My son is going to be new this 2012/2013 school year. I went as a pre-teen and I have no bad words as of now. I truly believe it's going to be a perfect fit for my son.

I am the parent of a 6th grade student at Lamar Middle School. I am hoping my comment will help any parents who may be relocating to the TISD school district. I strongly recommend finding another school system to enroll your child in. Since relocating to Temple a year ago it has been a complete nightmare for my child and myself here. The amount of bullying by students and staff at Lamar is completely horrible. The school has failed the state testing and is below average. The kids at lamar have no respect for anyone including the staff, and the basic belief there is you can stay out of trouble if you just ignore the bullying and whatever you do don't fight back against the bullying or speak up against it or you will be suspended. This school is blind to the needs of their children and turn a blind eye to the problems there. They think if they ignore it, it will go away. No amount of talking to the staff does any good. My child is in the National Honor Role Society and is a Lone Star State Scholar yet hates going to school because he knows what the day will hold for him there. Please if you are thinking of relocating, Do Not Relocate To The TISD School District!
