Forget public schools vs private schools. If I were in high school or middle school again, I would drop out and enroll in Stanford University Online High School.
- Teaches grades 7-12
- Fully accredited
- Alumni ace their SAT & AP tests
- And routinely get into elite universities
Going to a legacy high school is probably only something you should do if you don’t care about learning or you really want to help subsidize the make-work programs for your local teachers unions.
