I used to in Houston and then I moved to Austin where I go to a public school. The public school's Pre-AP courses are just as hard as the private school's classes. I can't take AP until junior year though.

I go to a private high school. It is okay. I've gone to private school all my life. Even my preschool was a catholic one. The only differences (IMO) are that it is much more expencive, we have a church attached to the building, we take Theology class, and we say a prayer in the morning.

I attended public school for 9 years, and now Im in a private HS. I must say, the quality of my education has improved drastically, there are much less distractions, and my grades are great. How can a school that has 21 national merit semifinalists (out of 1100 boys, the state average is about 3 for a school of 1500) go wrong?

I attended an all male boarding school in my high school years. When you share one large room as a 15 year old with 25 other boys, there sure aren't many secrets. At the time, I didn't like it. No girls, hard work, etc. But I made the best friends for life in those years.

I have attended an Adventist private school my entire life, and know nothing different. It is true that private schools do have "snobby, asshole, mammas-boy rich kids" but, not everyone who attends them are like that. But that is the general steriotype of private schools. I have enjoyed my years at private schools but would like a change. One can only handle so much.

I have gone to private schools my whole life, for grade school, I am going to a prep, been there since first grade and like it pretty well, for school. I don't like how they keep tightening down on the uniform over the years though.
Leftseat86- I can't believe how wrong you are. I have seen those types at public schools also. I don't want to start an argument here, but if your public school is like the my city's public school system, you all get half as much homework as us(private school kids). I have had teachers who used to teach at public schools, and they said the exact same thing that I just said(this is where I got my info from). Also, some private schools offer financial aid(my school has the largest financial aid program in our city). Yes, you can be right about the spoiled, mamma's boy, stuck up rich kid. Believe me, my school has a lot of them. Just as an assumption on what you are thinking, it is probably not as many as you think.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Yes I go to a private Catholic school in Dublin and the standard of teaching is incredibly high. Without the dedication of many of the teachers i wouldn't have got the 8 A's that I did in my State exams. Some very dedicated people. http://www.belvederecollege.ie - thats the website
