By far the best in the County.

No other should be given consideration if you love your child.

It really doesn't make a difference which school you want to go to. To be able to attend Chsum, you have to live in the district. That can change a little when they get to Jr. High or High School because they will take a few transfers then but in the lower grades, you can forget it unless you are employed by the district. If you are trying to transfer, your child must not be a discipline problem at their current school and they must have passed all TAKS tests with at least a score of 2200 - 21oo is passing. Check it out and you will see that requirment of transfer requests. I would choose Paris over North Lamar also . The superintendent at North Lamar is a control freak and a complete JACKASS!

Chisum is by far the best school. Most of my grandchildren go there. As far as being racial a would say that all the children are treated equal as far as the racial issue. All the kids seem to get along and I haven't heard of any teachers or staff being racial.

Chism is what N. Lamar was when it was built and before it grew so much. I'd send my kids to Chism if I had small ones again. Paris ISD is great for Kdg.-3rd for solid basics.

i go to chisum and it is by-far the best school there is, they make sure we have the quality stuff we need such as new computers, new equipment, and anything else. it is , however , very very hard to get into chisum if you do not live in the district, you have to have good records. i dont know where ya'll are getting that we are 'racial' but we make jokes. thats it. all the black kids that go to our school are treated fair and equally. THANK YOU!

I went to chisum. It can get pretty racial over there. If you want your kids to be treated fairly and equally though, it won't happen. Sexism and racism runs deep in the teachers and admin out there. If you're a white male out there and you get in trouble over anything to do with a girl or a person of different race, YOU BET YOU'RE GONNA BE IN TROUBLE. Hopefully they've got some new people out there since I went. Also, chisum is pretty cliqueish, but not as much as the bigger schools.

I transferred my daughter there in the 6th grade. We loved it. Due to circumstances in the 10th grade had to transfer at the end of the year to NL. B/C of my job & shift, she had to ride the bus. She hated leaving Chisum & was depressed for a while but soon fit in at NL. In elem went to Paris & hated it except 1/2 of 3rd grade when we changed teachers. Paris is a very difficult school to fit in socially, unless you are the elite group of Paris. She scored high on TAX (then) for acedemic recognition. Took spanish as a 8th grader in excelled classes. I would recommend Chisum 1st NL2nd Paris 3rd. To anyone!
