Did you attend any years of private school during your K-12 education, or was it public school all the way?

Private school K-12. That's why I just graduated MIT with a 4.0, going to buy a Mercedes and make more money than you.

Funny how LA & MS are purple. They have some of the worst public education systems in the nation! People will take 2-3 jobs just to pay for their kids to go to private schools. Also, the. Teachers take a $10,000 pay cut to teach in a private setting also.

Kindergarten wasn't as ubiquitous when I was a child. If you wanted your kid to attend it, you had to do so privately. So I did attend a private kindergarten, but then attended public school from first grade to twelfth.

Private from 1st-5th. I hated it.

Private then public.

With my own kids, definitely prefer private.

Unfortunately public. Would never put my child through such a bias incoherent learning experience again.

I had one horrible year of traditional private school and I was the only gothy kid there. They LITERALLY called me their "little class pet" ????

I've gone to Catholic school my whole life. I'm at an all-girls high school now and I love it! I hope to attend Catholic college if I can afford it.

Private high school was my only option

07/08/13 8:37 pm

I attended a charter school in the fourth grade (which did nothing for me except introduce me to smoking pot) so ill go with public.

Back when I was young public schools didn't provide kindergarten so I went to a private 1/2 day one. My daughter attended our local public school system & was Valedictorian. My son attended public, private & Christian schools before getting his GED.

Private from 2nd-grad. Best decision my parents could have made. Graduated with a class of 16:all were (and still are) like family.

I went to public school from k-6 (elementary school) and then private 7-12. I was weary about switching schools but looking back, it was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Definitely sending my kids to a private school.
