Boston Latin Academy Reviews
Don't like the school, rude people and teachers who don't choose on you when you have questions and then ask you why are you failing this class. Nope, not doing it.
I am currently in this school, and although it is challenging, you get a lot out of it if you care. It really depends on the type of teachers you have and how hard they push you. If they push you, and you put in the effort, you really will get a lot out of it. The previous two students obviously got the bad batch of the teachers and did not want to handle the extra work. You have to understand that it is a college prepatory high school, not just another public school. if they think they can just get by while in honors and AP courses, then obviously, they're not getting the point of a college prepatory exam school.
I hate it. They stress their kids out like their grown, its rediculous, the teachers there are ignorant and rude and honestly could care less about their students.
Boston Latin Academy is the worst school I have ever been to. I hate it, I graduated with a 4.0 but that has nothing to do with them. They are terrible at teaching. I will never send my children there when I get older. The teachers are stuck up, and the ISEE test is the worste part of it, they will not let you get into their school, unless you pretty much have a hundred on the test, it's pathetic, good luck, but don't get your hopes up.
Boston Latin Academy is a great school and very challenging but the key is to stay organized!
Love BLA!! Great school and my child is doing well. Wonderful teachers and staff. A little hard and challenging but they make sure that the students meet any and all expectations.
Boston Latin Academy is a great school that children should whish to get into!
