Background Statement

Lafayette Elementary School serves a wonderfully diverse population, providing a unique multicultural learning environment. The school offers authentic academic opportunities, a strong sense of community, and a feeling of belonging for each child.

The school-wide focus on Gifted and Talented programming provides support for identified gifted students through differentiated instruction in the classrooms, flexible skill grouping, curriculum compacting, and acceleration. Enrichment opportunities are available for all students in the visual and performing arts, and through clubs, competitions, and interest groups.

Several special programs support students with unique learning needs at Lafayette Elementary School. In addition to a special education resource program for children with learning disabilities, our multi-intensive program supports children with multiple physical and educational needs. All of these programs are supported by highly trained specialists including a school psychologist, a speech language therapist, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, and skilled para educators. Both programs work through a school-wide inclusion model to support students with special needs in meeting their Individualized Education Plans (IEP) goals.

The Lafayette PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is comprised of parents and teachers who work to improve our school by promoting volunteerism, fundraising for materials and supplies for teachers, and parent/family involvement in the school community.
