Open Quote In the past few weeks, I have been in and out of Lafayette Elementary as an aide. If there's on thing I've noticed, it's that the teachers don't seem to hold much hope for the students. Instead, teachers go through the motions of a day-to-day classroom, shuffling them along to the next teacher, always adhering to what the PSSAs may or may not have on them.
I have hope for the students of Lafayette, and I wish the teachers would, too. Give the students a chance to show you how bright they are, instead of constantly putting them down. Let them flourish and grow, and be creative. These kids have it in them, but they won't get it from the Lafayette staff. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
