DeSales High School Reviews

I liked how the teachers care and how they are willing to help. They are available before and after schoo The administration is also very helpful, you can come to them with any problems you may have. The principals and staff go out of their way to make everyone feel they belong and included and are a huge part of DeSales success. We came out ready for college and life beyond the classrooms. They have us pride in ourselves and our community. I would not have wanted to be anywhere else!

My time at DeSales prepared me not just for college, but for the rest of my life.
The faculty go above and beyond to make sure the students are prepared for anything and everything that comes there way.
It is also one of the more diverse Catholic high schools in Louisville, which gave me a better perspective of the real world.
I could not recommend this school enough.
DeSales is very friendly and well rounded environment for any young man to attend high school. There are many opportunities for these young men to be involved in some way or to spike the interest of each and every student. All facility and staff are amazing. They have a true passion to be present, helpful, and to see all young men to succeed. The campus is beautiful, well maintained, and shows the pride everyone has for DeSales. DeSales is definitely a family away from family. Our sons are their sons. There is no doubt that the students are receiving the best DeSales has to offer. Your son may walk in a boy, but he will leave a man. #GOCOLTS
