de la salle high school was founded in 1965 in the catholic, lasallian tradition of the christian brothers. we come from a much longer and richer tradition, however. our roots extend more than 300 years to 17th century france and our founder, saint john baptist de la salle, who had a very simple vision of education: that the graduates of his christian schools would be mature, responsible members of society and the church.
as a an all-boys' school, we have an obligation to make a difference in each young man's life, so that when he leaves us, he will serve others graciously and lovingly. we cooperate with one another in a spirit of trust and care; our education is practical, accessible to all, and comprehensive. we are committed to the poor. we work together — brothers, faculty, staff and students.
