IBDP Testimonial

RAJKUMAR At the outset, we would like to express our immense happiness and confidence in the IBDP curriculum. When we moved to Mumbai five years before, we were blessed to get our son admitted in Hiranandani Foundation School International and we can see him blossom into a fine young man with inquisitiveness to learn, confidence about himself and being competent in what he does.

Aadhavan’s holistic development in Education, Sports, School Councils, Extra and Co-Curricular activities has been tremendously supported and guided by the School Management and our beloved Principal.

This won't be possible without the IBDP curriculum’s holistic system of experiential learning in subjects as well as co & extracurricular activities. What specially stands out to us is the exemplary and visionary leadership of the Principal Ma’am, Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik of the Hiranandani Foundation School International.

The IB Curriculum is focused in developing every student as an International citizen with a quest to excellence and I can see that in my child. They have fantastic CAS programme and Student guidance initiatives - especially the Student Mentorship program. The mentorship program provides individual attention to the child and gives a holistic outlook to the student. The opportunity to be mentored by Principal, IBDP Coordinator and the faculty members in a friendly and approachable way gives the children the confidence and build their capability to approach their subjects, extra and co- curricular activates well.

The school’s additional value adds like bringing in Global Universities to the campus for Education fair, College Guidance programs and Alumni student connect initiatives make a huge difference to students and parents.

Excellent sports support system and highly appreciable environment to nurture and grow their leadership qualities and value system. More than anything else, we know that our children are in safe hands during their normative, formative and adolescent period that gives us a great comfort. Special thanks to Ms. Jagruti Joshi, IBDP Coordinator and other IB section staff members.

The Covid19 Pandemic has turned things upside down not just in one’s professional life, but also in personal life. Since the pandemic started everyone is going through turbulent times and not just safety of life but safety of mind is also been troubled. Even in these times, HFSI School Management has done a tremendous job of understanding the situation and quickly organizing the required things to ensure the children are not affected. It’s also important to mention the way Principal Ma’am communicated to parents, responded and organized the online education aspects during the Covid19 pandemic time, which is simply “Commendable”.

The swiftness in assessing the situation and organizing the classes, not just conducting classes but ensuring every planned event and programme are successfully conducted online by the IBDP coordinator and Teachers are highly appreciated. Especially the way the teachers conducted Internal Assessments, School projects, presentations, virtual classes and mentoring of students not just on education but even on their mental wellbeing are some of the highlights that we are proud to say that we are HFSI Family.

Also the way the TedX programme, HFSMUN program organized and conducted all virtually by the students under the guidance of Principal and Teachers was very professional and well organized. We can see the planning, meticulous execution of the plans and the leadership in each of these events. It’s not just an experience to the children but a life lesson that our beloved Principal has taught on Crisis Management and “Never say No” attitude.

With the passion in which the Principal, Coordinators and Teachers get involved in student's growth even in such an unprecedented pandemic situation is reassuring that our choice of school and the IB board curriculum is the right one. I wish the School Management, Leaders and School staffs all the very best in the coming years.

TANVI APTE When I look back over my first day of IBDP, I remember how nervous I was. In retrospect, I am so glad that I made the right choice. Apart from preparing me for the rigor of university level courses, the IB has helped me hone countless skills ranging from collaboration to critical thinking to communication. It has truly helped me discover my true potential as a student and as a global citizen. Engaging in exciting CAS activities in my two years of IB has made me a more empathetic and compassionate human being. Engaging with Theory of Knowledge (TOK) has made me more open-minded .Just one month into college, I am starting to see how the IBDP has given me an edge over my other classmates. From academic writing to group presentations, I am continually employing the skills that I have developed in IBDP. They have made my transition into college so much smoother.
I will forever be grateful to HFS International for providing me with all the wonderful opportunities in my IBDP journey. My teachers were a constant source of support and motivation for me. They were always there for me through all my IBDP milestones. This warm and welcoming environment at HFSI truly sets it apart from other schools.
“When we moved from Germany in2015 to Mumbai we were looking out for International schools in Mumbai and we had several options. HFS International was the only one which checked of all our boxes!Transition from Germany to India was not easy for our son when he joined IGCSE in Grade 8 but the support and encouragement of principal Mrs.Patnaik , Ms Jagruti and all teachers ensured positivity and he could pursue studies and has nowcompletedhis IBDP.
Besides the innovative and caring teachers and study conditions HFS has friendly, family-like atmosphere thanks to their staff and students. I can tell you that we are very satisfied. I am, as a business leader, quite impressed on how little impact the impressive growth HFS International has experienced over the last years, has had on the children. Good work.
Thank you again for the great time that our son had at school and for preparing him very well for pursuing higher studies abroad

