Latin School of Chicago Reviews

I am an alum who attended middle school and high school. The overall quality of my education was solid and I was prepared academically for both college and grad school. I was destroyed there emotionally though. The teachers and administrators will cut you down and chip away at your self esteem at every opportunity and the students (esp the lifers) are ruthless (even to a “popular” child such as myself). There are issues with drugs, racism, anti semitism and classism. The people who buy their incredible prestige PR should look deeper at their own motivation for choosing this school and think twice before subjecting their child to such abuse...there are far better options if you have or want an educated, kind and happy child.

I have been here for a while and the school is very intriguing. Latin's academics are great, and have helped me in many ways to learn things that I have not been able to understand in previous schools. My only problem is that the social scene is a little bit cliquey and students (including myself occasionally) feel obligated to be sad about being left out. This includes parties of about twenty to thirty kids every weekend that is streamed on social media so others can see. Some students also participate in alcohol and e-cigarette behavior, although that is a minority, it usually is the kids at the parties. But otherwise, I love Latin and I am proud to be a Roman!
Latin has been a great environment. I've been here since the lower school, and the community is amazing. The teachers genuinely care about their students (for the most part), and the kids are generally very supportive. The facilities are amazing, and it has a great location in Lincoln Park. With that said, the diversity is a bit lacking, but the school does a great job of supporting everyone. The school has seemed cliquey at times, but as I get ready to start my last year, everyone is really nice, and I have a great group of friends, not to mention the rest of the grade
