boarding school is a place where parents ship off their own kids. don't get me wrong going away prepares kids for college more than any other place. you have life changing experiences but many times the kids 80% of the time feel completely abandoned. most of the time its just a bunch of flithy rich kids,once in a while you will find a kid on financial aid that slips through the cracks, and ends up feeling like an outcast because they can't keep up with the rich kids. many kids are secretly suicidal because of the pressure to get into a good college, get good grades. and really smart people are outshined by even smarter ones. drugs and alcohal are used alot the schools have no idea. many students from prep school go to colleges like columbia and Harvard. if your going to go to boarding school go to one in Connecticut.. i mean it is the richest state in the nation. duh
