by Kasiga School No.1 Co-educational Boarding School in Uttarakhand
People select products and services of everyday use as well as occasional importance based on various criteria so that their choice is wise. And, when it comes to choosing boarding schools for their children, the case is no different. It is especially important to choose a good boarding school as children spend much more time in a residential school setup as compared to a day school. A variety of things need to be considered before sending one’s child to a boarding school. There are number of affordable boarding schools in India and abroad but choosing from among them is quite a task. It is advisable to take time to make one’s decisions instead of rushing things or basing the decision on subjective prejudices. Discussed below are a few points to be kept in mind while choosing a boarding school for your child.

  • Academic curriculum and course structure: You must be well-aware and specific about the kind of education you want your child to receive. You should be specific about the board of education, the curriculum and course contents. Various schools have different affiliations, curricula and modes of education. As a parent, you should find out if the school offers the kind of education or learning-teaching methods or curriculum that you want your child to pursue.

  • Extracurricular activities: Boarding schools are not all about academics. They put considerable emphasis on extracurricular activities to shape and develop a child’s mental abilities, nurture talents and provide relaxation. Choose a school that has a range of extracurricular activities to offer and is committed to providing a good extracurricular background to your child. Cultural activities as well as a number of sports should be available at the school you choose for your child. This would help your child to not only relax and be physically fit but would also increase his/her knowledge of the world and its cultures.

  • Reputation and experience: Conduct a thorough research on the school’s background and journey starting from its foundation and also extending to its alumni. This will help you to get a good and clear idea about the background and experience of the school, its methods and its evolution over a period of time. You may also go through reviews of present students, alumni and parents to get a clearer picture of the strong and weak points of the school. You must choose a school that has good experience in the field of education and is dedicated to providing good knowledge and skills to its students.

  • Infrastructure and amenities: Choose a school that has an infrastructure that can support learning in a modern and efficient manner. The school must have spacious and smart classrooms, Internet access for students, clean and comfortable dormitories, hygienic dining areas and kitchens, recreational centers and round-the-clock security. These factors will ensure your child can enjoy learning and participate in extracurricular activities in a safe and secure environment equipped with the latest technological features.

Thus, whether you are choosing from affordable boarding schools in India or high-budget boarding schools abroad, you must pay heed to factors including the above to make a good choice.
