Summerhill also has democratic meetings for day-to-day affairs and
non-compulsory classes.

Differences include:

- Summerhill's historic emphasis on the therapeutic possibilities inherent
in the model
- Summerhill's scheduled classes, at which teachers are required to be, but
students are not
- Summerhill has less parental involvement (no Assembly or other formal
voting structure for parents)
- More control over such things as hiring and budget by the Head at
- Summerhill has a more international student body
- Summerhill is a boarding school
