A school in which the parents pay lots of money so their "little darling" can have the very very best.

This environment manufactures many things, such as, snobbery towards people who are not as economically prosperous enough to go to private school, or feel that they can get an OK education at a state school. Empiricism, shelter, pansyness, and most importantly, a severe lack of life experience, and a belief that the world really is this pretty coddling environment in which people will pick them up, dust them off, and whisper words of encouragement and love in their ears until they feel big enough to carry on.

The delusion is so complete, that most private school girls and boys have no idea that they are deluded, and are conditioned to think that the extremely easy lifestyle they lead is really tough. They say things like, "I'm not rich! We're poor from paying for tution." Not realizing that "poor" is where you cannot eat. And "poor" in the developed countries in which they live, is being in commission housing on the dole. However, this is rarely problematic, as most of them are financially taken care of, and able to continue to lead this easy lifestyle in which they are accustomed outside of school. However, it is occasionally problematic when said child's parents realize their mistake in raising the child accustomed to unconditional goodness, and decide to let it flounder. In which case, it fails miserably.
I go to a private school. I cannot believe the arrogance of the wealthy.

I've seen and been through things these private school kids couldn't even imagine, and they have the nerve to act as if they know more about life than I do.

In the UK, a private school is a school for which the pupils must pay to attend. They are usually home to snobby, stuck up kids with a supiriority complex, even though tuition in such establishments is not much better than in the free alternative.
Very prestigous private schools are known as public schools.
The Art's Educational Secondary School in london is a private school, and Eton is a public school.

A pupil at a private school is known as a private schoolboy/girl, and a at a public school is known as a public schoolboy/girl.

A free school in the UK is known as a state school.

A school which rich kids attend who dont understand the value of money and which daddy gives everything to them on a plate and who believe they are intellectually superior to anybody else.

People who attend private schools are unlikely to come across many ethnic minorities or persons of a lower social class either at school or from the area they live in.

Tend to get ahead in life because of the family they were born into and life chances rather than because of merit.
employer: which school did you go to?
employee: I went to a top private school?
employer: your hired.

I'm not going to ignorantly insult private schools in the U.S.A however I truly believe they are not as good as public.

- It costs money to get in, one idiot wrote a definition and said "Oh they are cheap like 20,000 - 125,000 dollars" news flash retard not everyone has that kind of money

- It stresses the point that money is EXTREMELY important and that nothing else matters

- Full of W.A.S.P's that look down on Blacks, Italians, Asians, and Hispanics.

- They are foreced to wear the same uniforms, conformity much?

- People that do have scollarships have to mantain an A+ average or they get kicked out, imagine hows stressfull that is

- They have a much smaller pouplation of the school, which means less oppertunities for making friends, having big parties, getting to know different people and means that gossip/drama is much greater because everyone knows everyone else's buissness.

- They are used to escape schools with minorities

- They think they are better
Private schools premote racisim, conformity, and ignorance.
*** I am not saying that everyone who goes there is a racist, conformist, and ignorant.

A place where parents send their children because they either because want to waste money or because they think it'll be different from public school, although it isn't. Parents are such idiots.
Joel's going to a male only private school. What a faggot.

Schools that usually provide better education for it's students than most public schools. Admission requires money or scholarships or both; some schools require entrance examinations. Their curriculum is not mandated by the state.

rich white people like it because it's it's full of other rich white people and no minorities to scare them.
You attend private school
