Boarding school - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2736 words)
Boarding schools are sometimes referred to as public schools in the UK and as "private school" in American English.
Many boarding schools are self-contained within their own walls, while others such as Eton and Westminster have buildings and grounds in various streets in the neighbourhood of the school.
Most societies decline to take boarding schools as the preferred option for the upbringing of their children, except in British societies or in its former colonies; in England, India, and former African colonies of Great Britain, for example, boarding schools are one of the preferred modes of education.
