    "The teachers here are incredible, and really try to help you succeed. There are some issues amongst students in which teachers are brought in to handle potentially delicate situations but a very secretly intolerant student body often shake up the situation and make it difficult."

    "The teachers at Latin are tremendous. They go out of their way to help students given the intimate academic environment, and they are qualified, enthusiastic, and passionate about what they do. Teachers often develop strong relationships with students by junior and senior year given the frequent meetings not only for classes but also clubs, sports, and other activities. By going to the Latin School of Chicago, students learn better than anywhere else due to the outstanding teachers."

    "I'm going to have great opportunities outside of this school, but there are social situations that are not handled well. They usually result in very ignorant and mean statements. There is a liberal majority, but not as loud as there is a politically, economically, and socially conservative minority. The school attempts to care for everybody, but sometimes the school becomes an uncomfortable place to be an actual (non-ideological) minority."

    "The school its self is unparalleled. The students are offered an independent, intimate, and joyful academic experience that includes rigorous and interesting courses; The teachers truly care and go out of their way to better their students' abilities and minds; The opportunities within the school are endless and are very accessible to new students. Despite all of this, I would have to strongly say that the students at the school are liberally elitist. The population of students is homogenous-- mostly and white and very wealthy. Additionally, a majority of the wealthy, white students feel entitled which leaves some students, especially minorities, to be marginalized and completely excluded, especially in social activities and plans outside of school. The major problem with this is that a lot of Latin students will be friendly in school-- they will say hi, eat lunch with everyone, and also hang out and have conversations in the library and cafeteria all due to the small grade sizes and intimate environment. However, these occurrences are extremely misleading and fake because the environment outside of school is cut throat and somewhat disgusting to be honest. Kids start drinking alcohol in social situations as early as 9th grade and use many kids' homes as a setting for this disgusting behavior; often using a kid for his house and then never communicating again outside of school as if they ate half an apple and threw the rest away in the garbage. Kids are excluded and marginalized from the social scene outside of school despite friendliness and inclusivity in school. Its utterly ridiculous."

    "As an academic institution, Latin is by far the best choice I could have made, but it's still really struggling in emotional and social aspects. Mental health is not addressed as much as it should (not even close), and the financial gap between students creates an awkward environment."
