I moved six times around the country throughout my Elementary and Secondary educational years, and can without hesitation say that Latrobe was by far the best school I attended. Teachers were dependable and knowledgeable in their fields, while being extremely supportive of their students. While diversity in terms of the students ethnicity/social-economic status is not present, diversity in the curriculum in terms of the types and levels of each subject (science, English, math, the arts) is prevalent. As a sophomore at Penn State, I feel confident in saying that Latrobe more than prepared me for College, and would be proud to send my children to such a fine institution.

The math and science department is this schools greatest strength, if you are in the advanced classes. The English department is probably the weakest I've ever seen. We, like many other parents of college bound students in this district, have had to supplement our child's education by assigning him novels to read and by doing vocabulary at home. The school is trying to get parents more involved in the school after a long history of closing them out.

My Children attend GLSH and like it. They are surrounded by a good group of fellow students. Art is valued at GLSH. The student hallways are lined with professional art pieces, purchased by the student council and a local foundation. Unfortunately, GLSh has a punitive GPA system that can award 3.5 for a final grade of an A. There is no extra GPA help for difficult honors courses. GLSD awards a letter grade to the standardized PSSA test. All in All it's more difficult to acheive a high grade point average at GLSH. The same final grades at any other district would likely result in a higher GPA. Sadly, this discrepancy goes unexplained in GLSH transcripts. The potential to miss out on academic and monetary awards exists. The current administration refuses to change this policy even though it would help the majority of their students and would cost nothing to change.

I attended Greater Latrobe School District all of my life. I feel that my education there more than prepared me for college. I am now entering my senior year of college and I often think back to how fortunate I was to attended Latrobe. I was well ahead of other student in my math, english and science classes. I think the guidance counselors(especially Mrs. Casteel) helped me pick the right University and I am hoping to eventually return to Latrobe so my children can attend. Compared to the other students in my classes, I can not believe how much more I learned and experienced in my years at Latrobe.

Greater Latrobe High School is one of the best in Westmoreland county. They just remoldled so there is plenty of room. During the remoldleing they built a whole building just for the arts section. They have theater, clothing, band, and other art sections such as painting and ceramics. For sports they offer over 20 varsity sports that you can letter in, including baseball, basketball, hockey and football. They also have many clubs including science, math , young republicans and demacrates, foransic league and many others. Over all I would put this at the top of the schools in westmoreland county just because they have strict standards and they offer alot to keep the student busy.
