La Salle Middle School

Rooted in the Lasallian tradition of making a quality education accessible to all, we provide excellence in education, promote service, justice, care, inclusivity, community and zeal. 

We proudly proclaim, “I am somebody!”

PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
The staff of La Salle Middle School believes that the purpose of education is to create learning experiences that are liberating and empowering. This belief calls for the education of the whole person according to his or her developmental needs. Our students seek that empowered sense of self that comes from learning and testing new skills and goals in the presence of strong mentoring, support, and exposure to diverse role models.

We, in partnership with parents and guardians, believe that each student can excel in academics and in life regardless of environmental influences, socioeconomic status, or race/ethnic background.

La Salle Middle School sees its mission as giving due emphasis to the human, cultural and intellectual development of its students to prepare for success in high school, college, and the workplace.

TAKE A MOMENT AND ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION?
Does my child do the same things other children his or her age do? Some children need help walking, talking, seeing, hearing or learning. If you feel your child needs help, contact the professionals at LaSalle Middle School by emailing mtovar@lasallemiddleschool.org, or asking to speak with Mary Tovar in room 206, at 314-531-9820, extension 1009. Special education services are available to all eligible children birth through high school, in both public and private settings, including children who are highly mobile, homeless or wards of the state.

Early detection is the key to helping your child get off to a good start. Getting help today prepares your child for future success.
