I've never been to a private school put it's nice to go to a public school. I mean you don't have to pay and finding friends is always nice. But if you think about it, we kinda do have to pay for public school, where do you think all those taxes go! Well to the military but to schools too i think. Private schools sound like they suck, i'm actually taking online courses so i don't go to either. It's nice, online courses i mean. You have a whole year to finish one half of the math you take in the first year. You can go at your own pace, really slow or as fast as you want to go... well you have to take at least a week to finish a course. Anyway, i think public school sounds better than private.

I've never been to a public school so technically I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I think it depends on what area you're looking at. Academically I think private/college prep schools are muuuuch harder. I don't say it sound stuck up or something, but there is a lot more work and more is expected of you. Even a public school friend of mine who has attended both agrees.

As for socially, I think they both are hard in their own right. Public school has more diversity so it challenges you're stereotypes and such on a regular basis, but private school can be socially hard for some people if you are a minority or if you go to the school on scholarship because you aren't as wealthy as the people who don't.

I think it's a misconception though that "everyone" at a private school is rich and stuck up, because honestly that's very NOT true. There are tons of work-study and scholarship people who go to those schools are just as wealthy as your regular public school-er!

I went to private school from preschool till senior year and I'd like to think I'm not stuck up. So generalizations = bad!! There are stuck up people in EVERY school!

Edit: Oh I just saw another point someone else brought up. I think public schools and privates generally have the same rules, it's just that private schools enforce them more. Basically they just don't let you screw around, and if you do screw around they call you on it. Not to be annoying or have a power trip, but because they REALLY want you do well. Private school teachers get paid a lot less than public so I'd like to think most of them are there because they really want to teach!

Edit #2 "English is full of religious poems and stories, and ignores Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Jack London, and virtually all of the great writers of history except C.S Lewis, and various other religious authors."
VERY WRONG!!! I went to a Catholic high school and I read at least 3 Shakespeare pieces, 2 Edgar Allan Poe, and many Frost poems! We even had to read a book called "Life of Pi" where the main character claims to be Buddist, Hindu, AND Christian. It's true in some of the theology classes Catholic ideas are very reinforced, but that's the consequence of picking a Christian school! They also had World Religions though so I swear as much as it seems like it, they are NOT trying to shove Catholism down your throat. As long as you're secure in your own thoughts/ideas nothing they could say would "convert" you anyway.


What you say is true. I have never been to public school, but I think they both have their pros and cons of studying there. Students who go to private schools are basically to take over their parents' businesses or own your own business which seems a bit weird, if you ask me. Now I sound like a hypocrite. GREAT.
