The essential intent of Lafayette School is to foster social emotional growth while working to develop intellectual independence in conventional, creative, and innovative ways.
Our programs and staff pages will provide you with resources and an overview of each program offered at Lafayette School. All of our programs are developed using the Common Core Standards and the District Curriculum. Our teachers then construct their daily lessons using best practices which engage and inspire our students to excel beyond their potential.
The Board of Education offers parent-paid subscription transportation for pupils who do not qualify for mandated transportation, i.e., grades K-8 pupils who live two miles or less from school and High School pupils who live two and one half miles or less from school. Availability of seats is based on number of seats open on any mandated route that is not full.
