I had a child in this school for 5 years. I am very disgusted and I would never recommend the place to anyone. There are terrible bullying problems and don't think because it is a catholic school that anyone is going to do anything about it. The zero bullying policy is a joke. They do nothing. All the way up to the diocese. My child was bullied and abused. Would come home crying almost daily. What do you do? You call the school you try to help them. The school did nothing. Currently we are enrolled in a public school and my child has never been this happy in school! So anyone considering catholic school- I'm not sayin catholic school is a mistake- just this location.

MY GRANDSON LUKE IS IN PK-3 AND AND LOVES GOING TO SCHOOL. I THINK IT IS A FABULOUS SCHOOL, GREAT TEACHERS WHO CARE ABOUT THE STUDENTS THEY TEACH AND A GREAT ACADEMC PROGRAM INITIATED IN PRESCHOOL!!!!


Posted October 13, 2011

LaSalle fell way below my expectations both academically and providing a fun , social kindergarten experience. Preschool program was great. Then, in K the teacher appeared burned out, bored, cold, unapproachable etc...1st conference was end of Feb. My child was intimidated in school. Scared she couldnt shoe tie. No communication book. No sounds, letters, sight words to practice...Totally OLDSCHOOL. Absolutely no school spirit. Few extra curriculars and sports. My daughter loved art and had no outlet to express her creativity. K teacher said my 5 yr old asked too many questions.She should be more independent?NO FIELDTRIPS FOR k students. Always asking for more money on top of $300 tuition monthly . Principal was unapproachable and a little scary. Religion was the big positive and unfortunately my child hated going to school every day. Now enrolled in public school, she is behind and has to catch up.What was i paying all that money for?Rethink this school.No interaction with other parents. Snobby crowd.

I give LA Salle 5 stears. My children are very happy with the school and if my children are happy so am I. The teachers go above and beyond and I know they truly care.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
