The Lamar County School System recognizes that the children of Lamar County are our greatest assets. We will seek to provide our children with educational tools that will help them meet their needs in the future and help them become productive citizens in society.

Our faculty and staff pledge to give our students the best we can each day. Parental support is also a major part of the educational process. We need parental support to help us fulfill our mission. Our goal for ALL of our students is for them to leave us college and or career ready. We will strive to have a system that is challenging for our students and that also lays the groundwork for them to be successful in their chosen fields.

We look forward to working with each of you and we appreciate the opportunity to serve our children.
