10 Of The Most Shocking Prep School Scandals



Horace Mann Sex Scandal

This New York school’s sex scandal is among the worst in the history of private schools anywhere. The New York Times dug into the school and found that as many as 64 students were sexually abused by more than 22 teachers and staff members from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. The length of the abuse and the number of people involved led people to believe an actual sex ring was being run through the school.

The Choate Rosemary Hall Drug Smuggling Scandal

In 1984, Derek Oatis, who was a 17-year-old student at the school, was arrested at JFK airport with more than $300,000 worth of cocaine. Following his arrest, 17 other students were implicated and subsequently expelled. Two of the students were helping Oatis smuggle and the other 15 were cited for aiding and abetting.
