It allows us to follow any subject we are passionate about in-depth. Our teachers additionally made us analyze and understand every concept and situation.

Ranjini Krishnaswami, director of Billabong International School, said, “We have always believed in the abilities of each of our students. While I am proud of each of them, it is performance like Maya’s that reminds me of the joys of my vocation. We have provided students with all facilities, but it is their extra efforts that have brought them to these heights.”
