About La Salle Middle
La Salle Middle School, formerly De La Salle Middle School, is a public charter school located in North St. Louis. La Salle is committed to transforming children and our community through innovative education. We work hard to educate the whole child. Students at La Salle are pushed to achieve academic excellence, nurture caring relationships, understand the need for service in the community and are shown the importance of respect for all.
La Salle offers many benefits to help students succeed such as extended school day and school year and small class sizes with a student to teacher ratio of 13:1. La Salle also features an active Parent Teacher Association. Outside the classroom, students may choose to participate in the EnCompass program, an optional enrichment program that includes classes such as dance, speech and swimming. Students who participate in the EnCompass program are offered many college preparatory opportunities including financial aid, tutoring and counseling. EnCompass students participate in college visits starting in fifth grade, visiting schools in Tennessee, Chicago and the St. Louis area.
