    "Lafayette high was a great school but some teachers made you feel like you were stupid and couldn't do what every smart kid would. it gets you ready for college but doesn't really get you ready for the assignments for it."

    "Lafayette High School has great administrative staff and great teachers. However, sometimes some of the students are rather blatant in their disregard for rules and such. But, you will always have those students no matter where you go. I would say that the academics at Lafayette are very strong. We offer nearly all AP courses available (except for Chinese, Capstone, and Research Seminar I think?) Lafayette is surrounded by rather affluent neighborhoods, so technology and school-maintenance is top-notch. This year (2017), Rockwood has decided to completely renovate the science labs and hallway. We have our own school store that's open on most days, and run by the Parent PTO. Also, we have a student run cookie stand that's amazing! Our lunch options are pretty average (I think?). Many people from LHS will tell you that the food is horrible, but it's actually not that bad. You have a lot of options to choose from, and a lot of variety."

    "Lafayette High School is an amazing school. The school is ranked not only in the state of Missouri but nationwide as well. In addition, the staff is an amazing group of people who strive to ensure that students realize their true potential. Not only are the staff great, but on average, students meet or exceed national testing standards. Out of the entire school's test takers, students score at or above the national ACT average. Also, students at Lafayette High School average a score of 3 on AP Exams annually (a passing score). Furthermore, the students, teachers, and parents are heavily involved in clubs, sports, and activities. The school has a great athletic program which often wins state titles frequently. Lafayette is just a fantastic school overall and I highly recommend it. Thanks and go Lancers!"
