A school is known to be one’s foundation and I am happy that mine was Beacon High!

I joined Beacon high school when I was in 8th grade. Being dyslexic and dyscalculic and ADHD my earlier school years were tough. My parents wanted me to receive the ICSE education but with learning aid; and that’s how we came by Beacon High. My two sisters as well went to school with me.

Beacon high for me has truly been a life savior if I am to say so. The principal and teachers there were not only good educators but also wonderful motivating mentors. I had remedial sessions which were extremely beneficial to my growth in education as well as in extracurricular. The school brought about a sense of healthy competition and fun every day, with small nuggets of learning in different subjects via quizzes, debates, drama shows, educational trips, and various learning aids during classroom sessions. In summary, I walked in as a shy timid girl who was completely lost with what she was to do in life… and when I graduated out of school I walked out honing so many hidden abilities in sports, art, drama, debate, and a sense of confidence and leadership via my house captaincy and the wonderful friends and educators that I met.
I believe the beacon really came through within and with me.

Thank you.

Singer | Live Performer

I’m a playback singer and a live performer. I have been singing for various projects for films, television and advertising jingles and have had the privilege to work with some of the most eminent composers from the music industry, over the years.

I have had the honour to be a part of prestigious projects like the song ‘Laila Main Laila’ from the film Raees,

MTV Coke Studio, MTV Unplugged, Indian Sports Honours 2019; to be the lead voice of the Star Plus Anthem ‘Rishta Wahi Baat Nayi’ and the title track of the popular TV show ‘Balika Vadhu’ Season 2.

I have been learning music since the age of 4 and Beacon High was where I began my journey of performing publicly. The school annual days and carnivals (Beacon Blaze), alongwith the opportunity to represent my school at inter-school competitions gave me a platform to hone my skills as a musician and showcase my talent as a performer.

I have been fortunate enough to be associated with Beacon High, right from it’s inception. I was a part of the first batch that was promoted from Small Wonders to Beacon High. I still remember the day my parents had taken me to Small Wonders for my interview with Mrs. Khariwalla and Mrs. Jamali at the age of five. Right after my first interaction with Mrs. Khariwalla, I knew that she is somebody who is going to have a major impact on me for life. She has always been and will always be an inspiration to me.

Beacon High has been an integral part of my development as an individual, not just in terms of academic growth but also in terms of my overall personality development. During my journey as a student through Grade I to Grade X, I have experienced that the teachers have always focused on imparting knowledge and values beyond the textbooks and have encouraged curiosity and the constant quest for learning. I think I carry those values with me even today and that has helped me in my career and my overall approach towards life.

Always grateful to Mrs. Khariwalla, Mrs. Jamali, Mrs. Shehnaaz Sumaya (Whom we fondly called Miss Sherry) and all my teachers and non teaching staff at Beacon High for an incredible school life and memories that I will cherish for a lifetime.

Beacon High wasn’t just a school for me, it was a second home. It prepared me not just for college but life itself.

The creativity and strength of will I possess today was unlocked at Beacon High. It gave me an immense amount of freedom to pursue knowledge and skills far beyond that of a typical school.

The school has an amazing ability to attract top people who work for the love of teaching. The teachers always  encouraged me when I needed it the most.

With the guidance of my principal and teachers I gained self responsibility and personal empowerment.

Thank you for always guiding us and showing us the right path. It’s schools like this that dont only teach but also makes sure that it also reaches out to each every student and makes a big difference to every child that it touches upon.

Mere words do not do justice to the institution that has taught each student to face the highs and lows of life. Beacon High means much more than a school to me; my first steps towards development. A place where confidence is instilled in your system. Apart from the academics being exceptional with the curriculum carefully segregated so as to enhance every students learning ability, this school has worked very hard at developing each students’ character; the way they present and express themselves in the most professional manner. Every member in the school is extremely dedicated, supportive and accessible. The level of attention to developing a student is second to none at Beacon High, ensuring an excellent involvement between a student and teacher. It is a wonderful place for students to thrive and prepare themselves for the opportunities ahead!
