Boarding Schools for Boys are schools that have been specially designed to meet the unique needs of boys. Sadly, too many schools (both public and private) have educational methods and rules that seem to be geared toward girls. In many classrooms, the soft spoken meekness of girls is prized over the outspoken boldness of boys. Similarly, schools tend to be geared toward girls who can sit still rather than boys who need to move frequently throughout the day. Trying to fit into an environment that has not been created with them in mind can be hard on boys, and it can be hard on their families.

Luckily, there are other solutions. There are many boarding schools throughout the country that are just for boys. Some parents send their sons to these schools because their sons have trouble functioning in regular schools. Other parents send their sons to boarding schools because they want them to have a better education than they could get in their local schools. Other parents send their sons to these schools because the boarding school arrangement works well with the parents’ work schedule. Regardless of why you want to send your son to a boarding school, there are a few questions that you should ask the school before you enroll your son.

If you prefer to send your son to a school that only accepts boys, you should talk to Boarding Schools for Boys. However, you may be able to find a co-ed boarding school that works for your situation. If you are talking to a coed school, you should ask the school if they keep the boys and girls separate. You should ask about their lodging arrangements as well as their classroom arrangements. In some schools, they keep the boys and girls in separate dorms, but they allow them to take the same classes. In other co-ed schools, they keep them completely separate.

If your son has been diagnosed with a condition like ADHD, ADD or dyslexia, you should ask the school if they offer special education programs. You may also want to ask if they are willing to work with IEP’s (Individual Education Plan). The more you know about the school, the easier it will be to make your decision.
