This is our first year at Lafayette. I think the principal and staff are wonderful. There are after school activities, sports and groups that meet. There are free breakfasts and lunches for all students, regardless of income. What I feel is lacking is the gifted/ accelerated program. But there is a wonderful warmth and diversity to the school that lacks in many suburban schools. The school is working hard to improve parent involvement and there is a strong anti-bullying program implemented. I would recommend this school.
I agree with the parents who said that this school drops the blame on the parents for what they do wrong. I have a special needs child and my child has been treated very bad at this school and the school district put the blame on me for them not following his IEP, and I was told that things like this will happen! His education needs have not been met, at all.
