High School

Is it worth it to go to a preparatory school so you can get into Ivy League Schools?

Preparatory Schools and Friends Schools in my area are very expensive (16,000 plus transportation and random small payments)

How was your experience in high school?

Went to a public school. Had many friends that got into prestigious schools no problem. You just have to work hard.

i go to a public school, just dont bother with private schools. if you really wanna get into a good college, just do really well and try and make honors society.

Only go to a private school if the public schools around you suck. The high school that I go to (public school) is fine. :)

public school is fine, hard work is hard work, AP classes, high test scores and being a minority are all great ways to get into a ivy league school.

If you spend all your money on Priavate school that's a waste of time you'll have none left for college.

I am in high school now, I think it is fine and can land you in nice colleges depending on your activities and involvements  in school academics 

I Love Playing CS:GO!
