A day school is where the students attend their classes and study in the school and return to their home for everything else. They stay with their family and go to school only for studies. Whereas boarding schools are those where the students stay on campus in dormitories or resident houses (hostels). They only go home during vacations. They live under the care of hostel wardens. There are various added facilities provided by boarding schools that enhance students’ personality and boost their confidence to a different level.
Co-education is a system of education where both girls and boys are studying in the same institution. While it is a more common system in day schools, boarding schools usually prefer a boy or all-girls educational system. This is because of the fact that they provide accommodation as well. But having a co-educational system is beneficial due to a number of reasons. Students cultivate respect for the opposite gender and overcome any prejudices against the opposite gender. Students tend to behave more decently in the presence of the opposite gender and it helps in building a stronger character.
