JB Lafargue Special Education

J B Lafargue Special Education Center believes that all students can learn, and that when learning expectations are high, student achievement is elevated. JBL is dedicated to providing a rigorous education to all students with disabilities, ages 3-21, by working collaboratively with and assisting Rapides Parish schools, teachers and parents. We are advocates for students with disabilities and committed to meeting their unique needs in the least restrictive environment.
