a great school does not allow an arrogant school official to demean the homecoming queen at the homecoming dance and then have the queen leave.

De La Salle Is The Best Catholic School I've Ever Been To. I thought It Would Be Just Like All The Others I've Attended, With Way Too Many Rules. But, I Was Wrong I Love It Here At De La Salle....I Will Keep You Updated Throughout My Further Years. (: ILoveeYouu! DLS!...Whoop-Whoop! (:

I currently go to de la salle. I absolutely hate it. I love school just not this one. The teachers cant teach. They pick favorites and fail the hated. The guidance department is horrible. They do not seem to help at all. They dont even make me feel better. The administration thinks all the teachers are great and wont listen to anyone else. I do not think people should send their kids their if they want their kids to actually go somewhere in life.

De la Salle could be a better school if they would get rid of some of the administration. The V.P is best administration has to offer its ashame that she is the only one who really cares about the students. The facuality has many great teachers as well but, because of the administration many of the good teachers were let go and the De La Salle administration should have never let them go and after being let go these teachers/coaches at other schools like Jesuit and Shaw. Finally note De La Salle did not prepare me for college at all so, as of now I can not give them a good review and would suggest to parents to send their children else where.

The guidance department is the best in the city. My son was accepted to the top three of his choice. Thank you De La Salle.

This institution is unlike any in southeastern Louisiana . I live in Jefferson Parish and could send my child to any school in the parish. However i sent her to De La Salle for its Academic exellence.

On a national scale De La Salle would be about 60%...great teachers but a really messed up vindictive administration. The administration keeps the school from being a great school. Choose another school. Most students that feel the school is great are only saying that because they have not attended any other schools.

The best school in the city. I was very fortunate to have attended this great school. There is a very familiar atmosphere. Th eteachers cared about us. I wanted to drop out of one of my classes but he wouldn't let me. He pushed me to my highest potential. The students there were veryaccepting, we were like a big family. The principal was very caring and very understanding. I believe the faculty adn staff were very fair. I would definitely reccomend this school. De La Salle Lead On!!!!!!!! I miss you!

De La Salle is a wonderful school. Not only is it an institution of fine teachers, modern and clean facilities, De La Salle offers an innovative curriculum and a caring and concerned administration. A De La Salle education is truly among the best educational values in New Orleans.

In the past few years, this school appears to be in decline. Many of the educational bright spots, such as a large variety of electives and activities, are disappearing. It might be possible for this school to return to it's past level of excellence, but it would require major changes in administration.
