Boys residential School
St. Paul's is, essentially an Indian residential school for boys. That is to say, the staff and the scholars are predominantly Indian, and its educational policy is oriented towards life in India and India's place in world affairs. But this has not come in the way of one of the School's most important assets: its international, multiracial and cross-regional cosmopolitan character. This is an asset of immeasurable educational value. Boys from many different parts of India, of different castes and from different religious communities, are living, working, eating, worshipping and playing together with boys from other nations with different social and religious customs. We can hardly over-emphasize the importance of this factor. The intellectual, emotional and social adjustments a boy must make in such an environment provide additional interest and stimulus in his school life, and are a useful preparation for such adjustments in later life in an increasingly international world.
