Catholics scare me, there very contradictory to the original bible they used which is a little unsettling to me. So I would say public, I actually went to a small Christian school and I had a great time and avoided most the "issues" one would stumble upon in public schools so it's something to think about :)

Public Catholic is sort of an oxymoron because public = EVERYONE, but Catholic is obviously exclusive to only Catholics. I would say that depends on the school, I know there are good Catholic and public schools. In general, I would say public may be better because you experience more of a variety of people and possibly learn about more of a variety of things. I'm assuming at Catholic schools, a lot of the stuff you do is related to Catholicism, which isn't much of a variety (of people or learning material). It also has to do with the school's funding. If the school gets lots of money, it will be a pretty good school.
Private school is more 1on1 and is catered to a select few! Public school has more social values because of the sheer amount of diversity! That's something you need to think about going forward to college!
Depends on the school and school district. There are some awesome public schools and some really bad ones ditto. Id never send a child to a Catholic school but other church based schools can be very good and some not. The problem with most church based schools are that they are denominational - run by a single denimination, usually very traditional ones that teach their denom dogma as much or more than the Bible. Catholuc schools are that way. So is the school my niece and nephew go to - uber traditional Baptist. In my area we have an awesome Christian School K-12 that is not denom specific but is sort of supported by a group of different churches in town.
