  Why if I'm paying a private tuition I have to follow so many rules?

That's one of the biggest and most common question.

Paying for a Tuition means paying for a Student to receive a service. A service that a private company is offering.
It does not give the parent or legal guardian the right to do whatever they want inside a private property.
School rules are created for the safety of the School Community.
Some rules are required by the accreditation entities and other rules are state rules or laws.
Each private school will also create a rule depending of the school population .

Also lot of students disrespect other peoples privacy posting unwanted pictures or videos on the web or creating cyber bullying while on school premises. **Parents are not allowed to text their kids nor vice-verse.
