2007 Graduate I looooove my alma mater! All the schools in Latta got me to where I am today! I love the staff ( Rebecca Gaddy and Melissa Kirk Cook are awesome). Each if the schools in Latta bring rigor to the curriculum which well prepares the students to the next level. I would advise any parent out there to send their kid to Latta High.

Latta High School, in my opinion, is one of the best schools in the state of South Carolina. The academics are top-notch, the athletic teams are very competitive, and the feeling of community in the school is unmatched. I would recommend it to anyone. As a former student who is now a college freshman, I can say that I was well-prepared for higher education, and most of the people who gradated with me would agree that Latta helped mold them into productive citizens. Latta High School is truly a special place.
