A boarding school is a pre-university level school where most or all of the students take up residence when school is in session. The word ”boarding” is used in the sense of "room and board," i.e., lodging and meals.
Built in a peaceful setting within the school grounds, yet only a stone's throw from the school's central facilities, the self-contained, purpose-built residence halls provide a wonderful opportunity for HKS students to experience a greater degree of independence and privacy.
Residence halls are available to both weekly and full-time boarders. Weekly boarders stay in the residence halls from Monday through Friday and return home on weekends. Full-time boarders reside on campus for full semesters and return home during winter and summer breaks.
Starting from Grade 3, students are eligible to live on campus. HKS encourages local students, grades 9 and above, to stay in the residence hall as weekly boarders. Boys and girls are housed in separate buildings.
The residence halls are modern, comfortable places for students to study, socialize and relax. As adult mentors, the residence hall staff provide the daily support needed to meet academic, emotional and social needs of the students. Students participate in various festivals from around the world which gives them a true global exposure. The residence hall activities are also open to day school students.
Depending on the availability and the interest of House parents and volunteers, students may be escorted to participate in religious services held outside the campus such as church or temple during religious holidays. Local guardian can also take the student to these events. Within the residence hall premises, the students can always practice their religion. The list of fun and frolics is never ending here. It’s a perfect combo of fun outings, adventure camps, sports outings and educational trips.
The residence hall students indulge in movie watching, fine dining, shopping, celebrating every festival with gusto and zeal, at the same time developing social responsibility, understanding life and getting armed with life tools to lead life in a better and smarter way.
"Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students."
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
"It's not mere syllabus that depends on the excellence, its the teachings that are imparted that would help a child connect with the world."
Hermann J Steinherr
"Education is a modern nuclear power if we make a mistake imparting, the outcome is devastating and becomes later root cause of every social evil."
