    Our Campus Today 

    Lamar Elementary was built in 1955.  Our school has grown through the years as school boundaries have changed.  At the beginning Lamar had grades 1 - 6.  6th grade went to middle school in the 1997 - 98 school year.   All of kindergarten students in HCISD went to Lamar for the 1st two years before other schools added their own Kinder classes. 

     Today Lamar Elementary has grades PreK - 5th. In 2013 - 2014 there were 656 students and 73 staff.
    It is the purpose and mission of Lamar Elementary School to provide all of its students with the educational program which will allow them to develop to their full potential intellectually, physically, and socially in order to be responsible citizens and contributing members of society.
