We have it all:
If you are on this page, we know you are a dedicated parent who wants to find the school that offers the best and the most opportunities for your child. Your child is the number one reason why you should send him/her to one of our schools. We’ve developed an engaging academic environment that promotes academic and social success.
We strive to educate the whole child. We understand that each one of our students has different needs and learning capabilities. Education is not just an opportunity to learn in the classroom; it is an opportunity for a student to grow mentally and socially. Due to this philosophy, we offer a variety of special and advanced programs. Learn more about these programs by following the links on the side of this page.
Lafayette County Schools recognizes that there are many gifted students in the school district whose educational needs cannot be satisfactorily met entirely through the regular education program. We are committed to the identification of all gifted students in the district and to the provision of appropriate gifted services to those students. Our gifted program, which provides services for intellectually and creatively gifted students, complies with the Gifted Education Program Standards* (2004) and the Regulations for the Gifted Education Program* (2006) as approved by the Mississippi State Board of Education. For more information, please visit the link listed on the side of the page.
We know each student will follow a different career path after his/her time in the Lafayette County School District. Because of this, we offer our high school students the opportunity to take courses at the School of Applied Technology. The areas of study available at the complex include the following: construction technology, teacher academy, co-operative education, agricultural mechanics, automotive technology, allied health, and metal technology.
All employees of the school district are vital to achieving the district’s mission. We provide a staff evaluation and personnel development program to help individuals accomplish their jobs. Such efforts ensure an orderly, healthy, and safe atmosphere while pupils are in the care of the district.
