A school which children attend by either paying fees or through scholarships. Despite what many people think, many people of many different cultures and races attend these schools, and contrary to most peoples beliefs are not stuck up, fake, snobbish and self centred. In fact, many people are fairly poor because they choose to give their child a private education, because they believe education is the most important thing. Many people have images in their head which are extremely stereotypical, and are only true in very rare cases. These people do not know what they are talking about and if they took the time to look around a private school, their views would change.
Mum can we rent a DVD tonight? No sorry dear, we cant afford it because all the money is going towards your private school fees.
A private school is a type of school that people seem to think is only inhabited by rich, white, preppy, blonde, snobby boys and girls.
Well, it's not.
-There are children that go to private schools that get there from working for it and getting scholarships.
-There are children that go to private schools that have creative talents such as acting, painting, writing, etc.
-There are children in private schools that have gone through the exact same life experiences as children in public school.
-There are children in private schools that don't think they're better then everything, and in fact they think the complete opposite.
-There are children in private schools that have intense family problems.
-There are children in private schools that know how to speak intelligently without saying the word 'like' in between every other word.
-There are children in private schools who still have there natural hair color.
-There are children in private schools that don't enough money to buy high-end clothing because their parents spend all the extra money, that isn't for necessary things like food, on the school's tuition.
-There are children in private schools that are Black, Asian, White, Hispanic, Native-American, Indian, and any other race/ethnicity you can think of.

A form of education that, rather then provided by the federal government, is privately directed and must be paid for. Although the majority of the kids that go to these schools are white and relatively well off there is a large group of private school students who sacrific many luxeries to have a private education. Contrary to popular beleif, most of the kids who go to these schools are hardworking, inteligent, thoughtful, kind, and caring kids. All the schools are not all mono-sex, in fact most of them are not. They are not only for the rich and preppy. These schools are for kids that would like to have an education molded for them personally by a small group of inteligent people, rather then the government of The United States. So, please, rather then jump to conclusions about the kids and the schools actually find out about the places and we private school kids will do the same for public school.
Public school kid: O, private school are filled with preps and rich kids kids who never have to work for anything.
Private school kid: Public school is for people from the ghetto. None of them can complete a full sentence.
Me: Cant we all just... get along?
id just like to say that private schools arent for the snobby, rich fucked up retards that seems to be the image that some people portray. most private school kids get to that school by working extremely hard. they go through the same experiences as other kids. they get bullied, they get into fights, and they get into trouble. lots of the families give up luxuries like holidays in order to pay for the school fees. I admit there are some private school kids who are complete nerds and rejects who spend every waking minute of their free time reading or doing homework, but they make up a very small minority of the school. i myself whent to a state primary school and a private secondairy school and i can say there is very little difference. i have friends from state and private schools and they are all perfectly normal. so all those sterio types who go on about private kids having every thing set up for them and dont have to work a they in their life you are wrong close minded bad people who should try a little empathy in their lives.
hey there's my mate from the private school down the road.
A place to escape from the evil government conspiracy
to brainwash public school students into being emotional wrecks, dependent on the Man
and ready to waste their life in a factory or cubicle.
Praise Jesus! My family has enough money (barely) to send me to private school and save me from the Man!
Kids who attend private schools are NOT stuck-up rich white kids.
We are almost just like kids in public school
There are many different ethnicities in each and every school that I know of, including mine.
Sure, there may not be a large number of kids in each class, but that is important to getting a good education.
You may think that kids in private school are extremely rich, and able to get whatever they ask.
Well, you're wrong.
Sure, some are rich and spoiled, but there are kids like that everywhere. Many students earn a scholarship and are enrolled because of their hard work. Some scholarships, even, are for students who wish to enroll but do not have all the money that they need. The scholarship then helps to pay for the student's tuition as long as they work hard and make decent grades. This, in fact is what your's truely is doing.
However, many kids who are enrolled in private school are not rich at all. Some are just bearly in. Their parents are getting money from every source they can, to the point where they are just bearly getting by at home. About 1/3 of the people I know in Private School are like this.
And you must be asking why these parents are spending so much money on their child to go private instead of public that can be used to help the family.
They care about their child's education.
Think about it, when you become a parent, and it is time to s...
Those who think private school kids are all rich, snobby, white kids with everything handed to them on a platter are wrong. My school is more diverse than the public school that i would go to. There are always exceptions, but I actually have to WORK to be there. My family has sacrificed a lot so that I could go to my a school.The big difference between my school and the public school is that it has a good art program.
Public kid: "Ugh! she goes to a private school she must be extremely rich and snobby"
Private kid's friend: "Umm...actually... she is less stuck up than you are, and has less money too.She works on weekends to help pay for her school's fees."
