I am a parent of two La Salle graduates and one current student. They have received a wonderful education and got into excellent colleges such as Providence College and Villanova University. The teachers are very educated, warm, caring, and friendly people. The arts are a blessing! All my children have received academic awards and enjoy the athletics offered. Thank you LSA!!!
