Lamar Elementary School 5

Absolutely amazing! I can not say enough good things about the school and the new direction it has taken. Mr. Sparks and the partnership with Trinity University has taken an already great school to an even higher level. The combination of highly experienced teachers and new innovative teachers is exactly what we want for our children. Stepping on campus feels like coming home. There is a strong sense of family due to the small size and huge hearts of the faculty and staff. We are forever grateful for the tuition based Pre K program, which allows our children to start sooner, rather than later, at their neighborhood school. The small class size, roughly 14 in Kinder, paired with one teacher, and one intern from Trinity University, provides a secure and successful learning environment for our children. LOVE LAMAR!!!

The director and the all staff is very committed. They are always listening to you as a parent and show interest in the kids,they just staretd a student counsil and they are working on a school garden. The school is trying to work on a system of a mentor for each student. They also have parnership with some universities, museums, Botanical garden, slow food and more. My kid is really happy and his teacher is amazing.

Every child is important to the teachers at Lamar Elementary School. Every child is excitedly reaching their potential everyday, and this learning experience is a team effort made by all, students, parents and teachers alike. The teachers present new knowledge as if it is a new experience. The children are continually amazed about how much there is to learn, but what amazes them most is that they are the most important part of it all.

Great class size, very caring staff. Wish they had more access to outside tutors/mentors in math and science.

Great teachers, and students are good kids. Some of the parents of these kids are scary though. No music program, but that's the districts fault. The Principal and teachers couldn't be better.

Lamar elementary is a great school. Providing children with small class sizes, allowing for more one on one with students. The staff and faculty are all great and caring. I feel safe and comfortable leaving my children at lamar to grow in their education while I go on to work.
