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 30,000 students and 39 campuses—is one of the fastest-growing school districts in Texas.
In 2016, the District—and every single campus—achieved the highest ranking possible as part of the Texas Education Agency's accountability system: Met Standard! Plus, The Texas Education Agency awarded 75 Distinction Designations to Lamar CISD as part of the agency's accountability system. This more than doubles the 37 Distinction Designations earned by Lamar CISD in 2015.
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.
