Boarding school, Academic performance, Group differences.


As a standard management system in the learning and life of junior high school students, boarding significantly impacts students' academic performance. However, there are substantial differences in academic performance between day and boarding students. This paper takes junior high school students as an example, selects data from the China Education Panel Survey to analyze the relationship between boarding and academic performance, and finds that day students have higher academic performance than boarding students. Furthermore, exploring the differences between these two groups of junior high school students finds that day students perform better than boarding students in many vital variables.
