At Lamar Elementary, we believe that every student can achieve whatever they set their heart and mind to, and it is our responsibility to position them for success in school and in life. We provide students with a rounded educational experience focused on developing the social, emotional, and academic skills of every child. Our staff believes that is our mission to meet the varied and unique needs of every child every day. Our class curriculum focuses on project-based learning, social-emotional learning, bilingual education/dual language (starting in kindergarten), and an extended school year. These programs develop the belief that we cannot just teach curriculum at our school, we must customize a school experience for all students.

  • Civic engagement and social-emotional learning focus with a dual-language program
  • Project-based learning through an extended school year in partnership with local institutions such as the San Antonio Museum of Art
  • Trinity University professional development laboratory school

San Antonio ISD is hosting virtual and in-person Parent Information Sessions every month! These are interactive, family conversations that help you understand what Choice Schools & Magnet Programs are and how to gain admission. We share important dates and deadlines, tips on how to apply, and resources to learn more. See dates, times, and locations of all District Info Sessions here.

  • Virtual Sessions: Join by tuning in to our live broadcast on the SAISD Choice Schools & Programs Facebook page. Parents will be able to post questions directly in the comments during the presentations, and we’ll answer in real time! Questions may also be sent ahead of time by direct message through the Facebook page, or by email to
  • In-Person Sessions: No sign-up is needed. These sessions take place at our neighborhood high schools, so parking is free. To make sure seating can remain socially distanced, we advise just 1 parent and 1 child per family attend each event. *Masks are required due to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
