somethingsweetqndbright asked: Hi Lisa, i was wondering how I could convince my parents to send me to prep school? It is not the money I know that and if it was my grandparents would be very willing to pay for it. I don't see why they are so hesitant. Right now I am going to a university model school and like it. I just think I could do better somewhere else.(and a lot of my friends go to prep schools)
This is no simple question you have posed. Where do you live? What grade are you? Where do you want to go to school? Do you want to board? Are there any good day schools within commuting distance to your house? Do you have siblings at home?
In other words, as a mummy, I see that a gazillion other factors will go into making this decision — not just money, which is a biggie in its own right. If you are doing super well at your school right now and your teachers think you would succeed at a private school, that would be more persuasive than anything else. See if you can get a teacher or dean’s point of view. And good luck!
