De La Salle feels like home and a second family for me. As a shy, quiet boy, the caring school community has given me the priceless opportunity to be comfortable in my shoes and feel part of something special. Additionally, the various teams and clubs at the school provide an even greater sense of belonging, allowing students to come closer together and make friendships that can last a lifetime. Furthermore, since each grade size is relatively small (around 100 students in each senior school grade), students are able to form close and meaningful relationships with nearly all of their peers, strengthening the sense of community and care throughout the school. As well, the school ensures that each of its members are appreciated and given the best opportunity to thrive. In fact, through my years here, I have never seen a student eat lunch alone or be left out of an activity or event; truly, the school community is one of inclusion, compassion, and kindness, which has allowed me to feel right at home.
We never had trouble reaching teachers or administration of Del College to discuss academic concerns. The parent teacher interview process had the potential to be quite chaotic, and that meeting with teachers outside of this evening was better for our discussion purposes. The Parent Community was very strong, united and supportive of the mission of the school. The Del Parent Association has monthly meetings in the beautiful Heritage House, great communication through the portal system and hosts grade specific events for parents regarding course selection and university preparation. Brother is very open and honest regarding the school's high standards and adheres to the mission of the founding fathers. He is happy to engage and inspire the young students and is the true figurehead of the school.
