My son as a junior this year transferred in from a small school district. He has fit right in with everyone and the staff has been excellent thru the transition with any questions. There is a great energy of learning here. the other parents are so friendly and very involved with their childrens education and very family oriented. My childs life has changed and he is one happy student and has went up dramatically on his GPA since his arrival. I would like to say if you are looking for a positive role model school for your child. Please send them here.
Unless your a fan of racism, homophobia, or elitism this school is horrible. Education is okay, however the social environments for the kids are very hostile. Bullying is a problem and unless you have money the school will not care. Even though there are some quality teachers they are overshadowed by the teachers who bully the kids themselves. Don't spend the money here, instead send your kids to Eisenhower, Davis, Etc. where bullying is in my experience, almost non existent, and the teacher are just as good and even better.
La Salle is a great place - the teachers and staff care so much about the students, and really try to give them the attention they need to succeed. The parents are well-informed, and we feel our kids are safe and cared for in an inclusive environment.
As a student, I greatly enjoy the school. The teachers are dedicated and take their time to work with us, the students, one on one. The learning environment is positive, respectful, and very creative. It could not be better. My classmates are inclusive, feel a sense of unity, and enjoy participating in the extracirrular academic, athletic, and community service activities that are offered year-round. I would definitely reccomend this school for any ambitious and dedicated student.
