For those of you who think this is a great school you must be confused. It's so bad that after being doomed to this neighborhood school I actually pulled my son to home school him. Supposedly this place also has a gifted program which makes it's stats even more abysmal. How OUSD can let this school exist in such a state I will never know. In 2013, Lafayette Elementary ranked worse than 99.7% of elementary schools in California. It also ranked 60th among 63 ranked elementary schools in the Oakland Unified School District.

I absolutely loved this school. I had the opportunity to work as a substitute teacher at Lafayette. As a substitute, you have a different perspective. Children aren't usually on their best behavior, sometimes testing boundaries. That was not the case at Lafayette. The students were Superstars. The class was a 2nd-3rd grade combination. The children were able to complete Journaling, Reading, Math, Science, Entrepreneurship, and Art. We had additional time at the end of the day and returned to complete another Math assignment. There were no behavioral issues whatsoever. In fact, the students volunteered to help each other. I had an easy day here. I can only thank a great administration, staff, and parents. (Why not 5 stars? They need more computers in the classroom.) So.....corporations......here's a great place to donate to a worthy cause. A highly motivated student body and great staff.

This is the best Elementary School the have in West Oakland and I feel very safe to that my two daughter attend Lafayette. The have a very excellent learning program and the Teachers plus Principle & stuff are very caring about how well you children are doing in class. They also have alot of wonderful after school programs and montoring program to help your children with work or a subject that your child might be having problems in. They offer alot of programs. That's why I rate the school as Excllent.
