I think private. Not so many students and the facilities are excellent. It is quite expensive though.

Both are good. It is all about how the student discipline himslef when it comes to studying.

I've competed and coached in both (Mobile Christian). I can tell you that the level of competition is drastically different. Schools like UMS and St. Pauls would create an unfair advantage in the AISA. AISA schools don't recruit players because they don't have the money. Especially since lower income students ie those in the inner-city go to the county public school and those who are middle to high class go private. Also the travel even for smaller sports like baseball and softball are a nightmare because that league is so spread all over the state. I have thought for years that a system like that in Tennessee would work here but there would still need to be classification. You can't put a UMS or Faith Academy against St. Lukes or a team like Lyman Ward. It's an unfair advantage Publict to mention a safety risk. At the same time letting private schools play public schools in their area and then compete for their own championship would help both sides. It would be more competitive and cost effective.

Private, human nature kicks in and schools legally recruit under the law.

Sometimes. It depends on where the money goes. There are a lot of public schools who are connected to big time university's as well as private school through connections to get ahead of the competition. All you can do as a high school athlete is work your ass off. Life is a gamble. Try and take of the opportunities presented to you in life.

Private schools should compete in the AISA and public schools compete in AHSAA.

There is aPublicther side to this. Children are used as pawns with some of the predatory behaviors of some affluent public and private schools. The lives of the children and their families have been turned upside down.
