Unlike the schools you see in movies or read about in books, boarding schools today have modern approaches to teaching and housing students. We don’t adhere to the misconception that boarding schools are cold, hard places where “bad kids” are sent to learn discipline. Instead boarding schools, like The Kiski School, are full of fun, stimulating learning experiences that you can’t get anywhere else. Here are a few reasons you and your family should consider boarding school:
Boarding schools foster stimulating educational environments where students want to learn. Students at Kiski want to be challenged and exceed their potential academically. We provide them with the encouragement and resources they need to reach their goals. Unlike at public schools where a culture of ambivalence towards education dominates, boarding schools allow our students to learn without these misguided external social pressures.
It’s easy to teach students when you have passionate teachers, and boarding schools tend to hire the best. We hire teachers with advanced degrees in their fields of study. They enjoy sharing their areas of expertise with young minds. When students see their mentors are passionate about something, it’s easy for them to learn and share that mindset.
