Boarding was a bit difficult for me at first but I got used to it because everyone is so nice and friendly here! My house parents, dorm mates, Bhutanese friends all have made me feel very welcome. Boarding has made me more responsible and independent than I was before. I'm very thankful to my parents for sending me to Prem and giving me this experience. Boarding is just so much fun, I just get to hang around and play with my friends. We do our homework together, play basketball together and many other activities. I love boarding here at Prem!❤
One of Prem’s unique strengths is the sense of community fostered by the school and its beautiful campus. From the teachers to the staff to the parents, our strength lies in both our unity of purpose and our diversity. With so many events and activities for parents and kids, we’re focused on raising healthy, happy, lifelong learners.
