As a Grandparent of Students at Charlotte Latin, I cannot say enough good things about Charlotte Latin. The school runs so smoothly, the teachers are skilled, friendly, caring and devoted. The environment is nurturing and caring for each child. The size is large enough to allow plenty of interaction (about 4 classes each grade?). The school is very current in its use of technology. The facilities are amazing. I was inspired to write this review after the Middle School had its 2014 December Holiday Musical Performance, which I could not have enjoyed more if it had been a professional performance at Carnegie. Kudos to the devoted, skilled teachers and staff, and the students who were focused and on point. I was amazed at the inclusion of so many students in such an outstanding performance. These quality performances surely prepare the children for their life performance.

Latin is probably the best school, academics-wise, that you could go to in Charlotte. The college admissions program is great and starts early. It's fairly competitive but not in a destructive way, and they don't publish class rank. You are generally friends with people who make the same grades as you. Socially, it's a small school. Everyone knows everything about everybody, and everyone's talking about it instantly. You get used to it. It's hard to start Latin as a freshman (I've been here since kindergarten) because it's very tight-knit. Focus on fitting in at first; don't try to start drama or anything to set you apart. The last issue I'll address is the honor code, which is a huge deal. No one cheats and it's a big deal when someone does. You just drop your backpack going to lunch and there aren't locks on lockers. It might seem weird to new students.

This is the best school you can go to. I still go to Charlotte Latin and I love the involvement and friendliness of the teachers. The subjects and things we are able to do are amazing and I have been so blessed to be able to go to this school. I don't think there is a school out there that can have more than CLS.

I graduated from CLS in 2009. I can honestly say that Latin taught me unbelievable principles and showed me the best thirteen years of my life. The teachers, students, and parents all feel like family, and the opportunities I was presented with were unbeatable. You would be hard-pressed to find a school as wonderful as Latin.

We moved to Charlotte in 1998. Our 6th grade son was accepted into Latin and it was the best thing for him. His 6th grade math teach caught a reading disability that would never have been found. My two daughters were in Catholic elementary schools. We liked the MACS system, but found Latin to be a better fit. The sports and extracurricular were an integral part of the mix. All three kids were accepted at great colleges and all went to their 'first' choice. It was expensive but well worth it. Parents at the school are really dedicated.

I attended Latin K-10. Leaving was devastating, as it was all I'd ever known. The facilities are beauitful-such an incredible campus. Excellent teachers. Definitely tough curriculum. My whole family is a huge Dr. Fox fan (he was the previous headmaster.) Latin has instilled in me lifelong integrity and honor. Great sports and fine arts programs. If the student body were any smaller, the diversity would be really compromised. Can be tough socially and academically (very competitive atmosphere at times) and the parent politics gets old, as w/ all HS and private schools, but if given the opportunity to do it again, I'd do it all the same. I feel very blessed to have the foundation I've been given at CLS.

Charlotte Latin is by far the best school in North Carolina. More students here earn top scholarships than any other private school. The facilities are also the best in the state. Best students, best families, best staff and best administration. Where you go if you want the finest education for your child.

We have a 3rd grader that has been at CLS since kindergrarten. The school is fantastic. The teachers have always been open to dialouge with the parents on any issues. The cirriculum is challenging but not over the top hard either. Just the right mix. The Headmaster instills values from the top down that impacts students AND parents. For example, they are aware that cliques can form even in these early years and they stay on top of potential social issues and nip in the bud. Including calling parents in to discuss things if necessary. They expect excellence without creating pressure for the student a perfect balance. Highly recommend!

Our three children were educated at Charlotte Latin and I feel like the school helped us raise them! There are so many positive comments I could make about our family's time at Latin. Most importantly, the values that we instilled in our children at home were reinforced at school. Administration and faculty were readily available to our children and to us. Highly recommend CLS!

After watching siblings attend this school, I can tell that it has a great social atmosphere. However academically, this school is pretty much on the same level as a public school. It all depends on what you want to pay private school tuition for- but if you're expecting something more than you'd get at a good public elementary like Beverly Woods, you're going to be disappointed.

Charlotte Latin not only has great teachers, but it also is a welcoming and caring environment. I am a student at Charlotte Latin and although the classes are fairly difficult the teachers are always willing to help the students, no matter what. When new students come to the school, the other students are always eager to meet them. My grade is about 100 students, which allows everyone to know each other. I love my school and I look forward to going to school in the mornings.

This is, by far the best private school on the east coast. The faculty is great, and fair. And all of the students follow what is called the Honor Code.

Charlotte Latin has given me fabulous preparation for the demands of college. The faculty are enthusiastic about their jobs and moral values are highly stressed. The extracurricular activities are vast and appeal to all sorts of talents. Whatever your child enjoys, it is sure to be nourished and appreciated by the faculty. There are roughly 100 students per grade who had known eachother for their entire lives (CLS is a PK-12 school). It is hard for a student to hop into CLS during middle or high school and break into this tightly-knit social group. Some students have to cope with an unsatisfactory or nonexistent social life. Some even left for these reasons during my time there. My recommendation is to put your student into the school atleast by grade 5, so he or she can become close with 15 to 20 of their peers in the same year. It would help greatly.

I am a student at Charlotte Latin. I have been there my whole life (since Pre-K) and have loved every minute of it. Latin has given me so many opportunities and room to shine that I know I would not have received at other schools. In addition, the I have found mentors in many of my teachers. The teachers go beyond just giving you a great education in the classroom, but become your trusted friend. I would strongly recommend Latin to any student and I know that my parents feel the same way.
