    "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. "

    "A school should inspire curiosity & thirst for learning. Latin has turned into an institution that tells students what to think, not how to think. It s wrong to hear students say they know when to "keep their mouths shut" because of teachers' differing views. Biased teaching is not preparing students for the real world, rather it strips them of freedom of thought, weakening their real world perspective. The administration, including Head of School continues to ignore bullying that exists across all divisions within the student, faculty & parent bodies. I feel my children are targeted for who they are and do not feel they are fully safe. Members of the community feel they can't truly be themselves without being unfairly treated. This is only underscored by allowing biased organizations to script curriculum. If you are looking at Latin, seriously consider another as this school's academic legacy appears to be slipping quickly."

    "Latin is average at best in terms of academics, especially as it does not fully value diversity... diversity of thought is not respected. As a parent, I feel that my children and I can't be our true selves for fear of not being liberal enough. The administration has allowed mental bullying to occur across all divisions, within the student, faculty and parent bodies."

    "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 went here for high school and I had the worst time of my life. I got bullied by the students and the teachers never helped me. I would try to go get help but there was nowhere I could go. The teachers made me incredibly uncomfortable. I don't recommend this high school for most students, it is filled with cliques, and it is very hard to make new friends. I felt extremely uncomfortable there as a new student and I urge this school to work harder on making new students more comfortable."
