Open Quote Lamar is not as bad as these reviews say. The children that go there would never want to leave willingly. So shouldn't we care about our children's feeling about the school more than these reporters who are doing this to get money? Close Quote

Open Quote I love this neighborhood school. There are active parents, excellent teachers, strong pre-AP classes, and the new principal is strengthening the curriculum to align it with the most difficult classes McCallum offers, including offering Algebra I for advanced 7th and 8th grade students. The Fine Arts classes are outstanding and there is a lot of excitement with the new Fine Arts Academy. Most importantly, my son enjoys school and is learning a lot. I feel that he is being amply prepared for high school and college. Close Quote

Open Quote I went to Lamar Middle School for my 6-8 grade years. I think this is a terrific school, even though it may have it's flaws but not every school is perfect. The teachers there do know what they're talking about and are excellent with children. The Fine Arts program there is AMAZING. In fact, Lamar is now a Fine Arts Academy. But I must say, the people in the front office are just horrible. They seem to loose everything. But overall Lamar is still a pretty awesome school with some awesome teachers and programs.

Open Quote The 8th grade algebra class is an important class for any
middle school. A middle school is obligated to put its best effort
for this class. This school year , 2008-2009, Lamar's algebra class is at best poor.
I think that the principal needs to be held accountable in this case.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
