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 Lafayette Charter School was a big part of our community from the fall of 1999 until its closing in 2022. 

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.
