LEAST THE PRINCIPAL FROM PAUL MORENO DIDN'T TAKE ANYTHING AGAIST OUR KIDS.

It needs work because its a low-income public school, but the teachers and kids work hard.

I have worked at this school as a sustitute teacher and everyone seems very friendly. They really care for students' learning and welcome any suggestion.

The entire staff, from the crossing guard to the principa, seem to recognize everyone and know which child belongs to you.
