Lamar Middle School sits quietly on a vast piece of land in the Heights section of the city of Laredo. It began its academic mission sixty seven years ago as the second junior high school in the Laredo Independent School District. The staff consisted of thirty-six people including teachers, a matron, and a secretary to the principal.

On the night of October 10, 1972, Lamar suffered a setback. The southern section of Lamar Junior High caught fire. The students made it known that it would take more than a fire to destroy their school spirit, and school classes were carried on.

 By 1974 the staff had grown to sixty-three teachers and other paraprofessional personnel. 

 In 1983, the system changed and junior highs became middle schools. Lamar Junior High then became Lamar Middle School, housing close to fifteen hundred students and over one hundred teachers and personnel.

 In August 2003, our administrators, faculty, staff, and students began a new academic year in our beautiful new school.

In August 2020, M. B. Lamar Middle School was thrust into the technology age by providing all students a Google Chromebook; thus making 2020 the first year Lamar was a 1:1 campus.

 LMS remains one of the finest middle schools in our community because of the dedication of the administration, faculty, staff and students.
