• About Lamarque

    Lamarque receives Five Star Award 
    The Five Star Award honors schools with exemplary programs that fully integrate comprehensive community involvement toward student achievement through community and business partnerships, family involvement, volunteerism, student community service efforts and initiatives of the school’s advisory council, which is made up of parents and other community members as well as school staff.

    In addition to recognizing outstanding schools, the Five Star Award also serves as an assessment tool for schools to measure the success of their programs and identifies schools with programs that serve as models for other schools.  To qualify for this award, a school must first have a “C” grade or above and meet Golden School Award eligibility requirements.
