The academic success of every student in the La Marque Independent School District is extremely important to the members of the LMISD family. Our children receive the best education when dedicated parents and teachers work as a team. It is the parents’ support, involvement and commitment to education as well as a teacher’s ability to impart the necessary knowledge and skills in children that inspire them to do their absolute best. Student daily attendance and arrival to school on time are key components to a child’s academic success. It is the expectation of La Marque ISD that all students are “on time and present in every period of every day” and that they take advantage of the learning opportunities provided by our top-notched group of teaching professionals that have committed themselves to the achievement and success of all students.
