I enjoyed going to LP High School. There are lots of activities and
clubs to belong to. The teachers are good and I learned a lot. The teachers genuinely cared for the students. I loved playing basketball the most and made lasting friendships. I also played softball and we got to go on a spring trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I also played tennis and we had the best coaches.
I really enjoyed football season; such an exciting time for everyone. My tennis partner and I got to lead the team onto the field during one game, running ahead of the team with flags. The student section always had so much fun cheering on the team. Our school spirit was the best!

La Salle Peru High School is a very unique school. With the captivating history and modern look, LP captures what a high school should. We have great learning programs and teachers who are willing to go the extra mile to help students succeed. Throughout my experience at LP, I have not had many negative experiences. I have never had a problem with the administration or staff of LP. LP greatly prepares students for college and I can confidently graduate this spring with the feeling that I am ready to tackle college because of everything LP has taught me.
La Salle-Peru Twp High School has many great classes to offer its students, but teachers could be less than helpful at times. It's hard to learn anything about math or what you're doing wrong when you are told to "Google it." There are some very helpful career class options, however, they would be more beneficial if students could begin taking them and learning what they like early on in their high school careers, rather than just junior or senior year.
