The teaching staff are generally very knowledgeable in their area of study and many have had careers outside of teaching. They set high expectations of the student but are readily available for help along the way. Our daughter was challenged but would say that she 'learned how to learn' at De La Salle. Her traditional study habits and learning strategies have been invaluable in her transition to university. We found the teaching staff to be very accessible to discuss progress or problems at any point through the school year. The guidance team were also knowledgeable, helpful and reassuring especially when preparing for university. There seemed to be a healthy camaraderie among the teaching staff which also fostered a welcoming academic environment within the student body and parent community.
