Points to Check for While Enrolling your Child in a Residential School

by Kasiga School No.1 Co-educational Boarding School in Uttarakhand
Selecting a school for your child should be done only after careful evaluation of the facilities provided by the institute and it is especially true, if you want to enrol your son or daughter in a residential school. When you enrol your child in a residential school, it is also important to ensure that the school prioritizes the safety of its students. There should also have medical facilities available within its premises or in close proximity of the institute. This will ensure that if any medical emergency arises, it will be met with absolute promptness. When you send your child to a residential school, the first thing that you must understand is that you will not be there to monitor the growth and development of your child on a regular basis. Hence, it is of paramount importance that you evaluate the facilities and the academic background of the residential school carefully. This way, you can be assured of the fact that you are sending your child to an institute that is extremely concerned about the growth and development of each and every student. 

Evaluating a Residential School

Dehradun, as we all know, has some of the country’s best residential schools for both boys and girls where highly experienced academicians and counsellors work closely with students. And, a faculty of one of the best CBSE schools in Dehradun opines that the first thing that parents should check for, while evaluating a residential school is to ensure that the institute believes in providing holistic education. A school that insists on providing comprehensive education will give adequate importance to academics as well as extracurricular activities. Holistic education alone will ensure that your child grows up to become an accomplished and successful individual. Besides this, here are some of the other points that you must take into consideration while evaluating a residential school:

  • Faculty: Since the faculty of a residential school is responsible for the well being of the students as well as their education, it is essential to ensure that the teachers are all highly qualified, experienced, and empathetic individuals. Moreover, given the fact that in a residential school children stay away from parents, the faculty must be loving and compassionate enough for children to feel comfortable with them. 

  • Adequate facilities to pursue co-curricular activities: When you enrol you child in a residential school, it is important to check the sports and infrastructural facilities available within the campus. Since, it will not be possible for your child to step out of the school campus to pursue hobbies like swimming, dancing, performing arts and music; the school should have adequate facilities to help students pursue these activities within the premises.  

  • Health and nutrition: The residential school in which you enrol your child should provide healthy food approved by qualified nutritionists. The school should also provide children with sufficient choices in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.

Thus, while evaluating a residential school, it is essential to check the facilities provided by the institute, pedagogy followed, and the experience of faculty members. If you want to enrol your child in a school that has all of these facilities and more, then you should check out the best residential schools in Dehradun or other educational hubs of the country like Jaipur, Darjeeling and Pune that follow the CBSE curriculum.
