Lafayette School Corporation Reviews

I liked a lot about LSC, there are some things I would change though. I feel as thought their Anti-bullying initiative isn't very helpful, and they show a lot of videos that seem to pat the backs of people who are just nice, rather than giving actual help to people who are being bullied. I like their approach into a more modern tech-based education, but there were so many bugs it made it difficult to use the computers we were given. The Jefferson high school library also got rid of a lot of their books, about 1,000 of them for a "makers space" that didn't really appeal to anyone. It was really just an area with legos and building tools that no one had the time to use during classes. I did love many of my teachers and administrators, and the sports and arts programs are great! I just wish that the theater program was given more funds, like the music programs are given.

The diversity and variety of academic classes is refreshing as someone who came from a small, southern school. You can tell lots of effort from the administration goes into making their schools great for their students!
Lafayette School Corporation is a wonderful community to be a part of. My mother has taught for the Lafayette School Corporation for 30 years. Within these 30 years, she has taught at 3 different schools in the Lafayette School Corporation. This corporation has provided her with mentors and fellow educators who she will stay connected with even after retirement. She has been provided with ample opportunities for growth within this district. The Lafayette School Corporation provides stability and empowerment to it's students.
