Lamar High School Reviews
Lamar is a good school. Overall it has been one of the top best high schools in Arlington TX since the '70s/'80s. They offer a lot of help and the teachers are very reachable for any questions or help with your child, Lamar also offers a lot of great activities for your child to be involved in. My son is in all AP classes and is doing well but better with a lot of help from his teacher. He is currently in track soccer and played football. He really enjoys school and he's got a really nice and busy schedule. As long as you keep them busy everything turns out good. Princess provence is also one of the best.
DOes a great job with the student population they have to work with. Many parents don't even know what grade their kid is in. They expect the teachers to work miracles when the parents are all but absent from their lives. Not enough parent volunteers. Fairly low socioeconomic demographic, but many teachers go the extra mile--with little thanks, to fill in the gaps for kids that don't get much support at home.
