De La Salle High School (New Orleans)

De La Salle High School is a co-educational parochial high school in New Orleans, Louisiana.

De La Salle is part of the New Orleans parochial school system. It was originally opened in 1949 as an all-boys school. However, the school began accepting girls in 1992, and it is today a co-educational Catholic high school.

The school's mascot is the "Cavaliers," and its school colors are maroon and white.

The campus of De La Salle High School is located in Uptown New Orleans near the University District, at the intersection of Saint Charles Avenue and Jefferson Avenue, between Saint Charles and Prytania Avenue.

It should also be noted that De La Salle was the first High School to open in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. The school opened its doors to high school students from schools all across the city and surrounding areas.
