As of late, the debate between public and private high school education has become a common topic of conversation. The question arises, which option of schooling is best for its students? While fairness may come into play, this thesis is not focused on discovering injustices in the systems. This thesis analyses data and features from public and private high schools to determine which system provides the best education and opportunities for its students to be successful in postgraduation. From the analyzed data, one can conclude that private high schools provide better opportunities and better education for students than public high schools. While the same factors exist in public high schools, private high schools score higher statistically and consistently.
