Our child is finishing kindergarten at Lafayette and we love the school! Her teacher has been great and very easy to communicate with. There is a vibrant and active community of parents. The opportunities the kids have, from field trips to the (wonderful) school play, have been amazing. Our kid loves her class, her classmates, and the school. Lafayette wasn't our first choice school in the lottery but it definitely would be now.

There is nothing about this school that is bad. Principal Caceres is amazing. The teachers are amazing. Adding in the PAX program was a wonderful idea.

The common core curriculum Is really stressing out the teachers and it is age inappropriate. Your child will have penmanship practice on the first day as homework and the standards for acceptable printing are ridiculous. At least kindergarten teacher yells. The bathrooms for all children, even kindergarteners, are down two flights of stairs. This school is very old school, old building, old fashioned. You will not be allowed into the classroom on the first day of K. Parents are nice and not cliquish, and the location by GG park makes amazing opportunities for fundraising. The plays are wonderful. In summary: great parents, teacher attitudes need an overhaul. Child development training is needed.
