LaSalle High School currently (2008-2009 school year) houses 9th-12th graders. The school day begins at 8:00a.m. and ends at 2:50p.m. LaSalle operates on a rotating schedule. Students are scheduled for seven classes and one seminar period. The seminar period provides a time for students to receive help from teachers, make up tests, attend meetings, or to complete assignments. Class periods are 74 minutes in length and meet twice out of three days. Black days contain periods 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7; White days contain periods 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7; and Gold days contain periods 2, 3, 5 and 6 along with the seminar period. Students are provided a 25 minute lunch break. The campus is closed. Students may leave during this time provided they have parental permission.
LaSalle High School supports dual enrollment for students who meet the criteria. To be eligible, a student must be a junior or senior and must have passed the MEAP tests at the designated level. Students can inquire in the guidance office for more information.
The LaSalle High School Student Service Program encourages and recognizes students who are making significant contributions to the community. Recognition is given by conferring Community Service Honor Cords each year at graduation. This is a voluntary program that recognizes students for contributing time and energy for the betterment of their community by participating in activities that provide services that help to improve the quality of life for others. Guidelines have been established and more information can be found in the guidance office.
Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) is figured on a 4-point scale, with 4 being the highest and 0 the lowest. For formal class ranking purposes and for official transcripts, G.P.A. calculations are rounded off to the nearest 1,000th. Honors classes are offered and a grade point adjustment is made on the final transcript. The classes designated as honors classes are Advanced Mathematics, Calculus, Chemistry II, Honors English, Physics, Anatomy/Physiology, and Advanced Placement Courses. Following each marking period, students who achieve high academic standing are placed on the honor roll. To be an honor student, one must maintain a "B" average for academic work. Grades from all classes are used. A grade of "D" or "E" in any class excludes a student from honor roll status regardless of the average. Only those students who carry a regular load of five subjects are eligible to make the honor roll. The St. Ignace P.T.O. (Parent/Teacher Organization) gives honor roll coupons to all 3rd-12th graders. These coupons are redeemable for free items in the community such as getting into a sporting event free, a free skate or swim, free soft drink, free bowling, free boat line ticket, etc.
