I have gone to a Catholic school my whole life. I HATE it. I don't know if it's the same in all private schools, but the kids in my school are self centered, rude, and EXTREMELY obsessed with popularity. Arent Catholic School supposed to be strict? The teachers care but don't say anything about bullying. I have been bullied to the point where i would cry every night. I was bullied so much where i believed it was okay for them to bully me. I recently just gave up in hiding what they did to me. Best move i made. My advice to anyone being bullied is talk to the idiot who was being mean to you. I'm serious. It feels amazing and it gets them to back off. And if you think that's hard, try being bullied from 1st grade-7th and finally standing up for yourself. And remember: you are beautiful, inside and out don't let anyone make you feel terrible. You are the most amazing person in the world and you're about to show that bully how great you trruly are

I've been gong to private school since i was 2. i think its great. no drama and everyone knows you. My class has 11 people in it and 8 of them have been there since the 2s. Face it, you get a better education and you can hang with your friends later.
there are 2 other girls in my class.
one is a bully and one is a weirdo.
but, talk to other grls in the grade above or below you. you are sure to find friends.
one of my bffs is in the grade below me!

hey, i no exactly how you feel. i used to go to a private school, and there were 18 people in my whole grade. it was really hard to fit in because there were 8 girls and, oh boy did they love to create drama. They used to bully girls out of the grade, and they would all turn on their best friends in a drop of a hat if the leader, call her K, said the girl was unacceptable. Then the guys, 10 of them. Great, right? WRONG! they loved to 'tease' girls about their bodies, and none of them were even cute. Then K would go out with, like every guy in the grade and all of the guys in the grade above. no one liked her, but when i left, she was one of my good friends... but texting her is almost like visiting a distant dream. A dream i never really fit in. When i went to public school, i found that there were at least double the people in the grade at the private school that i fit in with. i visited, and no one would talk to me, like they were all above me. im glad im not one of them now.

I work with The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS for short), a non-profit with more than 300 member schools in both North America and abroad. I read your post about hating your private school and thought you might be interested in checking out TABS at www.boardingschools.com.
If your dad won't let you go to public school, maybe he'd be more open to a different private school--a boarding school that is better suited to your interests.
One of the best ways to check out different boarding schools is to use TABS School Browser. You can enter the school name if you have a particular school in mind, or search by zip code, and even view an A-Z listing of nearly 300 member schools. Each school has its own page and profile with lots of key information, and you can request info from multiple schools at once. It’s quite the time-saver!
