What is a typical Lafayette High School student like? Describe the type of person who should attend Lafayette High School.


Anonymous, Student, Lafayette High School, Class of 2017

Lafayette High School is located in Oxford, Mississippi which is often referred to as "The Deep South." That definitely gives a clear picture of the area. Most students have country accents and mannerisms. They like drinking sweet tea and eating cornbread. It's very rare for them to miss a hunting or fishing season. The guys usually talk about their trucks or what they're going to do over the weekend, and the girls talk about the guys or what they're going to do after school. However, this shouldn't stop anyone from attending Lafayette. Our school sets the standards for acceptance. They don't judge anyone over anything. However, religion is a big thing in the south, so you have to keep that in mind. Other than that I wouldn't worry. After all, there's a reason they call us the hospitality state.
