This is an awesome little school, my daughter started transitional kindergarten and is now in kindergarten. The teachers are amazing as is the principal. A great learning experience for the children because the whole school belongs to them and it helps the children to fully integrate and develop their social skills.
This school is excellent thanks to its staff. My experience through parent involvement I got a first hand look as to the schools functions. They make learning fun, those students who lag are given the best support possible. Students having problems integrating, become social butterfly's. My daughter remembers this school with its staff with loving memories. Haven't found a school since Lafayette with its support. So now my daughter is home schooled. So what I'm trying to get to is, this may be one of the last schools that is even worth letting your child into LAUSD.
La Fayette Primary School has a dynamic, compassionate and gifted teacher. her name is Cynthia Marquand. I believe the school she represents should be proud to have her. She certainly helps boost the teaching standard the school ought to maintain. If not for Mrs. Marquand, my wife and I would not have invested my two sons' formative years under such school's academic discipline. Yes, we did our extensive survey, inclusive of more than 50 kinderganten schools, both private and public, within five mile radius from where we live. We had talked and assessed all of the prospective teachers of our sons at their respective schools. And yet, Mrs. Marquard's class sample presentation and her conversational and professional style of dealing with parents in a friendly, eye-to-eye fashion, had convinced us to choose her as our sons' legendary kinderganten teacher. Indeed, we had not relegated our own responsibility to investigate our children's critical pathway to learning, relative to choosing the best primary school. In fact, we both prayed earnestly for such endeavor of proactively participating for our children's educational welfare. Conversely, Mrs. Marquand is both a blessing to the school, to my children, to us as parents, and certainly to others who deemed her as an asset to La Fayette Primary School in Los Angeles.
This is an amazing school for any students first Kindergarten experience. It is a small school and a safe haven that promotes student learning.

When I first came to this school, I knew it was where I wanted my kids to come. Even though I had to register through Open Enrollment, it was well worth it. My child has learned all his high frequency words, talks about all his friends, and is learning a lot about patterns. Everybody there keeps an eye on the kids so I feel very secure about leaving him there.

The teachers and office staff are wonderful!! My twin sons has special needs. The teachers make an extra effort to help special needs students succeed. Ms. Der, Ms. Lee, and Ms. Ayala are all exceptional. They truly individualize instruction and never look at a student as 'difficult.' In addition, their academic standards are high. I cannot say enough good things about this school. My children are thriving and love going to school. What a wonderful place to start their academic journey.
The staff has been wonderful. The environment is a great place for kindergarten kids because everyone focuses on their learning and development. My kid is in Ms. Melendez' class and she is learning a whole bunch of things.

Because parents have developed great rapport with staff members, they often return after their children 'graduate' from our campus, and ask for advice and occasional guidance. They express their gratitude and realize they were part of a great community. Most students meet or exceed academic standards because they are members our our all inconclusive community.

concern Principal, the teachers are exceptional and their methods of teaching are the best! My son did learn a lot from his teacher Mrs. Der, who I consider the best teacher!
This is the best school I have found in my area. The principal is very involved with the children and the parents. My son was very unhappy where he was at and I am grateful for the change in his attitude thanks to this school environment. It is only Kinder which is great for many children. Hands up for this school and it's academic program!
