    "Fantastic Teachers, the IB program at this school is second to none and constantly ranked as one of the top schools in the nation. The rigor one face here prepares students not only for college, but far beyond that as we take what we learned from this school and apply it to the real world."

    "Lamar Academy is a small campus that is defined by its rigorous course work and integrated community of students. Lamar Academy offers International Baccalaureate courses in which students can become true leaders with the characteristics of: open-mindedness, integrity, inquiry, reflective, and problem-solvers. Additionally, Lamar Academy hosts a volleyball and football tournament where students find sponsors to pay for the event, and organize the event. Lamar Academy is also ranked ninth best high school in the nation, and is ranked seventh in Texas. Lamar Academy population of students is primarily composed of hispanics as it is located in the southern Texas city of McAllen, Texas."

    "I attend Lamar Academy as an IB student. I don't regret studying here, as I love so many things about it. As an IB student at Lamar Academy, I think that I receive a wonderful education, as it's not only a form advanced learning, but I sincerely feel that I'm actually learning because I need these skills to be a better and more well-rounded person and student, not just because "you need to know this for the test". Regarding the school community (not just IB), I'm happy because all the students, teachers, and staff are cool and kind, and we're trusting enough that the majority of us don't use locks on our lockers and we can purposefully or accidentally leave any items behind without any fear that someone will steal it. Lamar has the Options program too, in which students can learn at their own pace and graduate earlier. This is great too, because seniors from other schools transfer here to quickly earn credits they were not able to at their former school."

    "The academics offered at Lamar are amazing. The IB program is very rigorous and prepares you for college very well. The workload is heavy and the teachers can be tough but it's all for your own good and will prepare you greatly."
