    "As a preface, I will say that although I was involved in most parts of school life at Roxbury Latin, the most important criterion to me is academic rigor. This, Roxbury Latin has in spades. Standouts for me include upper-level French (particularly because of M. Diop) and all Classics courses (Ancient Greek and Latin). Ultimately, Roxbury Latin stands for the epitome of a liberal arts-centered classical education, something which seems to be declining in perceived value compared to STEM education. Although RL has attempted to change with the times and jump on the STEM bandwagon, its efforts have been so far misguided. Still, RL shines as a paragon of excellence in its more traditional offerings, and that is why I give it 5 stars. Other parts of school life are less stellar in comparison. The current headmaster, albeit kind, is hilariously pompous. Although the school is racially and economically diverse, the RL mindset is homogenous and rarely challenged."

    "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."

    "I am a recovering RL alum. Bottom line: If you believe that the best thing for you/your son is to coexist with the same 40 +/- boys for 6 years, most of whom feature parents who believe that college matriculation defines the boy, then RL is a solid choice for you/your son. Daughters? Sorry, this is a males-only club... check recent Ivy League news for more on this male-only club practice. Perfect for the 400 year old culture RL nurtures and protects. Diversity? Of course - just ask the parents lunching in the exclusive private country clubs of western Boston suburbs. RL bombards students with the message that RL students are smarter/stronger/better than non-RL humans. Just ask them about local West Roxbury "townies". Strong fundamental academics & athletics? Definitely. Open-minded humans with a strong sense of the strength of human diversity? Look beyond the rhetoric and draw your own conclusions."

    "Graduated a few years ago. Went to RL from 7-12. Greatest experience of my life. I miss it a lot. The teachers really care about you. The school has a major focus on character which is really important for young boys entering the school at 12 and leaving the school at 18. I believe RL played an instrumental role in developing the person I am today. Going to RL was the best decision I ever made."

    "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."
