I, as a former LaSalle Academy student, have undergone the hard work and restless nights myself. Every year they exposed you to new, never before seen material. Students have a tendency to complain about the teachers, in all reality those teachers just weren't the type to let you mess around the whole class. Few people know the stress that any teacher or faculty member of a school undergoes, and let me tell you all the teachers handle very well. Fifth grade with Mr. Marosz and Mrs. Lotridge was a blast, learning and having fun couldn't have been better. They made one awesome team. Sixth grade with Mrs. Neighbor and Mrs. Brandt were magnificent, I even learned how to knit. Band was always a blast, pushing you to your full potential. Mr. Bennett, Mrs. Amato, Mrs. Nalepinski, and Mrs. Albright all were beyond amazing for seventh grade. They really pushed me and helped me learn! Eighth grade has to be the greatest year I had. We won the blue ribbon award, I gave a speech, I was taught how to write research papers. Mr. Eller I have to say is one of the greatest teachers ANYONE will ever encounter, along with Mrs. Sipes, Mrs. Martinez, Mrs. Baumgartner, and Mr. Chan. -Lion Pride(:

I currently attend La salle as an 8th grader who has been here since the 5th grade. I love this school ! All of the teachers are great , regardless of students opinions . The ones they don't like , are just the ones that push them the hardest. I've learned so much , & had so many great experiences at this school , that I don't really want to leave . Our sports are A1 . We RARELY lose in anything . LADY LIONS SOFTBALL CONSECUTIVE 4 TIME CITY CHAMPS . Not to brag or anything . Students at other schools give us a bad rap, saying that we're conceited and think we're better than everybody else. I've even heard they even start booing when they hear our name. Regardless of that, I have few problems with any of the students , and our 8th grade class has been like one big family since 5th grade . We're a nationally recognized blue ribbon school and have the test scores to show for it. I think the best thing I'll remember about my days at La Salle , other than our amazing sports teams , inspiring teachers, and unbreakable friendships I've made , will be that sense of pride I had everyday walking around those hallways . LIONS YOU KNOW ! ! Once A Lion , Always a Lion.

I attended LaSalle Academy in grades 5 through 8, and this school is exceptional. I am now a freshman in highschool and I am far ahead of other students my age. LaSalle is the school to thank. It is very strict, but that is a good thing if you want a great education. I entered into highschool being able to go into the highest education level classes I was allowed to take. GO LIONS! ~LaSalle Class of 2012~

The Teachers and staff are cold and have no communication skills. I was told this is a wonderful school. They make you feel like if your child is not at LaSalle they are just not smart. Sham on you LaSalle!

We are new at LaSalle this year coming from Tarkington. Tarkington definetly prepared my daughter for LaSalle. The teachers are warm, understanding and also strict, which is welcome in our home. My daughter is very comfortable there and I am very pleased with the communication and dedication presented by the teachers.

I have not seen too many schools with such a dedicated staff. At 5:00 and 5:30 the parking lot is still full of cars and there are so many opportunities for students to participate in. The music programs are as good as most high schools. My child has worked hard and challenged at this school.

The teachers at Lasalle Academy have done their utmost to help my son (7th grade) achieve his potential. We are grateful for their passion for their work and the excellent organization of the coursework and evaluation structure (including homework websites). Jazz Band is terrific too! We only wish the classes were a bit smaller (20-22 per class), to allow for more personal guidance to middle-school kids, who can be challenging at times.

I am attending LaSalle currently and I think very highly of the school. The teachers and administrators are very helpful and are full of knowledge. They have a variety of things to teach and they teach it all (MR.BENNETT) LaSalle is a fantastic school and I am proud to say that most of the life skills that I have, I have aquired them with the help of the teachers and administraitors at LaSalle.I am currently in the 8th grade and feel that LaSalle is the best choice if considering attending South Bend Intermidiate Schools.

While I agree LaSalle is a excellent academic school, it is definitely lacking in a few areas. The teachers and administrators don't seem to concerned with student problems. I feel as though they (administrators and teachers) know there are atleast 100 other parents that would like their child to attend LaSalle, so the ones having problems (fitting in socially or academic) are of little to no concern. I have also found that my childs homeroom teacher is never available to speak with and stand-offish when I do finally get a call back and voice any concerns.

Dont let me make you think that its all easy though. it truly is a challenge, but you learn so much and are truly prepared for anything. Have your kid tested!!!!!!!!!

Im not a parent but I was a student and I loved it. It was and is a safe place and the teachers are awsome.(Shout out to Mrs. Chrenka) The arts programs are great the teachers find a way to help each indivisual student but not slow down the ones that are ahead. Also when they say they are studying ahead, they are. I attended the 5th grade and when we moved I had to skip a grade because I was so ahead. Trust me on all of this, I was a student and it was a great, great experience. Send your child to Lasalle.
