Why Lamar CISD?

Located 30 minutes from downtown Houston and about an hour from the Gulf of Mexico, Lamar CISD offers the best of all worlds: access to the bright lights and warm beaches, but grounded in tradition and the warmth of a small town atmosphere.

Lamar CISD — now with more than 29,000 students and 39 campuses — is one of the fastest-growing school districts in Texas.

In 2015 the District—and every single campus—achieved the highest ranking possible as part of the Texas Education Agency’s accountability system: Met Standard! Plus, our campuses earned 37 Distinction Designations.

We offer progressive educational theory and practice, a state of the art technology plan, unparalleled community support and the advantages of small schools and a hometown atmosphere.
