Professional, caring teachers! Every teacher my daughter has had in the past two years has worked very hard with us to help her succeed. As a quiet child, she could have easily been ignored and allowed to be a straight C student. However, with the nurturing environment, she is an honor roll student with a growing sense of confidence. I would never leave this district!

There is almost too much to offer at the Greater Latrobe Junior High. The High School is being remodeled, and there is millions of dollars going into that process. We are a very well- off school, and overall is an extremely good atmosphere.

Yes, Latrobe has fancy laptops, and tons of extracurricular activities. However, I, myself, am a student not a parent and I get to see first hand what goes on there everyday. The teachers are very nice. Latrobe is one of the most racist schools in PA though. If you're considering sending your child there, and they are African American, I urge you to reconsider. All students of this descent are hazed with out sympathy at Latorbe. Also, although the school officials will never admit it, a lot of tension exists among the student body, as it does at any school I suppose. Surveys conclude that heavily over 50% of students grades 10-12 smoke/drink on a regular basis. Drugs have been a problem in Latrobe. In conclusion, it's certainly not like it is in inner cities here. In general it's a extremely protected school. But consider the facts, and decide accordingly.

I have had more than my share of problems with Greater Latrobe school. They have let my child struggle. I have had to do my own tutoring, or seek outside help. The only way she receives help is for me to call the school and 'get on their case'. The amount of bullying that goes on in these schools is unbearable and I want to leave the district.

This school must be great because my child comes home every day with a smile on her face and her grades are outstanding. She nor I have ever had a single complaint about the school. just like in elementary school parents such as me have the option of going to an open house event and you are able to meet your child's teachers, peers' parents, and see how the school works. I give this school two thumbs up!
