About the teacher, the teachers are good, they are really helpful and cares about the students. some teachers are bad, they are not cover much of the material and just give tests. about the students, most of them are having a bad attitudes. they talk trash and bad languages, they have a bad behavior, dont care to others' feeling and a little bully. but just a couple of them are good. about the school, it is too small and quite depressing. with old fashion school, it kind a dusty and disgusting, the classes are comfortable. the hallway is too small for the big amount of students, so uncomfortable and inappropriate. they need bigger place. they treated the students too hard. they educate students like in military school.

I'm very proud my son graduated from La salle Academy this year. He will enter College in Sep. and he is well prepared for his future and succesful career. All his teacher were involved in his education during his four years . La salle Academy is a very good school for boys.

My son is currently at LaSalle Academy. This school lost their building and is sharing space with St. George's Academy. Less space, same tuition *and pretty high at that. LaSalle is not the primary school so they get the leftovers from St. George. When we toured the building last year, we toured the old building on 2nd St even though they knew full well that they would not be occupying that building in the Fall. It was the biggest scam! School is run like a military and staff tend to be very aggressive with the kids. Website is rarely updated and information on there is poor. It all looks and sounds great but just doesn't work. I definitely do not recommend this school!

The teacher's at La Salle Academy are extremely dedicated and the atmosphere is more one of an extended family at times rather than just an educational institution. Students are OFTEN found remaining after school to "hang out" with their favorite teachers. The time is spent completing assignments, getting help, or just playing games and talking. As a teacher, I honestly can say that these students leave a warm spot in my heart and, although at times they can wear one down, they almost always lift my spirits. They, for the most part, are grateful for what we do for them and with them. Parents appreciate our efforts (again for the most part) but sometimes need to be reminded that we are all human. Some parents have absurd expectations and seem to think teachers and faculty exist ONLY for their son, disregarding the needs and time spent with others. I am more than happy to be a part of the history of this institution.

My son currently is a student at La Salle Academy. I have never seen any school that care less about student s grades. Because, if they were caring they would communicate with the parents and let us know the progress of our kids. There is no weekly reports that we parents have to sign and return back to the school, there is no alerts if student is not doing his home work(s), there is no alerts if student not working as he must work in the classroom. You will find out about how your son is doing only when you receive the progress report and report card. When you ask teacher how you, as a parent can be involved in controlling the progress? Teacher will tell you to send him/her emails, and when you did, they never answer it.

When we were shopping for a high school for our son four years ago, La Salle Academy promised to educate him in a caring and nurturing environment where he would earn his high school diploma and move on to college. I am proud to say that La Salle delivered on its promise! My son credits his excellent academic performance to his teachers and the brotherhood shared by all the students. The faculty and students really look out for one another. We are so happy he chose this school. He will enter college in the fall fully prepared as a mature young man.

La Salle is one of the best private high schools in the city. The teachers are caring, the administration is supportive, and the student body is very friendly.

La salle academy is a very good school. However, parent involvment is extremely low. There are plenty of extracurricular activities for students and the teachers are magnificent but I would definitely like to see more parental involvment.

A very good school but needs more enforced discipline. Teachers are warm and caring, and make LSA a great place to be every day.

Provided me with a great education and ability to enter the big and busy world, as a caring, aware and productive member of society. I've done quite well based on the experiences at LaSalle.
