|"As an IB student at HFS, I never felt overwhelmed by the vastness of the curriculum. From the very first orientation, the school and the teachers made the students embrace the qualities of an IB learner, and facilitated a smooth transition into this new curriculum. There was a balance of rigorous classroom studies and extracurricular experiences. For instance, I was a part of multiple CAS trips that ranged from working with an NGO to teach children in a village in Ambewadi to a cross-cultural interactive session with a school in Vietnam. Moreover, the school facilitated a constant exposure to a diverse array of professional opportunities and ideas with regular talks from professionals from various fields and an internship program which provided insightful hands-on workplace experiences. Although there were several strict deadlines that we|
|had to adhere to for our extended essays and subject coursework, I was able to stick to the submission timelines due to the constant support from my subject teachers with discussions and feedback sessions. Overall, I value the collection of experiences I've had at this school which have built a firm foundation for my future endeavours."|
|"Hiranandani Foundation School International is a school that provides students with a highly valued IB education while expecting the best out of each student. The faculty of the school is great with teachers who make sure to guide every student through each path allowing them to reach towards their potential. The teachers also make sure to make use of several techniques such as PowerPoints and videos for the students to understand the subject better. Over my 5 years in this school, I have also gotten the opportunity to participate in several events such as the HFSMUN and [email protected] 2019 which helped me build public speaking skills essential for the future. The school also gave me the opportunity to organize and host my own HFSI Inter-House Conclave which was a great experience that helped me improve my event organization and research skills. The school also provides students with labs for the students to perform scientific experiments for better learning. I also got the opportunity to participate in several sporting events such as the HFSI Sports Day and aquatic meet which allowed me to develop an interest in athletics and gave me more experience in this field.|
|Hiranandani Foundation School is overall a well-balanced school with a great IB curriculum, faculty, infrastructure, and provides several opportunities for students. I highly appreciate everything the faculty members have done to help me whenever I had any problems throughout my 5 years at HFS International. The school has helped me prepare for successful future endeavors."|
|"When I was done with 10th grade, I decided to do IB. As soon as I made this decision, I knew that I wanted to do it in HFS international because of its well known reputation. I have met the most supportive teachers and the most supportive principal here. HFS made me feel like I was a part of a huge family and made me comfortable. I have learnt a lot of things, even if I took too long to understand something, the teachers would sit with me until I understand the concept. I am extremely thankful to everyone to HFSI for building me as a person."|
|"The moment I walked through the doors of HFSI for the first time back in June 2018, I instantly felt that the school would be a second home to me. When I decided to switch my curriculum from ICSE to IB in my 10 th grade, I assumed that this transition would initially be rough for me .However, right from the first day of school , HFSI has persistently supported me to thrive as a student in a curriculum as challenging and unique as the IB. My teachers at HFSI have been a constant pillar of support and source of motivation throughout my IB experience. I cannot express enough gratitude for all the wonderful opportunities and experiences that the school has given me over these past two years. These opportunities have collectively helped me to hone my leadership, collaboration and public speaking skills. More importantly, my experience at HFSI has helped me to evolve into a compassionate and responsible global citizen. I am glad that I spent my final years of high school at HFSI."|
|"Having shift multiple schools across multiple countries from a very young age has never been easy. Understanding the school and wholly becoming a part of it resulted in another shift. HFSI helped me understand ‘home away from home’ in very short span of time. I sit writing this as the Head Girl for years 2019-2020 and as the [email protected] Executive Producer and this would not have been possible if it weren’t for my respected teachers, principal, co-ordinator and my friends. Throughout my two years, I have never been left without a hand. Every step of the way, the school has been involved to ensure pre-eminent results and have succeeded at every stage. The variety of opportunities given to a student sparks the untapped potential in each and every individual and paves a clearer path for their|
|future. Our elite HFSMUN,our exponentially growing [email protected], Debates, and many more competitions bring together a large group of diverse individuals who are given a stage to display their spectrum of talent which is only watered further to full potential. My short yet sweet journey in the school has made me a more holistic and an independent individual which I plan on taking forward and implementing at every step of the way in the future."|
|"Being a part of HFSI for the past two years has been an incredible and important journey in my life. Attending HFSI has not only enhanced my academic stature, but also moulded me into a mature person.I met some amazing friends who helped me through thick and thin. Although we have had some healthy competitions, supporting each other was our utmost priority. My teachers were very delightful, as I could approach them anytime, and they would extend nothing but their best to assist me. I will be specialising in either Neuroscience or Molecularbiology and biotechnology at University of Toronto. It’s an honour to be known as a part of HFSI and that is something I will keep close to my heart. –"|
Parents’TestimonialAt HFSI, education and entertainment happens concurrently. The incredible support from the staff has made the experience at HFSI remarkable. - Mr. And Mrs.Prabhu
|"I’ve been a student at HFS International since 8th grade in 2015. Over the course of 5 years, HFS International has provided me a number of opportunities for me to explore my interests and find the most suitable for me in terms of academics. It was due to the amazing teachers and their teaching style which got me interested in the subject of my choice: economics. HFS also let me explore my interests in extra-curriculars by introducing me to a wide variety of options over the years such as MUNs and Basketball. Due to the constant support of the teachers, I was able to become part of the basketball team from grades 9 – 12 and was the honored with the position as the School MUN Secretary in my final year."|
|"The IB curriculum is known as a rigorous and exhausting program which challenges students to their core. The past 2 years have therefore, without a doubt, been extremely demanding. Hence, having a school that supports you through such a curriculum and guides you in every step is extremely essential. Throughout my time in HFSI, I have received the mentorship required by a student trying to navigate through the IB diploma program and have found my teachers to be very approachable. Along with academic support, one always looks for extra curricular experiences to enrich their life and HFSI strives to provide an environment for its students which supports their academic pursuits along with lively activities to complement their high school experience."|
|"Really thankful to HFSI for the turning point in my daughter's life. I still remember the day we came here seeking admission in ISC for her. The Head of the Institution personally addressed us and we got introduced to this beautifully chalked out IBDP programme. We happily opted for the same. With an able programme Coordinator and student friendly Class teacher, their very knowledgable Theory of Knowledge teacher, and various other qualified and experienced subject teachers, the school maintained transparency with parents throughout the two years. It was wonderful watching my daughter evolve into a lovely human being with better leadership qualities and people management skills as the school ensured overall development of the students, with national and international exposure, practical knowledge, touching human lives and not just the grades.It has always been a pleasure getting to attend various events that the school constantly organises and lets the DP students actively take responsibility preparing them for their future endeavours. Extremely happy to be part of HFSI family for the value it has added in lives of all students and us parents.The location and facilities the school provided were all as per our expectations.

