it depends.it's not always like this but it happens sometimes, especially old teachers can make sarcastic remarks about make-up, clothes, piercing...
Polish teachers are mean.

I'll just tell you Shad that all these points of view are pretty biased, and single unlucky cases. There are pros and cons of Polish schools ( like schools anywhere else ) but they depend strictly on these schools themselves, there are good schools and bad schools, probably most are ok... you should fathom it out earlier, before going to such shool - what are the standards of teaching there, is the youth alright..
I have really fond memories of all schools I attended too, including 8 years in school placed in a pretty rough panel housing project similar to american Pruitt Igoe.
