For those of us who had had the good fortune of studying in a boarding school growing up was a lot of fun and distress. On one hand you had to deal with angry teachers and bullies, and on the other you get to experience incredible freedom. There are some of us who actually would want to relive those years. After all, our teenage years were when we figured out who we were, who our friends were, and who we might want to be when we grew up. It wasn’t easy, but it felt important, if only because we didn’t know what the adult world had in store for us when it was all over.
The experiences of boarding school are certainly different from a regular school. That’s why we thought of putting together a list of top movies about boarding school life ever made. You can watch some of these best boarding school movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
10. A Little Princess (1995)
An astonishing work of studio artifice, ‘A Little Princess’ is that rarest of creations, a children’s film that plays equally well to kids and adults. In the movie “A young girl is relegated to servitude at a boarding school when her father goes missing and is presumed dead.” This film reminds you what life’s all about.
