Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
I reported some issues (not with my own children) and they were dealt with immediately.

Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
There is a new principal as of the 1025-16 school year. Overall academic performance doesn't seem to be a strong after winning the blue ribbon, but my children love the new principal as she is more approachable than the last.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Smaller school so everyone knows each other. Most parents know each other as well.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
My older child has had a great experience with Italian, but my younger child has struggled in Spanish with both Spanish teachers. It would be nice to have more communication from these teachers as to what the vocabulary is for the students.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
I wish there was a way for teachers to communicate more to parents on children's daily homework, but that's an issue with CPS and not the school itself.

I have two children at LaSalle and they are very content at LaSalle. I love that it is a smaller school and also diverse. Parents are involved and teachers set expectations for students' overall behavior. Great social events are planned by the LLC throughout the year for students and parents alike.

LaSalle is a great school that has only improved over the past few years. The world language program is truly special and there has been a strong emphasis placed on art and music in addition to the core subjects. Extensive work has been done over the past few years to bring more technology in the classrooms. Large class sizes are unfortunate, but are compensated for by reduced sizes during foreign languages classes. New electives for grades 5-8 are a major hit with kids who get to select a class that they want to take. Virtually all of the "deadwood" teachers mentioned in other reviews are now gone. For a CPS school that you don't have to test into, LaSalle clearly deserves to be ranked among the very top schools in the city and consistantly places high percentages of students into the best selective enrollment high schools. We have been here six years and count ourselves as incredibly lucky to have gotten in.



- a
There is an exceptional quality to the school at many levels. A real jewel in the city.




- a
LaSalle is simply the best! We love it for our daughter and can' wait to enroll our son. Good to know: once you are in, all siblings coming in kindergarten are enrolled in the sibling lottery.



- a
I thought I won the lottery when my daughter got accepted to LaSalle, a school that offers a diverse setting , along with a strong curriculum and safety. Not ! not this school, it is truly running off of it's reputation! The principal doesn't return emails in a timily matter, issues are down played and you are told as the parent to speak to the mom on your own time not LaSalle, bullying happens everyday and the interventions that cps claims to have a zero tolerance for is not practice here! This school is not a safe healthy learning environment for my child unless you are part of the political party here, I was confronted by a parent and told to wait here until she comes back after I ask the assistant principal for a parent conference in which the AP told me no conference, and for me to call the parent, I told her I wouldn't contact this parent and that it should be in a conference at thee school.
