Jalan Sekolah La Salle is a minor road in the Batu Gantong neighbourhood of George Town, Penang. It commemorates the now defunct La Salle School. Occupying the La Salle School property is its successor, the St Xavier's Primary School, as well as Shang Wu Primary School. Both La Salle and St Xavier's were established by the La Salle Brothers, a group of Catholic missionaries.
Although there is no La Salle School in Penang today, the name Jalan Sekolah La Salle lives on. The road is in two parts, separated by a bottleneck which is passable only by pedestrians and motorcyclists. That bottleneck is a bridge across the canalised Sungai Air Itam.
The nearest bus stop to reach the southern part of Jalan Sekolah La Salle is on Jalan Air Itam. It is served by Rapid Penang bus 201, 202, 203, 204, 306 and 502. The northern portion is ten minutes away from the bus stop along Scotland Road, which is served by Rapid Penang bus 304 and 306.
