WHAT OUR COMMUNITIES ARE SAYING
Mr. Rakesh Radhakrishnan
Father of Ishika Mangatt (2B) and Yash Mangatt (11A)
“We all want to choose only the best for our kids and I believe I have taken the right decision by choosing Harvest International School for both my kids. Have been associated with the school since 2014 and feel proud watching my son grow from a 4th grader to a fine young man through these years. When it came to our younger daughter, we never thought about any other option. The management has left no stones unturned to ensure that quality education is provided to the kids. The science exhibitions, sports days, cultural activities, club activities, external competitions and many more events like that are moments my kids cherish. The faculties are highly competent and approachable. Under the recent changes forced upon us by the pandemic, HIS has adapted exceptionally well and put all the required technology in place and made the transition very smooth for the kids. Thank you Team Harvest and keep up the good work!”
Parent of Chirag, Class of 2018
"My son Chirag studied at Harvest for 6 years and through this time I have witnessed his transformation from a young boy into a wonderful young adult. The school has a strong scholastic and co-scholastic curriculum that truly helped Chirag in discovering his strengths and areas of improvement. I sincerely believe that Harvest International School truly lives up to their philosophy- “Education beyond Classrooms”; I found that Chirag has substantial knowledge into subject areas out of his academic syllabus which I discovered to be a product of Harvest’s unique way of teaching. I’m very grateful to the teaching staff for creating a wonderful learning environment for my son."
Student, Class of 2018
"My school has had a great impact on my life, it provided me with multiple opportunities to grow and discover my own potential. The academic infrastructure was well equipped, teachers were very patient and supportive with me. They encouraged me to pursue knowledge and passion, lessons I will cherish forever. Each and every day at school was intriguing and a lot of fun."
Student, Class of 2017
"The small cohort at Harvest International allowed me to get more facetime with my teachers and also helped in developing better relationships with my peers. I found the support provided to me by my teachers to be incredible, they helped me pick out my next area of study and guided me with college options and future opportunities. High School at Harvest will always be the most memorable experiences of my life."
Father of Dheeraj (Class of 2016)
“ My son had the complete schooling experience that I hoped he would receive when we took his admission in 2011. We have been part of the Harvest Family ever since its inception and we have never had any problem with the school. Harvest International gives a lot of importance to values and ethics alongside education, the school has great extra-curricular activities and workshops which my son found to be very inspiring and educational. The staff and admin were very accommodative to our needs and queries and I would definitely recommend Harvest International School for all students.”
Mr. K.S Nathan
Father of Shruthi Nathan (Class of 2019) and Sai Shyaam ( XB, Class of 2021)
“In 2014, we were truly blessed when both our kids got the opportunity to be a part of the Harvest International School, Bangalore. The guidance and support from the management as well as staff are just incredible. During the last seven years, we have come across teachers who are welcoming, informative and dedicated to the students. Harvest not only focuses on academics but also encourages students to be creative thinkers. Today they have both the CBSE and IB curriculums that can cater to a student’s needs and choices. I would recommend this school to everyone for it is the best school in Bangalore.”
Both my kids went to Cherubs Montessori and My kids were always eager to go to school and excited about doing something new every day. Kind of attention that all teachers, including the Principal Mrs. Vijaya, give to each and every kid in class should be applauded. They are very friendly and courteous. I also have enjoyed doing activities with my kids on Parents day/Father's day in their school. Overall I am very happy that my kids went to Cherubs Montessori.
