The recent fair organized by The Red Pen, Linden Boarding School Tours, and CASE was an insightful one. Our takeaways on why a parent must consider sending their child to boarding school are captured here!
Since boarding schools are not just a place where students come to study but actually live, these schools are responsible to motivate, engage and fuel students, while also acting as their guardians in the absence of their parents. Here are the 5 reasons why we think you must as a parent keep into account when deciding on sending your child to boarding school!
Apart from providing students with in-depth academic knowledge, most boarding schools also focus on children’s all-round development including communication skills, fitness, creativity, problem-solving, decision-making, and overall intellectual abilities. Most boarding schools are located outside of city centers, where there is enough space for state-of-the-art facilities including art studios, swimming pools, well-equipped playgrounds, fitness rooms, and other athletic and inventive offerings. This enables students to participate in extracurricular activities right on campus.
2. On-campus faculty:
Most boarding schools have smaller classes, which means more personalized attention for your child. Apart from this, teachers also live on campus, so they offer guidance outside of the classroom as well. Therefore, boarding schools can provide an immersive, intellectually-challenging environment for students where teachers are not only educators but also friends, mentors, and life coaches.
3. Independent lifestyle:
Boarding schools encourage students to carry out everyday chores, manage academic assignments, control monetary spending and monitor eating habits on their own, without relying on a family member. This not only makes them independent but also helps them become more responsible, mature and mindful. In the short-term, this helps students transition smoothly to the university life that awaits them and in the long-term, has lasting impressions on their personality and transforms them into emotionally strong and confident individuals.
4. Student life:
A sociological and cultural melting pot, boarding schools typically admit students from all over the world. Some belong to different cultures, while others have diverse economic and social backgrounds. All students stay together and learn together, which not only increases every student’s knowledge of traditions and practices across geographies but also improves their communication skills and tolerance while widening their perspectives. These qualities are indispensable at universities and workplaces.
5. Building a network:
At boarding school, students actually live with their friends. They study, participate in various sports and learn extra-curricular activities along with their close friends right on the campus. This sharpens their communication skills, interpersonal skills, persuasion skills, and conflict resolution. Apart from this, living with the same group of people for an extended period of time also allows students to establish a bond that transcends geographies, societies, and cultures, leading to a strong support system.
Sending your child to boarding school is a difficult decision, one that requires a lot of thought and family discussions.
