    Yes. I went to a LOT of public schools as my parents moved a lot. Some of them were really great, like my high school that had a lot of AP classes and 5 national merit semi-finalists in my graduating class. I doubt I could have had a better school if I had been in a private school. But I also went to a grade school where the kids beat up on me and the teachers yelled at me for complaining about it!  You just never know what you will get with a public school, and the only way you can change it is to move, which isn't possible for everyone.

    I went to a public school for high school, having been homeschooled the entire time since then. Though it was a fairly good school and we had great teachers, I felt that it moved painfully slow, the teachers were far too restricted by curriculum requirements (this was just as No Child Left Behind hit schools so we wasted pretty much my whole Junior year just preparing for and taking standardized tests). I liked the teachers and the people in the school, but I felt like the classes did little more than interrupt time I could have otherwise spent learning.

    We had four national merit scholars in the class before me (41 people), and two in my own class (32 people), so one could say it was a pretty good school...just wasn't enough for me or my sister (one of the aforementioned merit scholars).

    I went to public school, and honestly I liked it. I learned and I got out of it what I put in. I think the biggest problem with students making low grades is that they don't apply themselves, although sometimes it does have to do with the teacher.
