De La Salle Institute - Institute Campus Reviews

The current experience at De La Salle Institute has shifted in a sense that I would like to be further involved in advanced course and available college courses in my early high school careers. I would prefer for students that exemplify themselves as being outstanding to have the opportunity to showcase that said knowledge in further advanced courses. In terms of the financial aid, I've had two other relatives attend before me yet my single mother of 4 still has to pay a full tuition. On a side note, the extra-curricular activities and sports have a very wide variety and are heavily funding. As for students who seek a school for the arts, music, and theatre, I recommend looking into a different institution. De La Salle holds true to most tradition as I know from my older siblings, and it continues to pride itself on being one of the oldest institutions in the city of Chicago. As a student, I take into account the long history of being a De La Salle meteor.

De La Salle’s main priority were the students, making sure everyone is good! Also, the counselors stay on the students to make sure they are taking care of their business, especially if you are a junior or senior planning to go to college.
My experience at De La Salle is overall amazing. I love the friendly atmosphere that the teachers and students created. The teachers are willing to work with me if I don’t understand the material being taught. But one thing to make De La Salle better is if they put as much funding as they do with the sports. The athletes at my school are talented but so are the musicians. If both were kept on the same pedestal, then it would show future students that both activities are equally important.
