Although the boundaries of Lafayette put it in the New Ulm Independent School District #88, many school aged students in Lafayette also attend the GFW School District # 2365. Our area schools provide the highest quality education by creating life-long learners through comprehensive academic, athletic, cultural, and extra-curricular opportunities for the children of our community.

The city of Lafayette is saddened that the Lafayette Charter School has its doors before the 2022-2023 school year. The Lafayette Charter School Board will continue to meet on the second Tuesday each month at 5:30pm until their final audit is complted and the dissolution with the State is completed. They will meet on Zoom, see the link below or you can contact Collin Hoffmann at 228-8283 for questions.

The area schools partner with the community, for a stable, safe and caring “hometown” learning environment that focuses on the changing needs of our students and achieves educational excellence, no matter which school you choose.
