Sandur Residential School was started at a time when good residential schools with a broad based progressive outlook were few in number. The school began with three rooms, three teachers and three students in 1959. Today it is an established and a respected institution and one of 81 select schools to be accorded membership to the Indian Public Schools Conference.
House Mothers and House Masters are at the helm of affairs coordinating the day to day functioning of the dormitories along with a team of dedicated staff working tirelessly towards the social and emotional needs of the girls and boys residing in the school.
The architecture of the dorms is homely but highly efficient from functional point of view.
There are 11 spacious dorms with a courtyard, TT room, Guestroom and TV room separately keeping in mind the wants of the students accommodating 450 boarders, 3 dorms for girls and 7dorms for boys, in addition to this there is an adjacent residence for each of House Mothers and House Masters.
- Over 400 girls and boys stay as boarders
- There are 11 Houses
- First Dormitory was constructed in 1962
- Each House has a House Master or a House Mother
