Description: Lafayette Estates Elementary School creates and maintains an environment rich with opportunities that enable every student to reach his or her highest level of academic and social achievement as determined by state and national standards. We are a diverse, multicultural school, whose population of over 540 students, in kindergarten through grade five, are literate in over 25 different languages and hale from a multitude of nations. Community defines the school experience as students interact with the curriculum to become analytical, compassionate, creative and innovative individuals. While students discover and explore their interests, parents play and integral role in the home-school relationship which ensures a supportive school environment.
An integrated curriculum provides researched based programs to accelerate student achievement, close the achievement gap and provide remediation, when necessary. The K-5 instructional program encompasses Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Health, Physical Education, Science, World Languages, Technology, Guidance, Character Education, Art, Instrumental and Vocal Music. Academic programs include the integration of technology and a variety of instructional strategies which stress literacy development and foster problem solving skills. The use of a spiral curriculum reinforces and expands upon concepts previously presented to motivate students through differentiated instruction while specialized instruction is provided to address learning differences and academic challenges as students develop the strategies necessary to excel academically.
Students engage in a multitude of projects which connects the school to the global community. Food drives, support for the troops, Student Council, Safety Patrol and holiday donations are but a few. These activities provide students a venue to appreciate the talents and contributions of others while learning profound lessons about themselves and how they wish to conduct themselves in the world.
The parent’s organization makes Lafayette Estates a unique building through maintaining its vibrancy and providing opportunities for students to explore a wealth of educational excursions such as the Museum of National History, Newark Museum, Liberty Science Center and Jenkinson’s Aquarium. Class Parents volunteer throughout the school year and are responsible for developing enthusiasm and a natural excitement for school and learning.
Whether you are a student or parent Lafayette Estates continually strives to build academic success for all while embracing individuality, encouraging innovation and building relationships.
