Open Quote My child had to change schools at the end of his third grade year because his elementary school was closed. I was very nervous for him because he's autistic and doesn't do well with change. This move turned out to be the biggest blessing for our family. Lamar has a structured learning class for autistic students that supports him as he continues to be full inclusion in the regular classroom The campus also uses a positive behavior intervention system that recognizes good behavior.

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.
