Staff Voices at Lafayette

"I love working in a small district where the school is truly part of the community. Everyone is wearing their Huskers gear, the school hosts well attended events, and we are supported by so many members of the community. It is wonderful to be part of something that is valued by the entire community."


"The amount of work ethic that I see within the school not only by teachers and staff, but kids as well, on a day to day basis is what I hope most other people see when they visit Higginsville. I think this is what separates us from the rest and what makes Higginsville a great choice for whoever decides to make this their next career move!


"I recently had a family need and I was told by my numerous colleagues and my admin "don't worry about things here", "everything is handled", "we got you", "take care of yourself". I was truly able to take care of myself and my family without any weight of what was happening at school. I am very grateful to be a Husker and work with people that know life is more than the work that we do."


"Support- from technological to content resources to basic day to day...the support here is like none other."

About Us

Housed on approximately 60 acres, the Lafayette County C-1 School District is one of the first things people notice as they drive into the city of Higginsville on Highway 13, coming from I-70. All district schools are situated on one campus. A large "Home of the Huskers" sign and a replica of "Harold the Husker", school mascot, welcome visitors and residents as they drive by the school complex. C-1 schools have been Accredited with Distinction by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. In addition, the high school has been a member of the North Central Association of Schools since 1944. Lafayette County C-1 offers a diversified extracurricular activities program, providing opportunities in vocal/instrumental music, athletics, and academic support clubs and teams.
