    "My son will graduate this year from Lamar I'm truly looking forward to it. He has been going to this school for three years and hasn't enjoyed it at all, he has been bullied and nothing gets done he has gone thru depressions because of this, I think the kids are very cruel.. I do agree though that it has some wonderful teachers that do care in some way.."

    "I just graduated from Curry in the I.B program and can NOT say enough good things about this school. The best teachers (especially Mrs.Menendez,Mr.Lizcano,Mrs.Suarez,and Mr.Anduray) I have ever had in all my school years (I have been in six schools) have been here. I love the program as it pushes you to succeed and thus only the best can go through.And yes,there are rewards,but only for the best kids.For example,there are Principal Honor Roll Breakfasts,field trips,ceremonies,field day,trophies, dinners,and so many more.The teachers really prepare you for the state tests and(though you may complain about the work at first) will always give you the best of scores.The number one thing you should know if you want to enter I.B is: DO NOT PROCRASTINATE Trust me,all of the work you have done will pay in the future.You will make friends that will last a lifetime and if you are in the I.B you will remain with the same group of kids for three years and most likely all of you will go on to Ferguson, too. The new I.B coordinator is great and truly takes the best out of students. Lots of security in the school, great library, great kids (at least in the I.B program), just great, great, great!"

    "My daughter is finishing 7th grade in the IB program. We decided to put her in the IB program because of a recommendation from her elementary teacher. I think the program is overrated and the school is just average. Nothing great. She tells me she has only had 1 teacher she really liked in 6th grade. The other teachers overload her with homework pretty much every school night and on weekends. She does an average of 3-4 hours of homework a night after being in school for 7 hours a day. I don't necessarily think that's the best way to teach. It takes the joy out of learning and it stresses the kids out to the point of depression. She tells me the other kids are mean, they're probably stressed out and depressed as well. She doesn't have time for extracurricular activities due to the heavy workload. And there is no reward from the school for all their hard work and effort. I don't plan on keeping her in IB for high school. In my opinion this program isn't really worth all the effort."

    "Im a student here. Currently entering 8Th grade. I've been reading the reviews and their are many lies but many truths. The office staff does have an attitude but overall they get the things done. There are a few fights but you cant blame the school for that. I do the think the school is strict. They do have many after school activities and PTSA for the parents. The teachers are great and teach very well. I use to be in classes were kids weren't at the same level as me and here they have 3 academic levels so if your not regular and not gifted there's still something for you advanced. I truthfully love this school. Parents if your having doubts about the school, don't because this is a perfect school."
