Where did YOU take most of your K-12 education? Public School, Parochial School, Private/Non Religious School, at home, or Private Boarding School or Home Schooled?

We both went to public schools from K-12, but were wondering what the demographics look like for the rest of the EF "family"?

I went to public school in *the* best district in my state. I wish I had gone to a charter school or a private school. I think if I had, I probably would have gone off to college or at least seriously considered it.

I went to a charter school for 6-7 grade, and from 8-12th I went to a christian based private school.

From K-3 I went to a very small Jewish private school but switched to public school for 4-12. I was really happy with the switch - not because I didn't like my school before, but there were sooo many more kids to interact with. My private school was really small, we're talking under 50 kids in the entire K-6 school.

My private school was also VERY small. The school was a k-12th and with all the grades, there was about 100 students. I personally loved it. It made learning very easy.

My children are homeschoold to highschool level and then enrolled in an online format so that they have the transcripts and ability to take courses I may not feel qualified to teach (like higher maths).

My Mother didn't have the availability to do this for my Sister and I so we endured the DODS system for many years before being dropped into regular public school.

I went to public school until the end of 8th grade, then private school for a year. Beginning in 10th grade, I open enrolled in a different public school because they had college grants for every graduating student.

10 years of public with one year at a private school. That was for 5th grade, I honestly think my mom sent me there because that year we had sex-ed. Little did she know I was well versed before that. lol

I went to public school grades K-12. I really wish I had been home schooled, through those 12 years I always felt like I didn't really belong.

Pre-K-8 at private religious schools. I spent up until 3rd grade at a large Christian school that was pre-k - 12, then went to a really small Catholic school. My graduating class was I think 17 including myself, and then I went to a public high school where my graduating class was closer to 900 or so.

public school all the way. my parents were teachers & administrators, so all 6 yrs of elementary school (K-5) my mom worked at my school, no parents in middle school, & no parents in high school. but my dad worked at my high school for quite a few years before i got there, so there were a lot of teachers & administrators that knew him. it was a pain b/c since everyone i went to elementary school w/ knew about my mom (she taught special ed when i was in elementary school, now she's an assistant principle at another elementary school), & since my dad was a councilor at one of the other high schools, all the high school kids who had jobs knew my dad. I WASN'T SAFE ANYWHERE! lol

My elementary school life was spent in a private convent all-girls school, hate the strict rules, but found most of my best friends there. The rest was in public schools.

Public schools the whole time. I don't think there was a private school within 100 miles of my parents' place.

Public schools for me, as well. (Doesn't the term "public school" mean the equivalent of our (US) private schools in the UK?)

I went to public school but was absent a lot due to traveling with my family. However, I completed all school work and was never held back.

private school. My high school had a lot of college level classes, so by the time I graduated I had almost 2 years of college credits.

I went to a private Christian school (that was run by a local Baptist church) from kindergarten through 12th grade.

I had a mix of schools. K-4th I went to public schools, 5th & 6th I went to a private non religious school, 7th & 8th I went to a private religious (fundamentalist christian) school, 9-12th I went to a private non-religious school.

I think I got the best education at the private non-religious school but the public school was the easiest to fit in and make friends at.

I went to a public school, but in retrospect it kind of seems like a placebo-education (except AP chemistry. That was an excellent class and I still refer to what I learned in it, all the time). I definitely learned most of what I know either helping my parents work in the summer, reading during the winter (and usually reading during most of my classes, actually).
