Parent Testimonials

Here's what some of our parents have to say about a B.D. Somani education.

Grade 4 Parent

Each child comes to school with his or her own set of strengths and weaknesses, but it is for the teacher, the school, to recognise that and accordingly plan out a development path for the child. We are glad our daughter isn't afraid to voice her thoughts here. We are glad her inquisitiveness is respected and satisfied with not just one line answer but a worthy classroom discussion. It's important for the children to feel assured that their teachers are listening to them, understanding them and making them understand what they so crave to learn. We are thankful that school's priority is to strengthen the skill sets in children, make them believe in their capabilities and allow them to struggle to get to the solution. Learning is important here - not mugging.

At B.D. Somani, every child’s individuality is recognised and respected. Using a progressive 21st-century curriculum, they work hard to equip our children with the skills they need not only to cope but also flourish in the ever-evolving world they live in. Every day my son is excited to go to school, where he is allowed to ask questions and encouraged to seek answers, in an environment where he feels comfortable enough to take chances, unafraid of failure. The small class size also means he gets plenty of attention. When he gets home he always has many anecdotes to share. The school is focused on raising happy, mindful children who are on their way to a lifetime of exciting discoveries.

My boys have been in B.D. Somani since Junior Kindergarten. They are in Grades 6 and 4 now. It has been the best learning experience for them. They love going to school. The teachers are excellent, always very approachable and there for my children when they need them. The hard work they put in to nurture our kids is amazing. I wish school could be a 365-day experience!

We have been part of the B.D. Somani family for six years now, with our two children attending school from Reception. As a multicultural family, we have always felt that our children's diversity was respected and valued, which was very important to us. We can see how the core values of the school match our own in that the focus is in preparing our children for a future that can take them anywhere in the world. B.D. Somani's academic approach - both in the core curriculum and the extra curricular activities offered - is at an international level. There is also an equally strong focus on instilling good social values. We are happy parents that feel our children are being prepared for the 21st-century.

Grade 1 Parent

Both my children look forward to school every single day. This single fact speaks volumes to me. Over the years, I have seen the school grow and shape into a wonderful centre for education. In spite of the challenges, it has been able to retain its focus on world class value based all round education. I was looking for a school that gives equal importance to all areas of development of the child, and B.D. Somani does justice to this. I'm pleased with the way my children are learning and growing here. I also appreciate the school's effort to keep its parents in the loop about child centric world education and attitude. I love the way all the Didis, Bhaiyyas and helping staff are acknowledged as being an important part of the school. Thank you, B.D. Somani!

B.D. Somani is a place where the students are challenged and thus encouraged to be engaged in all they do. It fosters a positive attitude to learning, where students are taught to embrace their mistakes and learn lessons from them. The friendly, nurturing educators make sure that they tap the child's potential, identify hidden talents of each student and make them independent by giving them responsibilities. The ambience at B.D. Somani is conducive to raising a healthy, ethical and a holistically developed child. Both my children have grown into confident individuals. We are proud to be a part of the B.D. Somani family.

There is a difference between literacy and education. B.D. Somani exemplifies everything a well-rounded education stands for under the excellent leadership of Ms Zoe Hauser. The school's core values match our values, and we truly appreciate the programs, the focus on teaching individual soft skills and social/behaviour skills combined with groups and teamwork. The 1:10 teacher student ratio and the small class size enables pupils to make most of their individual talents under the kind encouragement and guidance of the teachers. The students learn how to have healthy debates and share their opinions openly, and so competition becomes a catalyst for innovation and improvement (and not conflict). Brilliant initiatives, like forming the Student Council, not only sets discipline within the students but empowers them. Students at B.D. Somani are happy, confident and independent and unlike "studying" they truly enjoy the learning process; to the extent that my daughter wants to attend school even on weekends.

Junior Kindergarten Parent

My son has been going to B.D. Somani only for a year; he joined in Reception. We can't have asked for a better school for him. He loves going to school and feels very emotionally attached to his teachers, which is very important to us. We really like that B.D. Somani is so child-led in its approach and genuinely respects each child individually. The school encourages children to follow their developmental curve rather than enforce expected standards on to them. Building blocks and outdoor block play in the school day is a highlight for the younger children. I can safely say that my son's start to education has begun in the right place.

I decided on B.D. Somani for my child because of the dedication of the teachers towards the students and also because it is one of the only international schools in South Mumbai with a big ground.

Reception & Kindergarten Parent

B.D. Somani has brought out the best in my children. I love this school because it emphasises overall development and learning of the child and not just academics. Also, more importantly, the faculty is trained to cater to each child individually rather than adopting a one size fits all philosophy
