Mathematics

Department Head : Mike Lienhart

Mathematics Philosophy: We, the teachers of the mathematics department at La Salle High School, believe in building learning communities where our students practice and acquire the knowledge of mathematics. We believe students should be able to apply a range of numerical, algebraic, geometric, statistical concepts, and the skills to formulate, analyze, and solve real world problems. These learning communities will assist inquiry, use of technology and exploration of real world phenomena. Our mathematics education seeks to graduate students who will possess a sense of numbers, data analysis, spatial relationships, symbolic representations, and the ability to communicate in the language of mathematics.

Religion

Religion: The purpose of the Religion Department at La Salle High School is to create a climate in the school in which each student can better recognize the presence of God in his life. The challenge of every religion teacher is to help the student find, understand and live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in his life.

Science

Department Head: Chrystel Wells

Sciences: The science curriculum is grounded in the fundamentals of science. All students are exposed to biology, chemistry, and physics. The classes allow students to explore each discipline in an environment that fosters the critical thinking needed for life beyond the walls of the school.

Social Studies

Department Head: Steve Schulten

Social Studies: The Social Studies Department at La Salle High School recognizes the need in a democratic society for a well-informed and articulate citizenry. As Catholic educators involved in the education ministry of the Church at the high school level, the members of the department also recognize the need for a responsible and responsive Catholic laity who are able to contribute sound Christian leadership and values to the society in which they live.
