The HDFC school has been the best decision for our sons. The management and the teachers are very professional, enthusiastic and compassionate for all-around development of the students. The learning methods are a perfect balance of experiential and traditional techniques. The school focuses on developing good values in children. The class strength is good enough for teachers to provide individual attention to each and every child. The support staff is also very gentle and caring towards the children. It is our sons’ second year with the HDFC school and we can already see them evolving and their interests developing in reading, elocution, art, dance etc. They love going to school and are missing it dearly in these Covid times.'

My kids Srishti Gupta and Krrish Gupta, have been a part of the HDFC family from the last two years. They get the right blend of academics, sports, co-curricular activities and many opportunities. Moreover, here at HDFC, my kids got the right exposure to showcase their talents. The teachers here, are 24x7, available and are always motivating the students to perform their best and work hard.
Though the virtual mode sounds to be a little boring and quixotic, but for us there is no difference between the virtual and the physical mode of learning. My kids love every member of the HDFC family and they just never want to miss a day of the school. My kids are blessed to be a part of such a great institution.

When the earth is coping with the pandemic and none of us imagined that we have to study on an online medium, I wanted to express something that’s coming in mind about this new method of teaching. We are now able to see your teaching style, pronunciation, language, courage and persistence. Although the concepts to be taught to a first-class student are really simple and every parent can teach but the kind you handle kids is really awesome. Apart from this, teachers have to cope with the language issues of children, which is really commendable.

My daughters Ms Nitika Sood and Ms Anya Sood have joined The HDFC School this year. I am writing to you to share my experience so far. I was very apprehensive about the girls settling in the new environment esp given the fact that they have moved schools within Gurgaon. However, their respective class teachers, Mrs Puneet Rahi and Mrs Ritu Kalla, made this very easy. They have supported both my daughters in ways which go beyond the call of duty for which I will forever be grateful.
The unfortunate circumstances which have arisen second to the COVID crisis are unprecedented but have been handled brilliantly by your skilled team under your able leadership. Not once have I felt hesitant in asking a question, raising a concern. It has been dealt with promptly and proactively. The virtual lessons are interesting as well as engaging and have helped keep a structured routine for the children which has been a tremendous help.
The sensitive approach of the school post the declaration of the 10th board results deserve a special mention. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you as well as the entire team of teachers for all your efforts and dedication. The HDFC School will definitely soar to great heights given the dedication of the whole team. I would also like to thank all the administrative staff at the backend who have worked so hard to make the whole operation a smooth sail. A special note of thanks once again to Ms Puneet Rahi, Ms Ritu Kalla, Anadi Sir, Shalu Ma’am, Jagriti Ma’am, Ms Renu Joshi and Anu Ma’am. Thank you for letting us be a part of the HDFC family.

We as parents of Dhriti Maheshwari(grade 7)and Khushi Maheshwari ( grade 11) are happy to be a part of the HDFC family.

My Daughter Siya Agrawal who is studying in KG D has been a part of the school since nursery and having seen her progress over the last 1.5 years, I can comfortably say that choosing The HDFC was the right decision I made for her. The initial years are extremely critical for a child’s development -getting the right school is of utmost importance, and as a mother I strongly believe that The HDFC ticks all the right boxes – be it academics, ECAs, sports, safety, or an overall well-being of the child. I made a decision which I am very happy with!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank school team members for nurturing my son. I really appreciate your efforts and support for providing quality education, moral ethics, and molding him towards the path which surely will lead him to the right direction. It was really good to see that school responding quickly to the unknown situations like covid and continuing the education systematically. It's a privilege and not an obligation to get education in the HDFC School. Thanks for planting the seeds of knowledge.

Every child has his strengths and weak areas. Building on strengths is not easy but it is much more difficult to turn weaknesses into strengths. And HDFC school achieved this impossible. SST was one subject that Aaradhya simply hated, more so since it involved theory, rote learning and the syllabus was enormous. But thanks to experienced teachers at school, we could clearly see him transitioning from hating the subject to loving it by the end of class 10. Economics seemed to interest him a lot and History, Civics, Geography did not seem like a burden to him any longer. Similar story for Hindi, from struggling to write simple Hindi to a point in time when he got so attracted to Hindi poetry that he loved reciting it for recreational purposes – this was something we could not imagine few years back.
Besides academics, he got lot of exposure in public speaking and immense confidence. All teachers and even Principal ma’am are very helpful and approachable and we can work together with them for getting the best out of our children.
Class : IX A
We love HDFC School. Our daughter has attended HDFC school for one year so far and we are truly amazed to see her growth in terms of learning and socializing. The creative and innovative methodology used by the HDFC teachers makes learning a very engaging and fun task for children. We are so thankful to HDFC for providing an enriching, comforting, fostering environment to our child to let her grow academically and socially.