|"I, Dron Dasgupta of IBDP-2, am proud to say that I completed my two senior-most years of secondary schooling at Hiranandani Foundation International School. These two years have been a remarkable experience, and I am glad to have been a part of them. Everything from the challenging and rewarding IBDP curriculum to the events like the Sports Day and HFSMUNs has been a memorable experience wherein everyone has found something to learn. The school provided us with many resources to keep track of our progress, such as ManageBac and Kognity. The teaching staff at the school has been especially valuable. The teachers were supportive and dedicated to bringing the best out of every student under their tutelage. I thank them for charting our course for this two-year journey, and for encouraging me to do my absolute best in every assignment."|
|"Our daughter Madiha’s two years at HFS International IBDP Powai have been a boon which has helped her to transit and adapt from her SSC curriculum to International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. We are glad about our decision to enrol Madiha for the IB curriculum at HFS Powai. Her association with HFS Powai has been instrumental and motivational as she got the needed platform and base required for her further UG level degree course in UK University. The teachers at HFS International Powai are caring, professional and well organised. The atmosphere in HFSI Powai has been found to be very warm and friendly leading and resulting in a happily bonded teacher student relation. They have been helpful in motivating, moulding and grooming our daughter. She has managed to learn in a self reinforced way. The two years at HFSI Powai and her interaction with the faculty and students have made her more active, self confident and self reliant. She has managed to discover her own personality. We appreciate and are thankful to the Principal, Co-ordinator and teachers for their efforts, guidance and support. They have certainly managed to create and establish the much needed teacher student friendly environment binding at HFSI Powai. We wish good luck, further success and more laurels to HFSI IBDP Powai to be at the top in imparting knowledge and education."|

Although, these 2 years of IBDP have been very taxing and stressful, under the guidance of experienced faculty of HFSI everything went smooth. The supportive attitude and guidance provided by the head of school, Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik has not only helped me glide through the challenging IBDP but has also made me become a focused personality.

I was able to interact and discuss ideas with several intelligent peers and extremely knowledgeable teachers who gladly answered all my questions - even ones not from the syllabus. The teachers are very approachable and helped me at every stage through the IBDP. HFS also provided us with many extra-curricular opportunities which helped me during my college applications."

The best thing abut HFS is that there are many opportunities for growth, both personal and professional, if you persevere and are proactive in seeking them.
I will be majoring in Biological Sciences at Harvard, with a minor in History."

"HFS is the best school in the world, in my opinion. Why? Our Campus is a new one. Built big with 5 floors, with a private and personal floor only to the IB. The school has a library with a huge collection of books. The teachers are very helpful and knowledgeable. If education is valuable to you, seek it here at HFS. Our principal is very enthusiastic about bringing our IB program into every student."
