School Reviews

The new Assistant principal is great. She is very understanding to teachers and does her job well. I can''t say the same for the principal. He does not have effective systems in place on a day-to-day basis. As a result, the school does not run smoothly. He is able to see the forest but can''t put in place plans for individual trees. He is well intended but indecisive.

We love LaSalle, currently, our older son attends 2nd grade and will have a kindergartener joining next school year. The language program is great, my child enjoys it and we look forward to the 7th or 8th grade trip with his schoolmates! Extremely communicative teachers and principals, always get back to us when we reach out. Lots of opportunities to volunteer and be involved with the community. The best parent community I have seen quite honestly. A happy and engaged kid means happy parents!!
