Roxbury Latin, an all-boys' 7-12 school located in West Roxbury, Massachusetts (a section of Boston), ranks among the best private schools in the nation. Founded in 1645, the school now has a need-blind admissions policy, which means it can accept a socially and economically diverse collection of boys without regard to their need to pay. As a result, the school has a diverse student body--35% of the students represent diversity--that achieves top academic results. Read more about Roxbury Latin.
