    ^^ Haha same here.

    Mind you, we only had 20 kids in our grade so... :

    When you laugh when people ask if you eat in a cafeteria. (We didn't have one).

    When still three years later you know everybody's full name, birthday, favorite color, favorite food, etc.

    When no matter what happens, the whole grade gets punished.

    When you have to pay for the bus.

    I don't go to private school but I live near one...
    I know it's a private school when the parents line up in a carpool to pick up their kids
    When the students drive cars that cost more than my parent's cars
    Etc.
  • liv3yourlif3liv3yourlif3 Posts: 154Registered User Junior Member
    haha we don't even have a bus.

    when only 1 or 2 people run for class president.

    when everyone complains about how much they hate it but if given the chance, would never leave

    When you go to your home soccer/basketball game against a public school and your fellow students use much fouler language than the public team. At least, in my rural area, the private school students usually have really dirty mouths.

    when you go to Target/Walmart/Bestbuy loops for free!

    when watching movies as a hall is all you do during weekends.

    when "public schooler" is derogatory.

    ^^^ hahaha good one d4r7h3v1!

    have to agree.

    When gossip takes approximately 2.54 minutes to cross the entire school.
    When brands like "abercrombie" and "hollister" are considered too low because everyone else wears "polo" and "burberry".
    When everyone goes to spain and morroco for holidays and you're considered poor if stay in town.
    When social gatherings are meets at hookah bars.
    When at home games, the people toss around a huge beach volley ball with the school mascot printed on it in gold.

    ^^ Oh the gossip factor. Like how after 10 minutes you can have a kid 5, 6, 7 years younger than you come up and ask you about something your closest friend "swore" she'd never tell. Haha.
  • liv3yourlif3liv3yourlif3 Posts: 154Registered User Junior Member

    I feel really bad for you guys if these are true...
  • freedomfighterxyfreedomfighterxy Posts: 254Registered User Junior Member
    I would say that most of them are true. About 98% of sophomores has their own car at my school (1300 people total).

    You know your at a private school when you hear "for Christmas I only got a Iphone, a new car, a PS3 and a Wii... what happened to the trip to Jamaica over spring break?" Next day the kid says their only taking a luxury cruise during spring break, and everyone feels sorry for them.

    I missed one,

    You know you go to private school when a friend ditches a day of school so they can study 12 hours of physics.
  • liv3yourlif3liv3yourlif3 Posts: 154Registered User Junior Member
    hisgrace- nahh its great. ive gone private and public and love private

    Victoria- the football thing- SO TRUE!

    you know you go to private school when everyone thinks you're snotty and rich before considering that you might also be smart.
