Boarding students are warmly received starting from the sixth grade. Every boarding student is entitled to anticipate a dorm room characterised by tranquillity, reasonable privacy, respect for their emotions and possessions, and a secure living environment. Since the dormitory serves as a student's temporary residence and the more enduring home of dorm faculty, it is crucial to foster consideration for others and a sense of community. When cooperation and empathy are prevalent, residential life becomes the foundation for forming meaningful and enduring friendships.
