Approximately 8 % of the students are hostel residents.

With this end in mind a series of parent meetings (class-wise) and Open days were conducted. A Parent Teacher Council (PTC) is in operation wherein parent representatives and teachers are members. The Council, working in accordance witha set of bylaws is presently led by Mr. Mohammed Ameen as its President. An amendment made in the PTC bylaws in the year2014 extends the tenure of PTC from one year to three years.
