When many students live together, difference of opinion is bound to happen. That’s when  students learn the art of conflicts management and make peace with the situation. This prepares them to take care of themselves in any given situation.

3. Widens Outlook & Outreach

In a boarding school, students get a chance to live and share their space with students from across the globe. They live together, share the same room, eat together, and study together. The students learn about new cultures and this widens their outlook & Outreach.

This helps them evolve as a well networked professional in the later life.

4. Inculcates Confidence

A boarding student has to step out of his/her comfort zone every now & then.  This boosts their confidence in social settings.  They come out as a more confident person than what they used to be. The boarding students get to spend quality time with the residential teachers resulting in better learning opportunities both academically & otherwise.
