Our kids love Lafayette Elementary. The principal is amazing, staff and teachers are very competent. This school has amazing music and art teachers. Diversity is great and important to prepare your kids for the real world. Great environment for your kids to grow.
This is the best elementary your child could possibly go to! The diversity is amazing and everyone is nice to one another. There are astonishingly no cliques that my daughter has said, she tells me everyone will sit with anyone at the lunchroom, "the sports boys sit with the special kids, the smarter ones sit with anyone and there is no funny looks if you choose the wrong table." Just the perfect learning environment. It also encourages kids to be the best they can be with the TAG program. (Talented And Gifted) It shows the kids that they are actually special in their own way and makes them aspire to become better. Take your kid to this school if you want them to be happy.
My daughter is in 5th grade now and I have been extremely happy with her experience at LES. My daughter has had lots of opportunities for advanced classes - especially in language arts and math - and I've always been very impressed with how they constantly make sure that students are in the right classroom for these subjects. There are TONS of after school programs and the teachers are fantastic. The energy within the school is really positive and caring, and I will truly miss it next year when we move on to middle school!
This is a great school with amazing teachers, administration and parent involvement. I feel like they really ensure the kids are where they need to be and provide services for kids who need more help, more challenges. The after school options are terrific. The PTA does a lot to support the school. I couldn't be more thrilled with my choice. It's a great learning environment and community.
