Lamar Consolidated Independent School District Info

The Lamar Consolidated Independent School District, 346 square miles located in the western part of Fort Bend County, serves a number of growing new areas including Greatwood, Pecan Grove, Plantation Place, and Weston Lakes, as well as established communities of Richmond, Rosenberg and several other small towns. We are located 30 miles southwest of Houston, Texas.

A growing number of people are recognizing that the Lamar Schools are truly "Fort Bend County's Best-Kept Secret." LCISD prides itself on a rich history and an even brighter future. The district offers superior learning opportunities, combining excellent teachers, progressive educational theory and practice, and state-of-the- art technology with the unmistakable advantages of small schools and a hometown atmoshpere.
