Latin School of Chicago Reviews

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 a comprehensive college counseling program and will encourage kids to cast their net widely in selecting schools and appropriately so, but there does seems to be a palpable parallel move to dissuade some (white kids?) from applying to Ivy Leagues. Because "equity?" One parent told me she felt as if mentioning an Ivy League school with Latin College counseling was akin to using profanity. I've heard other similar stories. Parents are seen as the problem and managed in disparate ways. Parents are hectored and lectured. Exhausting.
I love Latin. The school itself is amazing, and I've made friends I'll know for the rest of my life. I came here as a new student in 9th grade. I would have given the school five stars, but there are about three things I feel that bring the school down in quality. The first thing is that the social scene is atrocious. I am white, but I have noticed that a lot of students at Latin are not very welcoming to students of color. Many of my friends who are POC have told me about how they feel as though they don't belong. Being a girl at Latin is also difficult, there is a select group of boys who talk about us as if we are pieces of meat. The last thing that brings Latin down is the treatment of students with learning accommodations, specifically the math department. I had accommodations for my freshman and sophomore year due to an injury, and both times my math teachers were not understanding of my needs. However, overall Latin is an amazing school. I would recommend it to all.
