This was a qualitative research study, which utilized systematic Grounded Theory methodologies and was conducted at the Dhammavithi School (alias), which has been recognized as an exemplary Buddhist Way School from the perspective of those, who had witnessed the phenomenon. The results of the research presented a procedural theory that illustrated the following two important operational characteristics of this school: 1) it was operated by utilizing the principle of “Dtrai Sìk-Kăa,” and 2) it was managed by utilizing the twenty-nine ways of Buddhist identity. There were three important reasons for the implementation of such methods: 1) the problems, 2) inspiration & expectations, and 3) cooperation from communities, schools, and temples. Therefore, this led to the following two key strategies: 1) determining the school's aspirations, visions, and identities to work together; and 2) determining the roles of the personnel that could emphasize the adoption of the Buddhist ways of life under the contextual conditions, in which students were at risk and the intervening conditions had created an integrated student care system. Many positive results led the Dhammavithi School (alias) to be recognized as an exemplary Buddhist Way School.
