LaFayette High School is a great school with many opportunities. Most classes are challenging, but in a good way. This is a great place to get an education and become prepared for whatever you plan to do after graduating. There are countless classes and clubs to associate yourself with in order to prepare yourself for college and life. Their motto is ready for college, ready for work, and ready for life! I entirely believe they follow through with that saying every single school year.

I’ve been involved with this school for 3 years and am absolutely in love with it. The students before me made sure to let the upcoming students know that this is a good school. I am apart of the marching band and couldn’t agree more. We are a family and do absolutely anything to help eachother. The teachers and administrators are amazing to. They always ask multiple times making sure we understand what they are teaching us. The administrators make sure that we know school is a safe place. The guidence counselors are awesome as well,letting us know we can come to them whenever we need anything!
I went to LaFayette High School 9th through 12th grade. Overall I absolutely loved my experience. The teachers are wonderful. I never had an issue with any teacher, and they seem to love their job! A lot of teachers incorporate fun activities into each of their units to make learning easier. The school does not accept bullying and will take care of any suspected bullying fairly quick. The principal and vice principals love all their students and engage with the students in the hallway in between classes. The school is extremely clean and well kept. I highly recommend this school to anyone living in the area or moving to the area!
