A team of five educators completed a two-day external review of DeLaSalle on February 13 as part of an accreditation review the high school goes through with AdvancED every five years.
The visiting team observed classrooms, reviewed school practices and survey data, and interviewed more than 100 community members, including students, faculty, staff, parents, and trustees. The survey data featured results from surveys that parents and students took this past fall.
Team members shared many examples of DeLaSalle being an exemplary school in their wrap up interview with school president, Barry Lieske, and principal, Jim Benson. Students spoke highly of how they felt cared for and challenged. Parents expressed high praise for the faith-filled, safe learning environment their children participate in.
Evaluators will finalize their report in 30 days, which will be reviewed by the AdvancED Council some time in April for final accreditation approval.
DeLaSalle has been accredited as a college preparatory school since 1929.
