I grew up middle class. My parents HHI was never more that 150K. However my grandparents had a fair amount of money, and helped us out a fair amount. They bought my parents their home as a wedding gift (it cost 60K in 1979). They paid for all their grandchildrens private education from K to as high as they were interested in perusing. My point is, I don't know if it's different because I grew up outside of New York, or because I was in school in the 90s, but I never felt poor at any of the private schools I attended. It didn't even occur to me, any differences I saw between my peers and I was just attributed to my parents being lame.
