Welcome to Lafayette High School, home of the Commodores. We serve high school students in the Lafayette County School District in northern Mississippi. We focus on providing a quality education that allows students to enjoy a wide variety of courses and extracurricular activities. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school.
What a great opening of the 2016-2017 school year. We are poised for greatness with a staff of excellent teachers to lead our students and a support staff all around to assist in keeping everything at a high level here at LHS. I am confident that our sixth decade of education here at LHS will prove to be one of the best on record.
Students, reflect on our previous school year and your summer experiences, then set some goals for this school year. Consider a new club or activity, determine that you will utilize our school library and read for pleasure, commit to regular study habits toward excelling in areas where you have a great interest or work to meet the standard for success in areas where you currently do not have an appreciation for the topic. Commitment to success will likely yield a great outcome for you this school year. Your decision to live the Commodore life is of great importance. This means supporting each other, being helpful, and being respectful at all times. Be true to our school and each other, knowing that while not everybody can be, everybody wants to be a Commodore.
To everyone in our school community, I appreciate your support of Lafayette High School. You have proven through your actions that you desire the best experience possible for the in children in the care of our school community. There is a sense of pride in who we are, and I know that your love and support for our school play a vital role in our success. While things are always changing, and there are hurdles along the way, it is evident that the people in our school community are on board with decisions that will yield the very best possible outcomes for our students.
Thanks to everyone for being a part of our success and I look forward to seeing you about campus and in our school community throughout the year.
