I've switched schools five times in my school career. The most difficult and biggest change was from an all-girl's private school where we had to wear uniforms, to a public school. The classes were larger, the teachers were less formal, and everybody got to wear whatever they wanted. I had to learn how to behave in class and change my perceptions of my new world.
Everybody was more easygoing, but it was hard to make friends. How very paradoxal! I changed my personality in some ways and thus altered how I interacted and thought. Public school really opened my eyes as to what the real world was like, and I was able to cope with bigger problems once I toughened up. I perpetuated culture by telling my friends what it was really like in an all-girl's private school. They learned first-hand, and were not blinded by the garbled trash that normally portrays private schools.
