They perceived an environment for personal development with regard to honing social interaction skills with other children from diverse backgrounds and enhancement of their own self confidence and self esteem. Gentle guidance that would help the children grow into becoming responsible and independent individuals were the primary principles that Himali Boarding School was founded on. All parents rightfully aspire to give their child the best education- the start in life.
This is fundamental to a Childs future, personal development and employment prospects in society today. The aim of Himali Boarding School is to provide an atmosphere in which to do so.

At Himali Boarding School, we strive for excellence in all our pursuits academic, sporting, spiritual and cultural. Our children are given the best opportunity to fulfill their potential in life and grow into mature, responsible members of the society.
