    "The Teachers and staff at Lafayette High school is great because they put their best foot forward to help the students succeed. Most teachers are available after classes or even after school for students to ask for help and also to provide extra tutoring. Nothing is perfect and everything has their faults so I did not give the teachers a perfect score because yes they are great but they also have teacher who believe that a student can learn just by putting words on a board and making them write it word for word and then study. I know from experience how that sort of teaching can not provide much for the student and how boring and unimportant this class can become. Most teachers are easy to talk to and are inviting for students to communicate but unlike these there are some that is never friendly because they feel as though they do not have to be and students decide they may not ask for anything from that teacher. When students hear the word teacher or grownup we are mislead to believe that they know everything; so every question that we ask them they need to know the answer but that is not true because they are just human and do not know everything.I have had teachers in the past learn at the same time as we did by the students going above what the are teaching and asking different questions. We also have teachers who are able to have a student question not their authority but what they are teaching to get a better understanding and they are able to take the criticism. Another thing teachers do is wait till the last minute to grade papers and put on parent portal which can make the students agitated but that is the same as when we choose to do an assignment at the last minute also. The Teachers are not perfect but they are close to it. everything needs improve; so yes they will be faults in the teaching."

    "Lafayette is a very large school with a lot of teachers. There were some really good teachers and some not so good teachers."

    "I may be biased due to the fact that I am enrolled in the Gifted Program at my school, but the quality of teachers, in my experience, is very high. The teachers are often passionate about the subject that they teach, and are very knowledgeable in their respective fields."

    "My overall experience at this school is great and if I had to do it all over again I would love to choose this school again. The reason as to why I would choose this school again is because of the education that they contain in Lafayette we are the only Gifted school and the only school that provides the heath academy. On the physical appearance the school would not be my first choice because the school is not clean and not properly taken care of; the school is old and becoming rusty. I also love my school because of the diversity of students that goes there everyone has the opportunity to become apart of some kind group.The teacher and staff are also great with some faults but on the overall side great. My favorite experience at school is during school sporting events such as football games because all the students come together and even if we win or lose we still support our team."

    "My experience at Lafayette High has been a positive one so far. The students are very involved in the out of school activities, such as football games, dances, talent shows, etc. One of the best components of Lafayette High is the diversity, due to the Performing Arts academy and Health Academy."
