School History

Mirabeau Buonaparte LamarThe first site of this school was 141 Lavaca Street, prior to its 1924 move to its present Mahncke Park location. The facility was closed as a regular elementary school in 1975 due to declining enrollment, and subsequently served disabled students. In the early 1980s the neighborhood underwent a resurgence and enough residents with school-aged children were able to convince SAISD Trustees to reopen Lamar as a regular elementary in the fall of 1984.

Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar (August 16, 1798 – December 19, 1859) was a Texas politician, poet, diplomat and soldier who was a leading Texas political figure during the Texas Republic era. He was the second President of the Republic of Texas after David G. Burnet (1836 as ad-interim president) and Sam Houston.
