Do not attend this school for music. The orchestra director is not skilled and places students with lots of experience with those that have little to no experience. My daughter was bored and asked to move, was faced with nothing but obstruction.
My son is currently a 7th grader in the orchestra strand of the Lamar FAA and having a stellar experience. Ms. Kizer, the orchestra director, is extremely talented but also caring, committed, and sensitive to the needs and abilities of each child.
We moved from India in March 2016. We took admission for our child in 7th grade.The school supported us in every possible way to get our child accustomed in the new pattern of study here. The teachers have always helped my child whenever she needed support.

My daughter had a wonderful experience at Lamar. She transferred in her 7th grade year from a comparatively rigorous magnet program in 6th grade, into the visual arts strand at Lamar Fine Arts Academy.
Lamar has come a long way in a short period of time. The teachers, the principal and the staff work hard to create a safe, active learning environment for every student there. My son is like most sixth graders. He would rather spend time with his friends than in a classroom.
