Life in Boarding

Life at Boarding School

The Emerald Heights International School is one of the best boarding schools in India and is currently ranked #1 in the country and #1 in Indore and Madhya Pradesh (M.P.) in the category of co-ed day-cum-boarding school and #1 in India in the parameters of Infrastructure Provision at the EducationWorld India School Rankings 2022-23. Emerald has been awarded the Best School in India in the categories of Best Infrastructure School, Excellence in Sports Education, Excellence in Safety and Security and Best Boarding School at the Brainfeed School Excellence Awards 2022. Emerald Heights has been rated with AAAAA, the highest rating for schools, at India’s Best Schools 2023 by Careers 360 under the Residential and Day School categories for the academic year 2022-23.

The school has a separate boarding for boys and girls. For students, coming to the boarding means, living away from home for the first time. So we need to be sure that the place is clean, comfortable, safe and within easy reach of all activities. The boarding students are encouraged to take full advantage of all the facilities and opportunities provided to them. Accommodation for students is provided in well maintained, fully furnished hostels with spacious dormitories. It’s here, where the young students learn the spirit of togetherness and imbibe the value of sharing and caring for one another.

The boarding students have an organized schedule, which allocates them with time for self-studies, tutorials, extra-classes, games, recreation and rest. The students’ well-being is looked after by a team of dedicated house staff and wardens, who provide them with a homely and friendly atmosphere.

The boarding has facilities like television rooms, reading lounge, recreation rooms with table tennis and billiards tables and separate rooms for self-studies. The wardens pay individual attention to each child, acting like strong and motivating parents and counseling them when required.

Weekends and Holiday Schedule

A complete schedule for school holidays and weekends is handed over to the parents in June to plan for the year ahead. Parents are requested to take the child home for holidays according to the boarding calendar.
