If you have preference for a particular board, check which are the best schools affiliated to IGCSE, CBSE and ICSE Board in your city. You and probably your child will make the final decision but it is good to gather opinions from different sources.Infrastructure and Basic Facilities – If you can afford to pay the fee at a "renowned" private school of Delhi NCR, see that it also offers the infrastructural facilities that you expect. How does it feel to be in building? Are the classrooms well ventilated? At a day boarding, in addition to the school building, classrooms, the labs, playground, and transport, the dining room and associated facilities also come into play. Do not hesitate to ask about the kind of meals offered. Is there a respect for eating habits of vegetarians?
Extracurricular Activities – When children go to a school, the aim is not just their intellectual development through theory and practical but also to ensure that they become confident individuals by participating in debates, dramatics, sports, social service and other activities.

Impression at Campus – Seeing is believing. You may get to hear a lot about some schools from friends and media, but when you finally make the decision to put your child in a day boarding school it is advisable to actually visit the campus in person.
