I went to a private elementary/middle school. It was a Roman Catholic school that ran Pre-K through 8th grade. I started there in 1st grade and just graduated 8th grade this past June. Let's just say I wouldn't recommend it. It was far too small, which is significantly hindering to both socialization and education. A small school does not allow for the separation of skill levels and therefore I was learning at a far slower pace than I could have. It held back my potential significantly, and that's one big regret of mine. I was also not very happy with the religion aspect of the school later on in the year.
Now I'm going to public school. I'm going from a private school of ~180 kids (in nine grades) to a public school of 1200 kids (in four grades). I'm very excited for the change. The high school I'll be going to, with its size, offers some pretty awesome classes that should provide more enrichment for me and provide more of a challenge (maybe). There also were no sports in my old school, whereas there are dozens here in my new school. I also believe public school is much more lax, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. I know how to properly conduct myself so I don't think I'll run into any problems; if I do, I know I can handle myself in any situation, be it verbal or physical. I'm not concerned about the size difference nor the class difficultly difference. I welcome the change as I know it'll be a wonderful experience for me.
Going to an all Catholic school must've been rough. I can easily say Catholicism is one of the worst religions out there and to go to a school that preaches the stuff all the time, man o man/
Anyway, I don't go to any school! Thehehehehe!!!!!! IM OUT!!!! THANK THE HEAVENS POOR KIDDIES!!!
