It's a school...except with uniforms that most kids find annoying, but are helpful in that you never have to bother about picking out an outfit to wear for the day. Alot of the times the uniform involves khaki pants and plaid skirts, but there's exceptions. There's also religon class and the occasinal Catholic mass that normally takes place in either the school gym or a church located on school grounds. In the morning, the Pledge of Allegiance is said along with a short prayer, and the normal morning announcements.

Also, despite popular belief, there aren't usually nuns walking around hitting children with rulers and no, not everyone who attends a Catholic school is snobby/preppy/stuckup/a self-righteous Catholic/whatever stereotype you can come up with.

Usually, the majority of the student population of a Cahtolic school are of the Catholic faith, but there are Catholic schools that have many non-Catholic students that come from other faiths/no faith at all and are only attending the school because they or their parents think they'll get the best education there.

As for the quality of education in a Catholic school, it all just depends on the student himself/herself. It's up to the student to decide exactly where to be educated, whether it be Home-schooling, Catholic school, Private school, or Public school.

In short, Catholic schools, Public schools, and non-religious Private schools are relatively the same, just with a few differences.

Anne decided to go to Catholic school and was surprised to find a lack of angry nuns and rich,snobby kids and found out it's just a regular school with Catholic elements.

A school with uniforms, and no nuns or priests wandering around the hallways. They have religion class, which is a waste of time becasue half the people that attend catholic high schools don't give a shit about God. Catholic schools are much like normal schools, but, they have better weed and more drunk people at the school dances. People that attend catholic school aren't always catholic.. it doesn't matter, people that work at the school hardly ever believe in God. Religion teachers don't care if you believe in Jesus or not... they just want their paychecks. Catholic Schools are full or stoners, losers, emos, preps, jocks and bitches. So what's the difference between Catholic Schools and Public schools? Catholic schools have SAINT in front of there name, and have God on there side. Public school have satan... according to God.

a catholic school is a school that is 90% white and 10% asian. generally kids cheat their way through and are convinced that they are smart and religious when in reality they're not.
wow kids from catholic school are douche bags.

where parents send their kids because they think that they're getting "the best education" but they really aren't.
