Student Testimonials

Here's what our students have to say about their experience at B.D. Somani

Ananya Dalal and Imaan Virji, Grade 6A

The excitement of coming into middle school came with the additional challenge of having to adapt to a whole new environment of learning. But our teachers have stood by our side, guiding us, encouraging us, motivating us, throughout our journey in 6th grade. From the inter-house competitions and the glorious laughs we had with our friends and teachers, to the difficulties and frustrations online schooling has brought us. The sixth grade will always be etched in our memories as the most ‘interesting’ year of our lives.

Aadit Shah, Anaya Singhi and Kasha Nia Sachdev, Grade 7

As frenzied students, class recordings and Managebac notifications made studying much easier and helped us track our work progress. Even though we completed our syllabus in online school, a part of us still wanted to relax on the bus and eat the canteen food. It is quite hard to focus on learning when you’d rather watch your dog chasing his tail than do a sheet of algebra sums. Overall, online schooling has been different in a good way.

Aditi Chhajed and Thea Jain, Grade 8A

This year has been an amalgamation of education and new approaches. Pre pandemic our school was a brick and mortar model (physical school) and during the pandemic we transitioned to the digital world very seamlessly. Each subject teacher has a unique manner of teaching which helps students towards constructive growth. We can say, post the pandemic we will have a “phygital” (physical or digital) model of schooling in which we will get the best of both worlds.

Junyi Zhang and Ayaana Shah, Grade 8C

Through online classes this year, I really enjoyed all the subjects and the engaging class discussions. Even the forms of assignments and assessments such as role plays, skits, infomercials, and others have really helped us showcase our creative side. All in all, online classes have been a new aspect of our lives and in the current situation of COVID-19, it has really been fun and beneficial to us in terms of learning and even getting to know one another.

Preetha Krishnan and Naisha Sahney, Grade 8B

While the lockdown took away all the classroom activities and trips, to our surprise, we were all well connected through the virtual world and we made many unforgettable memories in online classes such as reading Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe and Shakespeare in English, and various other interesting topics in Science and Math. I think many students can agree that we have an entire family here, in B.D.

Saniya Dossa, Grade 10

Other than academics, being a student at B.D Somani helps unleash our talent through the extracurricular activities that take place throughout the year such as debate competitions, MUNs, being a part of the sports teams, and many more. Lastly, with the help of strong relationships within the students and a strong bond between the student and teachers, my experience as a student was beneficial and enjoyable.

Agastya Kanthan Avasthi, Grade 10

Having been a BD Somani Student for 12 years now, I can confidently say that the School and its environment has played an integral role in shaping my personality, providing different experiences and the freedom to question. Extra-curricular activities, such as plays and competitions, encouraged us to work together as a team and discover new things, whilst constantly pushing us to reach our goal. Continually interacting with teachers from different disciplines throughout the years has enriched me with a diverse set of perspectives and broadened my worldview.

Maana Vora, Grade 9

My experience as a student of grade 9 in B.D. Somani International School has been thoroughly exhilarating. Even with the ups and downs of the current pandemic situation, the school faculty hasn’t failed to keep us thoroughly engaged. A student teacher rapport is by far the best thing of our school personally, each teacher is very approachable and keen to help out their students making us feel like home.

Chinmay Gupta, Grade 9

Joining B.D Somani has had a profound impact on my growth as a human being and student. Besides, the different ways of learning, coming to B.D. Somani has given me the opportunity to immerse myself in various extracurricular activities within the span of just a couple of years. The school has become my second home, giving everyone opportunities to showcase their talent whether it's learning about the stock market or participating in a murder mystery.

Khushi Munjani, Grade 11

From the first day of 5th grade to the first day of 11th grade, from physical school to virtual school, from being the first ones entering the school gate to staying in school past 7 pm, I saw it all. What I have learnt through these years is that if I dream something, it will always come true even if it at the moment it may seem impossible. BD Somani is my second home and the community that we have created turns more into a family with every passing day.

Ryka Mehra, Grade 11

BD Somani has not only given us a chance to grow as individuals but also encouraged us to create bonds that last forever. This school has created a learning environment that inspires its students to ‘be different’ rather than fit in with the crowd, therefore allowing us to be the best versions of ourselves.

BDSIS was home to me for 13 years of my life. Having spent 70% of my life on campus, I know for a fact that BDSIS prepares you for life. The freedom and encouragement students get from the faculty is unparalleled, allowing one to grow to their fullest extent. I love my second home.

Rony Chaudhari, Grade 12

My experience at B.D Somani has been an enjoyable and teaching one. The school's strength comes from the genuine concern students and faculty have for each other. The school fosters an environment that encourages academic excellence without coercing students and in doing so encourages students to explore their interests. The school's flexibility and understanding helped me balance and excel in both sports and academics.
