Welcome to the Class of 2017
Greetings from Nicollet Island!
Welcome and thank you for your interest in DeLaSalle High School. This year, we have already begun meeting with students and families to share with them how DeLaSalle graduates are young women and men who are intellectually competent, religiously aware, and marked by a genuine commitment to the service of others. It is wonderful to hear that so many again are interested in DeLaSalle. We hope to meet your family soon!
The 2012-2013 school year has been exhilarating: Enrollment is growing, new Science labs and classrooms have been upgraded, and year two of our Isle-Pad program is in full swing. Each student has been issued an iPad for academic use throughout the school year, and our teachers are continually implementing technology to strengthen our academic programs. Our graduates attend many of the finest colleges and universities, and they will tell you, without hesitation, that DeLaSalle prepared them to meet the challenges of higher education. It’s a great time to be an Islander!
And yet, with all this good news about growth and innovation, we remain focused on our primary duty as a Catholic, Lasallian high school: to understand and encourage the gifts of each individualized student as he or she becomes a young adult over the next four years. Every student matters at DeLaSalle. We will get to know our students by name, as we continue our practices of keeping small class sizes and having a “no-cut” policy for ninth graders who try out for extracurricular programs. Teachers will care. Coaches and moderators will care. We’re looking for students who also care-and want to be in a school where they will matter.
While we hope our online resources provide you with the information you need about DeLaSalle, visiting our historic campus is the only way to truly get a sense of the distinguished history and tradition that make DeLaSalle such a special place. It’s a great school and it keeps getting better!
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…Pray for us!
Live Jesus in our hearts…Forever
