The school has adopted a unique way of boarding students. The students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are kept in semi-private billets separate from high school cadets, which give an allowance to the development of fair and realistic expectations for the cadets of this age group.

John’s keeps a low student to teacher ratio, to broaden the level of attention given to each student. While, the academic side of the school brightens the mental capabilities of the cadets, the military side of the school puts in them the qualities like self-worth and effective leadership.
