La Salle College Preparatory Reviews

La Salle, compared to other high schools, is very good at preparing their students for college. There is a whole department for college counselors that keep students on track. There are many classes to choose from at this school depending on what a person is interested in. La Salle has many great teachers, especially in the math department, but they could change some of the lazier teachers at the school.

I went to la salle from 2000-2004. I had the best experience. Cheerleading, reading leaders, tennis, baseball score keepers, choir, the list goes on. Many opportunities and a very diverse school. The chocolate chip cookies were amazing and only a quarter! I had amazing teachers and a great education. My dad and I both went there and fully enjoyed our education.
My experience at La Salle High School has been beyond great. The community here is the best I have seen at any school and everyone is included in every activity. Teachers pay attention to all students and never fail to stay after class to help any individuals who ask for it. Also, the athletic scene at La Salle is very competitive and the student body does a great job of making it a fun environment at all games. One thing that I would want to see La Salle doing better is boosting the arts department.
