The studies reflected that the public school students often started off a little behind because they weren't used to the academic rigor, however, by the end of the four years they had either caught up or passed their "better prepared" peers because they hadn't really been pushed or challenged as much in the past, and hadn't yet reached their academic potential. This stood out in my mind because I have always been a public school advocate (still am). I do think there are MANY benefits to attending a private school, and many of them are non-academic.
