What I liked about Lafayette is our principal knew every student by name. No joke! It didn’t matter how many times he saw you in that day, he’d be just as excited as the first time. He’d always say, “Not everybody can be, but everybody wants to be a commodore.” I would like to see more teachers set out like him.

I loved going to Lafayette high school. The feeling of family and the sense of belonging can’t be duplicated. I would like to see more programs for science and math. Maybe, incorporate a medical program that you can have opportunities to mirror healthcare professionals.
Lafayette is a good environment to perform your best in. The teachers are nice and they genuinely care about students doing their best and their well being, as do all the other staff. The only thing I could say bad, is that it can get a bit congested in the halls at times, but that is out of the staff's control.
