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!

I have attended the Latin School of Chicago from grades JK-Senior year. The education is phenomenal, and the facilities are great. The teachers foster and intimate setting where learning is fun and easy, and the offered resources are bold enough so that the only thing keeping you from prospering is yourself.
However, the school's developing initiative for diversity and college readiness is still on the way. The college counseling office is not willing to listen to the students as much as their own agenda sometimes, which is why plenty of students seek out of school or independent guidance in the process. Nevertheless, every year the secondary institutions that are attended are fantastic.
I absolutely love the inclusive, rigorous atmosphere at Latin. The administration as well as the whole student body are extremely caring of one another and constantly look to bring out each other’s best. Weather that be in liberal arts, sports, or academics.