We moved to Gurgaon from a tier 2 city and were not sure about a lot of things, one of them being the school. When we came across the HDFC school, we knew that this is where we would like our son to get the education and life skills from. The teachers in the school are well qualified and highly experienced. The curriculum is upto the mark and is not behind in extra curricular activities and sports. My son loves to go to the school everyday and enjoys his time there. I would recommend this school to all the parents out there.
Class : II B
The HDFC School, Gurgaon is an epitome of knowledge and over all development of the child. The school at every occasion has surpassed our expectations when it comes to my daughter's development as a human being.
I must acknowledge the efforts and skills of the class teacher "Manjusha Prajapati". Her eye for detail, undivided focus on development of each child is commendable.
Class : I D
I would like to congratulate the Principal and teachers of HDFC school for being able to conduct online classes very efficiently.
Children feel as if they are in school. They enjoy the prayer time, circle time, fruit break, various activities and games that teachers include in their teaching methodology. It is commendable that teachers are able to get the attention and interest of the child even when they are remotely situated. My best wishes and sincere thanks to the entire HDFC team.

The HDFC School is like a wave of fresh air in the education system of today. The curriculum is full of experiential learning that includes audio- visual teaching, involvement of kids and quick and forever learning. The teachers love the students so much that the children wish to go to school and are missing the school in the current pandemic. The education system ensures all round development of the child. I have seen a big positive change in my child ever since he joined The HDFC School Gurgaon.
Class : 2B
It’s being 3 years since we admitted our children to The HDFC School, Gurgaon. The journey of our kids so far with the school has been very satisfying and fulfilling. We have observed sea change in both our children. They have become more confident and communicative. They are fairing well in studies and sports as well. The school provides a fair blend and equilibrium of academics, sports, personal well being and co curricular activities. The low student teacher ratio provides more attention and focus towards the kids. This also helps in course correction if the kid departs from its path. The teachers pay lot of attention towards each and every student. The school promotes and encourages 100 percent participation of their students in various activities ! We as parents we feel blessed that our kids are part of The HDFC school.
Class : VI A
I would love to appreciate teacher’s effort during this pandemic situation. The amount of hard work Gargi ma'am is putting is commendable. She is putting hard yards to make children comfortable and study. We are also thankful to HDFC school to keep the studies going via online channel during these testing times.
Class: 2 A
We are extremely happy with our choice to join the kids in HDFC school, an excellent academic and extracurricular programme in a safe and comfortable environment. The curriculum provides superior learning experience, in both personalised as well collaborative ways. It has been already 2 years and we are very happy and proud to see our little ones stepping up in their learning and development. We acknowledge the great efforts of the teachers in developing the kids excel in their all-round development by constant focus and tailored ways of coaching. It is incredible to see great ways of handling virtual classes and engaging the kids to cope up, conducting webinars for parents to understand and be relevant during this new normal. We appreciate the greatest efforts of the whole HDFC school team in nurturing the kids excel and grow to become independent and responsible. Thank you!

"Our son Tanish joined HDFC under difficult circumstances. When we moved to Gurgaon in 2017 beginning, Tanish first joined a well-known international school. However, the effort from the school to integrate him was poor and we decided to change schools within 6 months. We heard about HDFC having recently started the school, led by Mrs Makkar who has a great reputation. We met Mrs Makkar and Mrs Ruba Chakraborty (the school coordinator), both of whom made us comfortable. Ruba madam patiently had a long interaction with Tanish, addressing his concerns and questions. Tanish felt happy to join the school and has not looked back since. Ruba madam continued to check on him to ensure that he was integrating well and she continues to be available even now for any discussion.
Education is definitely about academics but also about growth as an individual. HDFC encourages children to maintain their core personalities. Teachers are grounded and have an open outlook while guiding students from a long term point of view. Just a couple of examples.
1) Tanish was able to understand and explain some concepts in science via flowcharts. The teacher found the idea interesting and communicated accordingly to Tanish. At the same time she also patiently explained to him how important it is to also be able to write the answers in a certain way as per CBSE format. 2) After finishing one of his SST exams much before the allotted time, Tanish had drawn a comic strip on the question paper. The teacher did not ask him to stop drawing but instead gently coached him that as a practice he should revisit his answers before handing over the answer paper.
Academically, the teachers also put in extra efforts by offering extra classes for students who may have missed some school or needed additional support on some topics.
Tanish was actively encouraged to express himself, be his creative self and is given opportunities to share them on a platform. e.g. The music teachers put in a lot of effort to help improve his singing. The positive environment is created not only in areas which they are good at, but also the environment motivates children to try to improve in areas which they are not so good at. e.g. The PE teachers ensure that the sessions are interesting and inclusive.
The school also offered opportunities to participate in many external activities/competitions etc., which we appreciate. Last but not the least, all the support team including administrative staff (receptionist, transport coordinator, security, drivers, cleaning staff etc) are friendly and provide silent and quick care to all children.
We thank the entire HDFC school team for creating a good learning environment.

