    "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."

    "This school is great. Everything is great. I would give it 5 stars if not for the food. The Food used to be great but the last few years its gone down in quality and variety and in general its BAD. Wish I could have given it a 5"

    "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."

    "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."
