    "There is a new curriculum being implemented based on the SPLC Teaching Tolerance and it is their main priority. Academics are now a low priority. Diversity and inclusion is now the main focus. It all sounds warm and fuzzy until you realize that your child isn't learning anything except social causes. Be warned."

    "Students and teachers are warm and inviting. Everyone always has a smile on their face. Classes are engaging and fun, they push you to think about the world from a different perspective."

    "As a new student as a freshman, I was welcomed very warmly in the community. The staff is amazing and will help you through any problem you have, whether it's in or out of school, and the same applies with students. Diversity lacks in a 70%-ish white school, but what I like the most about this school is that they don't care about your race, ethnicity, religious background, etc. They see you as a fellow student of the Latin School of Chicago."

    "I loved the emphasis on academics here and the wide range of classes offered and the high level at which they were taught. As someone who thoroughly enjoys sports, I wish they would improve upon that aspect of the school."

    "Latin is going through a jarring transition, both socially and academically. Despite claiming to have a focus on academics, it is surprising to have learned the Lower School reduced the amount of hours per week of Spanish for its students. By contrast, gym class, as well as "critical" morning & closing meetings increase in time. Languages are a fundamental part to understanding & integrating cultures how can it be these are sacrificed for gym? Socially, as a caucasian father, I feel my family's opinions do not count, unless, of course it is fundraising time. The community is divided and not everyone is treated equally/fairly. Parents questions/concerns often go unanswered. Top administration lacks solid partnership with parent body. Latin lacks an ethical school culture. I feel as if Latin is going through an identity crisis in which solid leadership (Board, Head of Schools and certain Division Heads) is lacking to straighten this sinking ship. Latin appears to be Dunn. "
