I really like my teachers, but they’re so busy that they don’t really have time to help me outside of class time. How would boarding school be different?
At boarding school, teachers often live in the same building you do. Entire families may live in your same dormitory, and they are there for you, like a family. You’ll also eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with your teachers and coaches in the school dining halls, so you see them every day, many times a day. We did a study and found that boarding school students enjoy more time with teachers, coaches and staff members outside of class than public and private day school students do – about nine hours per week, compared to four hours. That’s a big difference!
