The Roxbury Latin School Reviews

40 reviews
All Categories
It's a historically good school, but it lacks any diversity - most of its students being from working class, catholic families, and it has started focusing too much on athletics. Teachers and administrators seem more focused and interested now in the athletic operations and success of the school rather than the academics.

Roxbury Latin is known for its outstanding teachers and first-rate academics, and this reputation is well-deserved. In addition, "every boy is known and loved." The student body is small; the faculty is small; and the teachers get to know the students in and out of the classroom, and they empower them to achieve their fullest potential as students, athletes, actors, musicians, debaters, artists, etc. It's a wonderful learning community that provides the boys with an intense learning/growth experience that they find incredibly stimulating while they're there, and that leads them to lives of leadership, contribution, impact, and happiness.
On all standardized test metrics the school is ranked #1 in all categories. This is the most objective criteria you can get in terms of the competitiveness of a high school education. The school also has a 'need-blind' admissions policy which assures fairness in terms of admission criteria based on relevant attributes of grammar school applicants. Thus school should unequivocally be ranked No.1 in any bona fide comparative analysis.
