also known as tertiary preparation and usually abbreviated to preparatory school, college prep school, tertiary prep, or prep school) is a secondary school, usually private, designed to prepare students for a college or university education. Most Prep Schools are typically filled with very wealthy children, who grow up and most of the time like 98% of the time, tend to be rich and more successful or as successful as their parents. They at times are called fake and idiots, but infact, they get a badname from middle class wannabe preps. You know the folk who's parents stretched it big by going for a modest 300k- 400k home. These wannabe preps in no way live a lifestyle or the real preps that started out in England many many years ago. the life of high class in all ways is certainly not easy. but by wearing abercrombie and driving a 3 series bmw and thinking your the Sh#t, youd like be a wannabe prep. we all know while their are some great 3 series bmw's. it does not require a ton of money to buy a used 1, nor does wearing abercrombie make you rich. However these wannabe preps most of the time will have more cash than the average joe. Keep in mind their are upscale preps or upscale rich folk who do not live the prep lifestyle, they live in a more modest neighborhood but still nice however their parents plan is to move on to the lake once their children are done with school.
Person # 1-Hey i heard that most people who get into harvard or yale go to prep schools?

Person # 2- this is typically true, as they had the proper schooling, and do great on the SAT plus they graduated from a prestige prep school, and their parents have money and hook up's thus they go major in something such as law or Politics and become leaders of the country and rule our lives.