"The HDFC school is a great school which provides the right balance of academics, sports and co curriculum activities to its students. They have an optimistic outlook to the ever-changing environment or circumstances. The regular parent teacher meetings are also a great practice adopted in the HDFC school. We are really happy to have chosen this school for our child."

Our association with The HDFC School Gurgaon started exactly a year back upon our return to India from a foreign country stint. We were keen to ensure that our Primary school going daughters continued their education at a school which considers holistic growth rather than only bookish learning as prime focus and we are so glad to have chosen this school.
The pedagogy and teacher-student association has been excellent and we have felt our kids enjoy classes so much they haven’t feared going to school and prefer actual school over the online classes. The extra-curricular activities like the Inter Disciplinary Activity has made learning fun for the students while making parents also feel part of their learning journey. We look forward to such creative events and interactions.
Special thanks to all teaching and non-teaching staff at The HDFC School and we look forward to continuing this special learning journey of our kids with you.

Despite the fact that HDFC school is very young school when compared to others, still the professionalism is there and they seem to know what they are doing.
Also being part of one of India’s biggest corporate group, it gives us a sense of security that the school will become better and better as time passes.
Class : II E
The HDFC school is a great institution which I feel imparts knowledge & life values like no one else. Their methodology is quite inclusive which helps in holistic teaching & development both in school and at home. The parent, teacher & in general interactions with school staff is quite unique as well as consistent.
Besides studies & books, the kids are encouraged to participate in various other activities like dance, music, pottery, celebrating festivals & innumerable other tasks which ultimately tie in with the primary objective of learning & acquiring life values.
The other thing worth mentioning is how the kids develop self confidence owing to the public speaking opportunities they get - like interdisciplinary projects , show & tell, recitation, etc. And most importantly, I am quite convinced that the amount of personal care & attention that is given to each child in HDFC is unparalleled.
I would recommend The HDFC school to all for their love of teaching, their love for children & how they amalgamate academics with life values which ultimately make the child a better person empowered with confidence & right education.
Class : V B, KG E
Choosing the right school is one of the biggest conundrums all parents face in this age. I moved to Gurgaon 02 years back from Ahmedabad and finding the right school for my kid was my most critical decision. Like most parents, we visited a lot of schools, talked to fellow parents, read online reviews for various schools. Being from a Forces background, I had the easy option of choosing Air Force School or Army School for our child but we were not satisfied. In Feb 2018, we met Principal ma'am (Mrs. Makkar) and that made my decision very easy to join HDFC school. She asked me what my expectations were from school. I told her that I have only two expectations: channelizing the massive pool of energy of kids in the right direction of learning and trying to make them good human beings for the future.
I'm glad to say that I see a very positive environment with the right learning platform. Not only do the teachers put immense amounts of effort ( and patience) to teach young kids but they are also helping each child realize their potential. Every child in the classes participates in sports, music, cultural activities, yoga (to name a few). Every child is encouraged to learn public speaking. My child yearns to go to school everyday and I see small, gradual and continuous improvements in him.
If I had to revisit my decision of 2018, I would enrol my kid again in this school. We wish the best of luck to school under the able guidance of Mrs. Makkar and convey our heartfelt thanks in being a big part of the life journey of our children.

The HDFC School did not happen to us by chance. When I shifted to Gurgaon from Mumbai in 2017, we were looking for a good school and an overwhelming recommendation from my trusted friends was The HDFC School. Although the school had started couple of years back only, but, speaking to Mrs Anita Makkar, the principal Ma'am only sealed the confidence exuded by my friends. The teachers are qualified, intelligent, polite and receptive of suggestions. The student teacher ratio of 15 is I believe the best in any school. The high standard of education, use of latest tools, individual attention to every student etc., all reflect in the growth that I have seen in my child for the last couple of years. My daughter's hold on the fundamental concepts is great. More than anything else, she is growing into an independent thinking and confident person and I would like to attribute it largely to the School. I wish all the success to the HDFC School’

Most Respected Makkar Mam I feel extremely happy to submit my words of appreciation for all the teachers of Grade 5 led by Mrs Subhalaxna Bhardwaj and of course Mrs Divya Malhotra for grade 2. To begin with I didnot expect much from online classes but these teachers have really surpassed themselves and truly with held the honour of being an educationist. The time and effort these ladies put in without ever asking or mentioning is beyond duty! We as parents feel privileged to have our kids guided by them .
