Holden doesn't like anything about Pencey Prep.

"They don't do any damn more molding at Pencey than they do at any other school. And I didn't know anybody there that was splendid and clear-thinking and all. Maybe two guys. If that many. And they probably came to Pencey that way."

"It was a terrible school, no matter how you looked at it...."
