As I’m nearing my Grade 12 year, I’ve been pushed and challenged by teachers at De La Salle into learning as much as I can, and have produced work that I never believed I was capable of. The work load is just right, making sure students receive a high-quality education while still allowing them to fully enjoy their time at school and with their peers. Moreover, the high-level education that De La Salle provides prepares us students for a multitude of different jobs in the future. In my opinion, though, it is not only the school’s education that prepares students for the future; rather, it is the life skills that they are taught through their trials and difficulties. Namely, the values of teamwork, effective communication, and determination give me the confidence I need to succeed moving forward. Truly, I feel prepared to do well in any environment because of the respect, integrity, and hard work that De La Salle has provided me with.
The academic expectations are very high at Del. Highly motivated students will be challenged at their level and find a great cohort of strong students to work with. We could not have been more thrilled to see that the students motivated each other to achieve high grades and set high goals for their academic performance. They teach to the AP level in grade 11 and 12 and provide lots of help and resources along the way. Electives must be carefully chosen because not all courses will be offered on a given year if too few students sign up. In the younger grades students may jump ahead to the next grade level and summer school courses are offered at Del. This allows for more electives in the grade 12 year.
