A private school (also known as independent school or nonstate schools[1]) is a school that is not controlled by a government. These schools decide which students to admit. They get their money in whole or in part from the school fees that students pay to attend, instead of from taxes. Private schools are often more expensive than other schools.[2]

In Britain, private schools are usually called public schools.
