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 27,000 students and 38 campuses – is the fastest-growing school district in Fort Bend County.
In 2013, the District and all of its campuses achieved the highest ranking possible as part of the Texas Education Agency’s accountability system – Met Standard! Lamar CISD is the largest Houston area school district to meet the federal No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standards. Plus, it added yet another National Blue Ribbon School – Velasquez Elementary – marking the third National Blue Ribbon School in 10 years.
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.
