Despite popular myth, Catholic school isn't that bad. Most people who tell horror stories about what the nuns did to them are making it up or exaggerating. Not to say it never happened, but my mother told me she was in both Catholic school and public school, and she found the public school teachers to be harsher than the nuns. I enjoyed my Catholic school; I recieved a good education in an enviornment of peers who (mainly) had the same belief system as I did. I wasn't taught to be close minded, and have only been called so once (by someone who was incredibly close minded and angry). I wouldn't trade those years for anything.
