    We moved to New Orleans in July between my kid’s 10th and 11th grade years; my husband retired from the Army. I contacted De La Salle because we wanted a co-ed and racially, ethnically, and socially diverse school. Mr. Bonura (no longer at DLS), Ms. Atwood, and Mr. Kelly were wonderful. DLS accepted my daughter’s out-of-state classes as well as previous state Standardized Test Scores and assigned classes that fit her academic progression. When my daughter struggled with the Semester Schedule (this mimics college--classes are offered in an 18-week semester instead of across the whole school year), faculty helped her adjust. DLS is not without the usual teenage-related issues; when my daughter was having trouble with other students, the staff and faculty responded quickly and appropriately without me becoming involved. If you are moving to NOLA from out-of-town or out-of-state, I encourage you to consider De La Salle!

    As a graduate of 2018, I had the most transformative experience a student could ask for! I made lifelong friends, and De La Salle provided me with the opportunities and education to succeed not only in college, but in the real world. The faculty is also amazing and really pushes to make real connections with the students. I would definitely recommend for future students to challenge themselves with the honors and AP classes at De La Salle. The extracurricular clubs and sports really enhance the entire high school experience too! The tight-knit community at De La Salle also really made me feel comfortable as I came in as a freshman, and the upperclassmen truly served as great role models.
    My daughter attended DeLaSalle from 8th-12th grade and we absolutely loved the school. She was an A student throughout her time there. The school prepared her very well for college. I can not say enough about how caring the facility and staff was with all the children. From the president to the secretary everyone knew each child’s name, clubs they were involved in, academics, etc. DLS was a great place for my daughter. Cavs lead on!
