De La Salle Middle School was founded in 2001 by the Christian Brothers of the Midwest. With the goal of providing a quality education to underserved 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students in North St. Louis’ African-American community, De La Salle offers an empowering education centered on comprehensive academic preparation, small class sizes, and dedicated teachers and staff, all within the frame work of an extended school day and a year-round academic calendar. De La Salle educates 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, but our school’s focus extends beyond the middle school years, as well as beyond our school building. We help place students in one of St. Louis’ preparatory high schools and offer them academic and counseling support throughout their high school and college years. De La Salle is a holistic place where students are nurtured academically, physically, morally, and spiritually. As a neighborhood school that instills values and fosters accountability, we believe that excellence in education increases individuals’ opportunities while also building stronger families and a better community.