Parents of Om Chakravarthy (CAIE Grade VII) and Aadhavan Chakravarthy (IBDP II)
I am herewith sharing my experience about HFS International where my three children (Aditi Sishtla (IBDP Year 1, XI), Aditya and Apoorva Sishtla (CAIE Grade V) are currently studying.
When my family returned to Mumbai few years ago we were in search of a good school in Mumbai, preferably in Andheri - Powai - Ghatkopar areas for our three children.
My wife and I visited several well known Schools in the area offering ICSE, CBSE and IGCSE curriculum. We decided to opt for IGCSE after we are convinced that IGCSE pattern will help the kids to have a more holistic approach to education though the other curriculums do have their respective strengths.
Once we decided on IGCSE, we narrowed down to few Schools offering this curriculum and the final choice was HFS International School in Powai due to its track record, excellent infrastructure, experienced principal, teachers and well established IBDP stream as my daughter is intohigher classes and we would like her to seamlessly move into IBDP program after completion of her Std X.
Our children found the School and its environment very helpful with the teachers motivating them to do well in their academics and encouraging them to part of various extra curricular activities and sports.
In the current academic year, my daughter , Aditi Sishtla joined the IBDP program and she has been finding the program very helpful as she is able to choose diverse subjects of her interest across sciences and humanities and pursue the same. The teachers have been supportive of the students in making them understand and appreciate the fundamentals and their applications in industry.
We found the School's emphasis on inviting industry experts to explain relevant topics across subjects an excellent idea that will help broaden the exposure and understanding of the students. IBDP students are encouraged and helped in taking up various activities that form part of CAS. Well known global and local private universities are invited to share the details of under graduate programs for the benefit of the students.
We are happy with the progress being made by our three children in HFS International, with daughter in IBDP program and sons in IGCSE and feel good about our decision to choose HFS over other Schools.
We are sure that students of HFS International Will do exceptionally well in their IBDP program under your able leadership of HFS and pursue under graduate and higher studies as per their choice to develop into much sought after professionals by Industry.

"When we were shifting to Mumbai, we were clear with few options for our children’s schooling and HFSI was right on top of it. We were blessed to get both our sons admitted in the school and we can see them blossom into fine young minds with inquisitiveness to learn, confidence about themselves and being competent in what they do.
This won't be possible without the School's holistic system of experiential learning in subjects as well as co & extracurricular activities. What specially stands out to us is the exemplary and visionary leadership of the school head Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik Ma’am.
The School is focused in developing every student as an International citizen with a quest to excellence and I can see that in my children. They have a fantastic CAS program and Student guidance initiatives.
Excellent sports support system and highly appreciated Co-curricular activities. More than anything else, we know that our children are in the safe hands during their normative, formative and adolescent period, that gives us a great comfort.

Why I chose HFSI IBDP

"About three or four months back I was informed that we would be shifting to Mumbai and as I still wanted to continue doing the IB Diploma Programme, so we searched for some schools which offered the curriculum in Mumbai. My parents researched and found out that HFS was one of the best IB schools in Mumbai and after I attended a few classes I understood that they had made the right choice. The school offers loads of opportunities for IB, including a plethora of MUNs which I hope never end, as well as varied types of seminars and insightful workshops. The classes are interactive and quite engaging. I appreciate the school’s use of websites such as Kognity and Managebac which have helped me log my CAS hours till now and allowed me to revisit topics which I wanted to understand better. Moreover, the faculty has been extremely approachable every time and that is something that is very important especially in IB.I chose to stick with IBDP because it provides me opportunities on an international level and focuses on both critical and creative thinking as well as practical and theoretical applications of all subjects. It offers students the view of international-mindedness and aims to create a world where borders don’t limit intelligence."
