All of our students are English Language Learners when they begin at the school, with some having been in the United States up to four years and others for only a few days. If you’d like to be a part of a safe, supportive community with rigorous and interesting classes, lots of different programs and opportunities, all kinds of sports, and careful attention to college readiness, then the International High School at Lafayette is for you! Contact us to arrange for a visit, see classes, and meet current students!
