DeLaSalle High School Reviews
What a remarkable school! DeLaSalle High School draws kids from many backgrounds and all parts of the Twin Cities. There is a palpable sense of ownership among the students. Our three kids have received an outstanding education at DeLaSalle, and all three were offered admission to colleges rated as "most selective" on a national scale. Every graduate in my son's class had a college option last year. Teachers are authentic and accessible -- and they do a remarkable job of recognizing individual talents. As a Catholic school, our children grew in their intellectual and personal understanding of their faith. All three participated in a wide array of Christian Service programs that were right in line with our family's values. They also participated in a wide array of athletics, fine arts and student leadership programs -- as did their friends. Our two oldest are through graduate school now, and among their "De" friends there are a sizable number of accomplished, young professionals -- doctors, lawyers, researchers, engineers, teachers, and more. Most importantly, we've watched these kids grow to be terrific adult men and women. DeLaSalle delivers!
I have had 2 children attend DeLaSalle. Over the years they have been students, it has changed from a school with an emphasis on community and college preparation to one focused on athletics. If athletics is your goal, you would be better off at Cretin. If religion is why you pick a parochial school, you would be better off at Concordia. For academics, you would be better at Minnehaha or SPA. Why go to De now?
