My son was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma which is a bone cancer, last year in April and had to be home school during his treatments. After his treatments and surgery he went back to school in February to find out that he was very behind in his school work. The school counselors, teachers and principals were outstanding in making accommodations for time to get to class, and focusing on major class assignments. One teacher went over and beyond allowing my son to come to her class three times a day for instruction, make up math assignments and tests. Without the school counselor s careful orchestration of setting up a home school teacher, focusing on core subjects, having a second set of books for home and school my son may have repeated the eight grade. The school is not only committed to education but also to its student s personal growth and health. Great School.
I have two granddaughters attending Lamar. Before attending Lamar they were D and F students and now they are on the NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) because of teacher/guardian involvement. Parents you must be involved in your child's education. Lamar has a wonderful music department and very dedicated teachers. The teachers avail themselves before and after school for any child that needs or wants extra help. The school has a crime stoppers program where the students work with an Irving Police Officer to be eyes and ears.
I have a daughter who goes there and she loves her gt teachers. I have met them myself and they are a great help to her. She comes to tutoring and they help her as much as they can. I think that the two year excelled teachers are great.
