    I'm also a boarder in an all girls, multinational house, if anyone is curious to what that's like.

    Mine don't, I'm 100% academic scholarship, but I think many people feel special because their parents' pay, yes

    On a more serious note, do you find people irl to be as judgmental about private schoolers as online? I find irl people are a lot nicer and are less "Oh you go to a private school therefore you're loaded af therefore you're a spoilt sh**"

    Not really tbh.

    Makes no difference to me.


    Ok so just describe the basics a bit.

    How prestigious?
    Co-ed?
    Do you board?

    etc

    No, people in real life are much worse, lots of jeering from car windows and eye rolls when you say the school name. I've had a lot of people tell me I'll never understand the real world after this, but many don't realise I've worked for a child's minimum wage since I was 12, and my parents both work in a supermarket, I'm not stuck up

    Hmm perhaps the situation's opposite for me because public British schools don't exist in my country. But that's really stupid.. I'd hate to endure that. For me, my parents' company pays for fees as part of employee benefits but I doubt people would care if I explained that over in the UK :lol:

    I met far *****ier girls in my taster days for the local state schools if I'm honest:') Although several of the extremely wealthy foreign girls are the epitome of annoyingly snobby *****y girls... Very hard to live with!:')
