La Salle Academy Reviews

La Salle Academy offers academically challenging courses at all levels and an amazing amount of clubs and activities. Despite my child being a student athlete who achieves approximately a 3.5 GPA, I find it disturbing how student athletes are treated with A LOT of favoritism. Despite my own child being treated exceptionally well, it simply isn’t right. We believe all students should be treated fairly with no obvious favoritism. For example, some students wear shoes that are absolutely not within the dress code. My child has been wearing them since day one and has never been reprimanded or even spoken to about dress code violations. Yet other students are written up the very first time they are violating the dress code. If one student gets written up or reprimanded, then ALL students should be written up. We love LaSalle all around, however, that would be its biggest drawback in my opinion.

I like the opportunities you receive when you attend La Salle, for example, with a permission slip signed, a student is allowed to take a camera such as you would take out a camera from the library. Students are given a certain amount of independence during clubs and they can voice their opinions to the school, changing it for the better. Teachers thrive to get to know their students, for example, our Challenge Success event where teachers can talk to students who become ambassadors of other students. It's a welcoming community.
La Salle Academy is a very good school. Almost all of the teachers and administrators are shown to have great care for their students. However, certain students are treated much better than others and their is a great amount of favoritism. There is also the fact that the behavior of certain students is atrocious and the administration lets them get away with it. The most notable of this is the racist attitudes that some students hold. The academics are great, the sports and arts are amazing, but it doesn't really feel like a community.
