Lamesa Independent School District uses the state-adopted Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) as the framework for its curriculum. Each subject is organized according to its major topics and students learn increasingly complex skills and knowledge each year. Elective courses are also covered by TEKS and have learning objectives which help students understand how the subject connects with the real world. In the high school, there are also programs such as Advanced Placement and ACE 21st Century Programs. These have been developed to support students college and career goals.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lamesa District Curriculum
The goals for Social Studies include teaching the children to become responsible citizens, not only locally, but worldwide. They also become aware and understand contemporary issues as well as a healthy self-concept. Throughout their education, students discover how social scientists do their work and how our understanding of urban regions, economic development and cultural change. When they complete their education they also are expected to have a sense of their own heritage as well as cultures and ethnic groups.
A part of the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge for Math is operations and algebraic thinking. Multiplication and division are the two operations that are focused on before students start middle school. Students will eventually move beyond multiplication problems involving the basic facts and multiply numbers with two digits. They will be asked to solve for the "product" and the "quotient"; these are the solutions when multiplying and dividing numbers, respectively. They will understand what factors—the numbers that are multiplied together--are and become familiar with division terms such as the dividend and divisor.

Chalk Talk: Helping Kids Get the Most Out of Leisure Time
Children need time to relax, as do their parents. There are ways to combine this fun time with learning time. Parents, first of all, can replace the high tech devices that the child turns to with board or card games, or other activities that allow for face-to-face time. This applies to the parents also, so the family can enjoy the time without any distractions from technology. Next, parents can model the behavior desired. When with the child give they should give them their entire attention, parents should not text, or answer phone calls during this time. Even watching television can be a relaxing, but learning time. While watching a show, as a family, take time to talk about what was being watched. This helps to build a child’s memory and conversational skills. By thinking about the activities the parent enjoys doing when down, the child can benefit.
