Home schooled students

We have a fair number of students that attend Small Religious PUI that are homeschooled either in part or completely until they arrive here. I had a few prejudices about homeschooled kids previous to this job, and those prejudices probably arose from a very low N from which I based my conclusions. I can say now that I cannot tell the homeschooled kids from their peers in either social adjustment or academics, however that is an unscientific observation.

OTOH, I can spot from a mile away students that come from a local private high school. They have a rockstar science teacher, and they are VERY well prepared for our classes.
