WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The West Lafayette Community School Corporation has come up with a name for the district's new school.

West Lafayette Intermediate School is what they settled on at Monday's school board meeting.

The district had students pool together ideas for the school's name.

The name beat out other ideas like Galaxy, Happy Hallow and Dr. Rocky Killion. Principal Margaret Psarros said the process was an enjoyable one.

"Well, we enjoyed it a lot. The kids were brainstorming like crazy," said Psarros "Some of their ideas were out of the box, which was great because we want them to think about things that might not be your typical name." 

Superintendent Rocky Killion said there will be other naming opportunities for the remaining projects in the school district.
