As Filipinos, we could all agree on how important education is. We believe that education is one of the keys in having a successful and fruitful life. It opens opportunities and equips us with the knowledge and skills that we need. Though we may all have a similar opinion on its importance, we sure have different takes on what is the definition of best education for our children or how they can achieve it.

Parents are more than willing to send their kids to any school just for the sake of their kid’s education. Hearing about the best school in Pasig, Quezon City or in their town totally appeals to them. This puts their mind at ease knowing that the future of their children is secured. But parents have different opinion of what makes a school the best there is. Some may say that exclusive schools give the best education with the state-of-the-art facilities, and advance learning curriculums. Other, though they can afford to pay for a private school, still prefer public schools because environment that can really toughen up a kid. And then there are those who would choose a private catholic school which focuses mainly on moral building.

Studying in a catholic school has its own perks and downsides. The following are some of the things that kids who grew up studying in catholic schools can surely relate to:

Some of your classmates have been your classmates since kindergarten.
  1. You get too excited during PE class because you don’t have to wear regular uniform.
  2. You hated everyone from your school’s rival school.

  14. Wearing the wrong shade of school uniform made you oddly uncomfortable.
  15. Being best in religion is actually a thing.
  16. You know a handful of Bible verses.
  17. Forgetting to bring your rosary is a big deal.
