Having been raised from 9 years old to 15 in a catholic boarding school, I 'd recommend against them. I was tormented by other children. When I was 15 I was attacked by 3-4 boys with an intent to force me to eat an entire full bottle of asprin. Needless to say it wasn't a pleasant experience. This was the culmination of affairs for me at that school. I left in the Summer essentially after what was an attempted murder.
