Would you consider all private school people “rich snobs” ?

Hey, I’m applying for private schools (not catholic or uniformed, just prep schools) for next year… From what I heard, a lot of the people who go there have parents who are CEO’s, presidents, and just plain rich and their children are snobbish and wear the most expensive brands. My parents have successful careers (thus allowing tuition) but i dont wear locoste or have coach bags or any of those rich things.

Would this make me not fit in, in prep schools?

Yeah, sure… some kids are really wealthy. Most parents are "somebody’s", most wear designers, but their no snobs.

Obviously you’ll get one or two who think they’re everything, but my family is pretty wealthy, I wear designer labels… but I also wear other labels. I don’t mind shopping at a target or something.

Honestly, Coach is not designer, so it is pretty popular since it is relatively affordable, but other than that no one cares about logos or anything.

Again, you’ll get one or two people who think private school people are snobs and they themselves act like snobs, but that’s it. Everyone else is normal. You’ll fit in, trust me :)

I have SOOO many friends on scholarship who could care less about labels! No one’s going to say "Ew! Your not wearing Lacoste! Your not very popular!" Personality comes WAAAY before money!

A non uniformed, non religious school is exactly like a public school, accept with fewer people in the classes, so it’s a friendlier and more welcoming environment!

    prep schools give lots of scholarships out so no i dont think they all are rich snobs, but it depends on the school. i know that private schools like catholic are def not rich snobs i go to one and its more middle class not upper class or anything. most of the ppl at prep schools are probably upper class but some r lower middle class. i think you would fit in just fineReferences :

    Typically prep schools have students from a variety of backgrounds. Some families are very wealthy, some *Obama rich* (attorneys, doctors) who aren’t really rich at all – make just enough to pay tuition – too much to qualify for aid, and some middle and lower income families who likely receive financial aid.

    At many of the prep schools in LA, the kids do not do a big label thing. Some who do wear expensive clothes are really not snobs, it’s just what they like and they can afford it. The wealthiest kids I know (family with 100’s millions) don’t flaunt it. Of course there are some kids who show off, but at the most academic schools, the kids are generally more concerned with their grades than their clothes. High grades are the status symbol.

    Don’t worry about it, you’ll fit in. = )References :

    I’d just think that their family is wealthy… and they have the potential to be spoiled… but i can’t assume anything other than that.References :

    no worries, i’ve been going to a "prep school" since i was 3, and now i’m 14 it’s no big deal, yes some kids parents are rich but not everybodys, a lot of people are middle class and are well to do enough to have the tutiton and just have a moderate life outside.
    But, like i said there ARE some people who are wealthy, but they don’t flaunt it and public schools hav esome wealthy kids too.

    like i said i go to a private school ununiformed not a church school
    and i have nothing coach brand or loui vaton or marc jacobs or anyhting, as you can proabably see i can’t even spell the brand name(unless i got lucky) no one wers locost at my school, maybe it’s a regional thing but i don’t think so, people do wear nicish clthes but that doesn’t translate to expensive it just meens basically following dress code (like pant top must meet hem of shirt no tank tops less then 3 inches no holew were you can see skin underneath, and no words besides colleges and school)
    and no kids at my school are snobish, well maybe this one chick but no one really likes her. I actually no more snobby public schoolers then private schoolers, but thats probably just bc there are more public schoolers then us so maybe its like normal to have one snob per 80 kids.

    So don’t worry we’re norma, you’ll fit in well, it actually is nice its almost like having a big family.

    So to answere your question: no not having stuff will not make you not fit in.

    Good luck and all the best,

    No, not at all. If private schools are for "rich snobs", then I am proud to say I am a "rich snob". Private school students get a better education and I know it’s safe. Everyone in my school is nice. Well, not everyone, but people who are mean are usually outcasts.References :
