About Our School
Welcome to Lafayette Street School, the School of Performing Arts and Justice and home of the Falcons. Our school is located in the heart of the Ironbound section of Newark, New Jersey. We are a multicultural school that services over 1,200 students in Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
Students are our first priority. Administration, Faculty and Staff are dedicated to ensuring that every student obtains the academic, social, and cultural skills needed for the 21st century. We utilize a thematic approach by teaching through Interdisciplinary Units of Study, a best practice that integrates all content areas in order to bring relevancy to the student’s learning. We truly believe that with hard work, determination and collaboration great things will happen.
