They are supposed to show responsibility for all of their own decisions in the hope of becoming more mature.

2. Students get on well with their peers and improve teamwork skills

Boarding students spend all of their time with their friends and teachers without going back home after school, so homesickness seems unavoidable. However, being with (enjoying the company of) friends and teachers, especially taking part in well-organized and disciplined activities will be their beneficial experiences. That will also help them know how to live harmoniously with people of different characteristics and to cooperate with others, which will be an essential skill for their future jobs.

They have to follow strict rules as follows: they are not allowed to go out of the school without permission, time is fixed for their routines, they are taught to use public services properly, and so on. The ultimate purpose of those regulations is to serve students’ safety and develop their self-discipline. Therefore, parents can feel peace in sending their children into such secure and fresh environment where no social evils or any kinds of crime would penetrate.

4. Teachers are always beside/stand by their students as friends

In a boarding school, students have chances to interact with their teachers in a variety of contexts where they take different roles such as a teacher in classroom, a coach in sport activities, a partner in a team work, or even a friend in small talks. As a matter of fact that teachers are approachable whenever they are in need; hence students can get their help easily and in time. This also helps to improve relationship between students and teachers and may lead to tremendous opportunities of better study and tutoring for students, which may not be that available in other environments.
