As a graduate of Greater Latrobe, I can attest to the fact that I did go to a pretty good school, but not the best. The overall appearance of the school makes you feel like you go to a glamorous, sophisticated, yet fun High School. The new sports complex, Creative Commons area and wide variety of artwork that is spread throughout the school conveys this. This school WILL prep you for college. The class material is something a bit more difficult than other schools, but after starting college, I have noticed how much Greater Latrobe has taught me. I was tutoring students who were attending the same classes as me, whether it was Math, English, History, or Computer Technology when I got to college, and surprisingly to my college classmates, I did very poorly in high school. They will expect a lot from you and not all staff is nice and helpful.

Attending GLHS is like walking through an art museum every day with the hallways lined with precious works of art. The academics are challenging and the teachers are respectful of every student. They are truly interested in every aspect of a student's life, often helping with academics on their own time, providing the necessary support for all students. The administration is friendly and completely interested in offering a positive learning environment. EVERY student is valued.
I really enjoy the size of the classes and the relationships I have built with my teachers and fellow classmates. I believe that our courses are very challenging and will help me to get into a good college. I think they should lighten the amount of homework given to students because most of us have other things outside of school such as sports, jobs, and extra-curricular activities.
