De La Salle Public
secondary school

De La Salle Public secondary school enables students to exercise their passion for the arts every day. The school provides a full academic program that focuses on the following three fundamental areas: Values, Intellect and Engagement.

The Values component aims at developing student awareness. Intellect refers to the interdisciplinary of the various subjects in the Ministry of Education’s curricula; it meets the learning needs of each student through pedagogical differentiation, while developing the student’s logical, critical and creative thinking.

Student engagement refers to the desire and motivation to work for and with the community. To become eligible for admission to the Centre, students must demonstrate superior intellectual aptitude.

  • In my home country, everything is small and compact, and here it is huge. There are big sports clubs, people have t-shirts with the name of their school and teachers are very nice. If you have a problem, you can go see them.

  • The cultural diversity that I found here is great! I did not know that Canada had plenty of people from everywhere, and the Canadian community is different than my country’s. It is very different. I love it!
