Basic Education High School (BEHS) No. 2 Latha (Burmese: အခြေခံ ပညာ အထက်တန်း ကျောင်း အမှတ် (၂) လသာ; abbreviated to အ.ထ.က (၂) လသာ; formerly St. John's Convent School;[1] commonly known as Latha 2 High School) is one of the most well known public high schools in Myanmar. Located in Latha Township opposite the Yangon General Hospital and next to the University of Medicine 1, Yangon, the all-girls school[2][3] offers classes from Kindergarten to Tenth Standard (until Grade 10 in the new nomenclature).

The school's colonial era building is a landmark protected by the city.[4]

Kyi Phyu Shin created many videos and movies including "Little stars of future" (Burmese: အနာဂတ်ရဲ့ ကြယ်ပွင့်လေးများ) movie.
