LaFayette High School is proud of its Move On When Ready (MOWR) offerings. We currently offer College level English, Math, History, Computers, and Psychology. Students have the opportunity to earn over 25 college credits during their high school career. Please see someone in Guidance for more information about taking advantage of this option. We are very excited about extending these opportunities as we grow and progress into the future.

LaFayette High School has a strong community tradition which was originally established in 1922. The original LaFayette High School was built on North Main Street, located in downtown LaFayette, in 1922.

In 1968, the original building went through a reconstruction and renovation process to modernize the facilities. In 1998 the students and staff of LHS transitioned to a brand new campus and building on Round Pond Road, just a few miles away from the original campus, remaining in the City Limits of LaFayette in an effort to continue the strong tradition of the LaFayette Community.

In 2014, the current LHS building went through a renovation in which new classrooms, and a state of the art field house, were added to support the increase in our student body and extracurricular activities. Our facilities are modern, and the technology infrastructure is very up to date.

The students and staff of LHS continue to build on traditions, which have resulted in a much-improved graduation rate over the past several years.
