Lafayette is renowned for its top rated schools, small town downtown, and oak tree-studded hills. Residents are known to spend their money at local businesses, which make up the majority of downtown of Lafayette. They also tend to be involved in the community as well as their children’s education.
Superintendent of the Lafayette School District has been quoted saying, “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into a classroom and there are four or five adults in there.” Acalanes High School offers a strong college preparatory program. Students are offered six different ROP (Regional Occupation Program) courses. Many of these classes fulfill University of California a-g requirements.
The Lafayette Art & Wine Festival, held each year on the third weekend in September, is the largest event in Lamorinda, and one of the five biggest outdoor festivals in Contra Costa County. Over 50,000 attended in 2015, strolling among stalls of art, handmade crafts, sampling foods from top local restaurants, and enjoying quality wines and microbrews. Karen Richardson Group hosts a wine booth every year to support Lafayette Chamber, local non-profits, and area schools.
