Lafollette elementary is one of the best schools my child has ever attended. The teachers and principals work very hard to ensure the kids are safe and well educated when they leave there. The administration was super nice and very helpful when i needed answers about school work for my child. All the teachers seem really nice to the kids. I dont see why anyone would choose another school for their kids. Great job keep up the good work

They really don't like students that are ADHD or Autistic. They don't follow IEP guidelines. They don't send notes home or no communication with parents. You can't talk to teacher or visit the teacher at all. Kids are getting left behind.

I was very glad that I took my son out of jacksboro elem. school and enrolled him at lafollette. the teachers were very helpful and good to him. He had mandy prater in 4th grade and he just loved her she was good to him. He also had Mrs. Bowman and Mrs. Hatmaker for 5th grade they to time to brag on him and were there any time if you needed to speak to them. I would send any child there and not think twice about it.

A brand new school that was combined from: West & East LaFollette Elementary Schools. After finaly working out all the differences in Teachers & Faculity coming together, it is becoming a school that is remembering what becoming a Teacher was all about..The Students! The atmosphere that is there is much better and it is benefiting the students as a whole. The Principle and Assistant Principle are doing a great job with all the adjustments and finaly it is becoming a School that will benefit our community.
