Tri Na'imah, Retno Dwiyanti, Sriyanto Sriyanto


The study of the studentswell-being in schools is important, because the decline in it is a sign of their emotional and behavioral problems. The purpose of this study was to study and develop the concept of student’s well-being in boarding schools. To achieve these objectives, the research was carried out in stages with a qualitative research design employing a grounded theory approach. The primary informant of the study was the teachers, and the secondary informant was the students. Interview and observation methods were applied to collect the data. The analysis technique used a constant comparative analysis. The results showed that the theoretical model of achieving students’ well-being in the boarding school was described as follows: 1) the achievement of the students’ well-being at the boarding school involved the students, caregivers  and the teachers, 2) the students’ well-being was achieved through holding activities to create security in school and in the dormitory, building social relations, developing social and emotional aspects of students, and improving academic and religious achievements, 3) the indicators of their well-being include their feel at home in the dormitory, their sense of belonging to the dormitory, their sense of empathy to friends, their ability to interact socially with fellow students, caretakers, and teachers, and their growing responsibility to study academics and religion.
