A prestigious examination school located in Boston, MA in the United States. It was the first public school in the U.S., founded in 1635. Originally a male school in which potential Harvard graduates could prepare for college, it was later eliminated its gender restrictions. To enter the school, one must pass the ISEE exam, either in 6th grade or 8th grade. Although praised for its contemporary and classical education, as well as for the high test scores students achieve on exams like the SAT, the school has a number of faults. Among them are poor teachers, excessive amounts of work, and most notably its scholarships (limited to the top 5% of one's class). Among the finer things are the excellent teachers, both in personality and in teaching style, an extensive music department, and a number of interesting and fun clubs and extracurricular activities. The school mascot is the wolf, based on the she-wolf in the myth of Romulus and Remus's raising. Boston Latin originally had seen amazing numbers of students being accepted into the highest ranked colleges, by little more than name alone. But in much more recent years, the title of the school will not help one get accepted even into UMASS Boston.

Boston's Loser School. More commonly known as BLS. It is known widely for it's horrible sports teams, which is the result of hours upon hours of homework, thus, making any of it's students that bother to do it weak and frail, due to lack of sunlight. Students enter in the 7th grade, happy, hopeful, and ready to go, but leave the 12th grade (if they stay) with nothing to show for it other than a few cheap articles of clothing with BLS and a purple paw on them.
