Looking for a Preppy School :)

<p>Hi my friend suggested that i use this forum to ask kids about which schools are the preppiest! I really reallly really want to apply for boarding school for the 2011 year the schools that i am thinking of applying to a Deerfield, Choate, and St. George's i am very worried though about which one to choose from becuase i really want to attend a school that will meet my preppy needs, i am very very preppy ( from what all my friends say) and i really want to be in the right enviroment. I personaly think that i am preppy and i want to go to a school that will fully meet my preppy needs, and be the right fit for me, i heard that Deerfield and Choate are the preppiest but i also heard of a few all girls schools that are also very preppy to. Does anyone have some good suggestions on what schools are the preppiest or what schools would be right for ? any very very preppy all girls schools? and how preppy is deerfield?
Thanx :) :)</p>

<p>I would suggest you visit the schools and make judgements on other factors, not how "preppy" a school is. By the way, you spelled both "preppy" and "deerfield" wrong in your username.</p>

<p>just how do you define preppy?</p>

<p>I don't understand why people want to go to a great school just so they can fulfill their need to be "preppy", seems so shallow. You know, the schools you listed above are not easy to get into, if you want to go to a school to be preppy, apply to some other less competitive schools</p>

<p>it's a crapshoot, apply apply and meet your preppy needs. I think Deerfield has the reputation of being the preppiest, Choate, not so much</p>

<p>I personally am not really a prep but Deerfield and Kent really appeal to me.</p>

<p>I'm sorry to be the deliverer of bad news, but if a "preppy" school is where you want to be, I would suggest looking at schools other than those in the HADES catagory. These schools all strive to have diverse student bodies filled with all sorts of people. So if you want to go to a school where everyone is the same in some way (preppy in your case) the HADES schools are not where you belong. :( Sorry to break it to you! </p>

<p>PS. Just FYI: I would say all of the schools you are considering right now are part of the HADES group to some degree.</p>

<p>Actually all the kids that I know at choate are very preppy
And basically any prep school is "preppy". Except for like putney or concord academy</p>

<p>I would recommend </p>

<p>DA
Westy
Kent
Hotchkiss
MX
St.G
Groton
St.pauls</p>

<p>Idk why every assumes people who want to go a "preppy" are stupid and should look
At lower tier schools. Honestly, preppyness factored into my choice. But obviously not my number one
Concern, I assume people think that the OP should look at lower tier because of the blatant misspellings
In her user name, but none-the-less I still don't understand why everyone on "preppy" and such.</p>

<p>I</p>

<p>Indeed Kent is imensley preppy like no joke haha, is SPS preppy because it kind of gives off a preppy look but I'm not sure lol</p>

<p>my name is spelled my name wrong only beause it has to be under 16 characters and i still wanted it to sound and look like preppyfordeerfield :) any whoo so my mom suggested to me this afternoon to look at St. Andrews in Deleware she said w may go and have a campus visit i watch a few videos on there website and it looks pretty preppy does anyone know how preppy St. Andrews Deleware is? Also im kinda thinking of Taft how preppy is Taft anyone know???? i really want to be in the right enviroment in a new school!!!!</p>

<p>st andrews isnt known for being particularly preppy.</p>

<p>does anyone here have any actual first hand experience of being in a preppy school if so i would like to hear from you? or if not possibly second hand experience from a very close friend? i want to know what its like</p>

<p>Prepy - I'm curious. What qualities do you consider "preppy"? And why are these particular qualities important to you? </p>

<p>The reason I ask is, in the strictest sense, "preppy" would apply to any prep school.</p>

<p>The Gunnery seemed very preppy.</p>

<p>you know like preppy..... like a school that has all or almost all full paying applicants, socially elite, abercrombie and fitch that kind of stuff</p>

<p>Loomis Chaffee and Hill seem pretty preppy to me i mind check them out as well but i really like deerfield</p>

<p>better don the asbestos suit !</p>

<p>Images of Jay Gatsby and "new money" immediately come to mind after reading OP's post.</p>

<p>Be sure to tell the person who interviews you that having mostly full pay students who buy their clothes at a particular store is VERY important to you. You'll be fine. Try this particularly at Exeter, Andover, Groton, Hotchkiss, SPS...all the top schools really. It could make all the difference in the success of your application. It will make their jobs so much easier when they know what's really important to you.</p>
