DeLaSalle High School Reviews

DeLaSalle High School is composed of diverse groups of people. I met people from different social, economic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds; I met people I would have not otherwise have met. This school has amazing view, which helps the students think beyond just themselves. We are committed to serving the poor and vulnerable. We are located on an island near the Twin Cities, so it's easy for us, as a community, to get involved in social justice programs. We have opportunities such as volunteering each week at Sharing and Caring Hands. It's a school that has the smartest, most talented, friendly, cool, and caring people. We are the Insladers!

Academic-wise, DeLaSalle is a great school. There are many honors and AP classes available, but even regular courses are rigorous. In addition to the excellent academics, most teachers are wonderful and truly care about their students’ success. I would say, however, that I have not always felt truly welcomed or included at DeLaSalle. Now that I am a senior, I feel I have found my place at De and have really contributed to the community, but as an underclassman, I often felt forgotten. DeLaSalle is always applauding people who go the extra mile and are super involved in the community, as they should, but they also tend to forget the more quiet, reserved students like myself. I would love to see administrators, deans, and teachers take more initiative to be inclusive of every student, especially those who aren’t the most confident and comfortable at De.
My time at DeLaSalle was forgettable, for better or worse. School spirit was lacking and after about a week there you will see why. The school is just average. It is a huge step above the public schools of the area, but does not deliver it’s claimed academic rigor beyond an unreasonable homework load (most of which is mindless busywork). The music programs are as bad as the food; however, it is not unheard of for individuals to receive fine scholarships. If you have no other options it is a worthwhile investment; just be aware that the administration is disorganized and not much notice is given for school events.
