It's been two and a half months since I started boarding school, I am 16 and my family lives 17 hours plane ride away. I will be going home in 2 weeks and I am wondering whether I should tell my parents I want to quit. I used to love school, loved lessons, loved teachers and my friends.i left thinking there might be something better out there but now I have become depressed and have to keep tears back everyday, I fooled myself into thinking I would fit in with lots of really rich people. My family and I worked so hard to get here and I feel like I have let them down.
I obviously want to go back home but I don't want to disappoint my family and look like a failure but at the same time I want to be happy and I know that I won't be happy here.
What should I tell my parents and how should I tell them?

Tell them. I feel as though your integrity and feelings are more important to your family than money and being in a boarding school.
If they don't agree to tell them that many people have become rich, happy and satisfied with their lives outside of education and private education.
Tell them that they should be thinking about your feelings, as you are the one living with this every day.
Get a therapist if you think this is needed. (depression and stuff like that.)
