Snow Leopard Residence (SLR) is a residence in Kathmandu for students who have completed their lower secondary education at Crystal Mountain School and are continuing their studies. Students live together in a typical Dolpo atmosphere and attend different schools and colleges during the day.
History of SLR
Established in 2003, the first group of CMS students who resided in SLR had outstanding results on their School Leaving Certificate (SLC) exams, with 45 students in first division and 5 in distinction. Many of these students have gone on to become nurses, health assistants, lab technicians, teachers, project managers, and local leaders in Dolpo after finishing their education at SLR.
Over the years, SLR has evolved to adapt to the changing needs of its students and the community. In 2019, when Crystal Mountain was upgraded to Secondary level, only grade 9 and 10 students of CMS came to SLR in winter for educational tours and tuition classes before returning back home in the summer. However, starting from 2020, only grade 11 and 12 students stay in SLR year-round.
SLR continues to be a leader in providing education and opportunities for students in Dolpo, with a proven track record of success.
Living at SLR
SLR provides a typical Dolpo atmosphere where students can live and learn together in a close-knit community.
Residential facilities include comfortable and safe living spaces, as well as amenities such as a dining hall and common areas for socializing and relaxation.
Daily routine includes a balance of academic studies, extracurricular activities, and community involvement opportunities.
The residence also provides 24-hour supervision and support from staff, ensuring the well-being of the students.
It’s also important to mention that the students at SLR are given a lot of autonomy and are encouraged to be independent in a safe and nurturing environment. They are taught to take responsibilities for their own actions and to develop self-discipline. They learn how to live with others and how to be part of a community.
