Applying in middle versus high school

People ask if they can go to public elementary and then apply to private high school; public elementary, public middle school and then just wait and got to private high school. And what I usually tell them is this: By the time it's high school, there are very few spaces available. The big entry points for private school are really kindergarten and middle school, and that's really it. Even though private high schools might open up an additional number of spots for high school, it will be very small compared to the number of spaces they will open for middle school. So if you're thinking in that direction, yes, there is a big difference between 45 to 75 spaces that might open for middle school and the 20 spaces that might open for high school, 10 boys, 10 girls. So yeah, the competition for high school is much greater.
