I'll take any if the latter two instead of homeschooling. The syllabus might not be up to national standards and requirements, children might not be given Thr chance to participate in as diverse a range of external activities, and even if it's in a group, you don't have the school atmosphere of hundreds of peers.

They all have their benefits... public school exposes students to more diversity and to the "traditional" high school experience, private school is better for the more academically-focused students, and homeschooling is best for a completely individualized learning experience.

Of course there are downsides to all of them, and what I've said is extremely general so obviously there are plenty of exceptions! I went to a private school and I teach at a public school, so this is just the very basics of from what I've gathered over the years!

Private schools are only good if they're need-based financial aid rewarding feeder schools to top universities. Examples: Phillips Exeter, Phillips Academy, Harvard-Westlake, The Harker School.

Then again, public schools are only good if they're nationally recognized magnet schools (e.g. Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Stuyvesant, North Carolina School of Science and Math) OR in Cupertino or Palo Alto up in Norcal (Lynbrook, Monta Vista, Palo Alto, Henry M. Gunn, Homestead.......................and throw in Mission San Jose from Fremont, too).

Otherwise, it's all irrelevant.

I've been home schooled and publicly schooled. I don't know about private schooling, but the better funded the better the teaching, most likely. Home schooling isn't bad, you just need some good resources, and you aren't being schooled all day. But the thing with public schools is that you meet people.

home school: I only have 2 hours of school a day, and I eat whenever.

I was home-schooled, but after starting high school I have been going to a public school.

I like the public school better because you have more incentive to do your work, although some of the classes are stupid.

in my country, home schooling is not very common. most children go to public schools. i studied in a private school my entire life and i have often wondered what it's like to be home schooled though.
