Never mind :)
Your probably not wrong when talking about the nature of private schools though.

I used to go to a private school and talked to students from many private schools when I was there and quite frankly more of the students from private schools seem a lot more arrogant than a public school, like they’re sort of full of themselves.

I would still pick a top selective over grammar.

I went to a private school before going to a selective school. My old school wasn’t that good academically, however, the working environment was a lot better at my old school. it was just lifestyle things like good desks, chairs, working space and so on. the only benefit of going to a top selective school compared to a top private school that i can think of is the academic pressure/encouragement that you receive at a selective school. This is mostly to do with the fact not all the kids at private school have to work their asses as pressure from their families/friends.

you've gotta be kidding if you think there aren't plenty of people full of themselves in top selective. perhaps not so much boasting about their family. but definitely themselves.

Usually people there boast about their school and how better it is or how they're superior. However with private schools I've found it to be a generally worse culture with the few private schools I've seen and these aren't low ranked schools. Especially in the way they treat other people.

Well for example.

Many experiences from schools include racism as the number one factor.

Selective schools tend to be a lot more diverse with East Asians, South Asians, some Caucasians etc and culturally more accepting. Although I have no statistics for this so I'm just speaking from personal experience and those of my friends. So I cannot strongly confirm nor deny these observations. It's obviously an insignificant proportion. It is just what I've seen..

I mean I can sense ya sarcasm, but that is why I said at the start "that is why your probably right."

I never said I'm certain but there's a decent probability since it matches up with what I've seen.

Why? (besides the rank)
The rank is literally so important. Think about why people thrive to get into higher-ranking schools and why these schools are high ranking in the first place. It's all a cycle. Smarter kids go to higher-ranking schools and this fosters a competitive environment.

Smarter people = more competitive environment = more motivation to study = more studying = doing better in exams = more people doing well in exams = better learning environment = not having to worry about doing too bad because you can depend on your grade to not drag you down but pull you up
Wouldn't Penrith have a competitive environment also, so the same concept applies right?
