FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Welcome to Billabong High International School, Malad. Shaping young, impressionable minds is one of life’s biggest challenges.
While respecting traditional values, we at Billabong High International School believe that only progressive education and a programme of studies will empower the students to lead fulfilling and productive lives in a changing world. We believe that academic learning is most effective when it is based upon active learning experiences, creative problem-solving and critical thinking.
Our distinctive academic programmes and innovative teaching methodologies encourage students to develop critical-thinking and learn through enquiry and reason, to exchange thoughts and ideas, to develop key personal and social values, to take ownership for his/ her choices and to set goals to realize their own unique potential.
We aim to empower our students to grow as individuals with strong open discerning minds with an international perspective, preparing them to make a mark in the global village - the world has come to be today.
To sum up with the famous quote of Kahlil Gibran:
"You may give your children your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday"
Dr. Madhu Singh
LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER
“Leaders never say 'I'. They don't think 'I'. They think 'we'; they think 'team'. The 'team' functions with responsibility and without disrespect to anyone, and each person gets the recognition and satisfaction of a job well done.'”

Nithya Samanta (Parent of Ayan Samanta)
I am the parent of Ayan samanta, who completed his grade 10 from Billabong high, Malad.
As a parent, who had both her daughter and son in Billabong high since 10 years( yes, a decade, including those seven years in Bilabong high, Bhopal), there are no words to describe what the school or the brand means to me. Billabong High, with its enriching curriculum, encouraging faculty and Principal, and boisterous, ever-active, always-involved children, have given some fun, some endearing and some beautiful moments in our lives.
We miss Billabong high and it’s spitit now, but we know that it will always be a part of us, wherever my children go. Thanks Billabong High for all the motivational and enriching moments of my sons and daughters life.
Sreetama Mishra (Mother of Vedantika Mishra, Grade 2F)
I would like to take this platform to Thank BHIS Team for their dedication, curriculum and pattern of teaching..
My Daughter Vedantika Mishra was in class 1D last year, where she was taught about Egypt.
I am amazed by the way the teachers have taught each and every minute and important aspects about the country and their culture..
The teaching in class was so much into the child, that we decided to take her for a vacation to Egypt this summers.
We gave her the opportunity to design and choose the places she wishes to visit. The responsibility was so exciting for her since she knew almost everything to visit in the country, more than what we knew. The moment we landed in Cairo we started visiting places; she was always with the guide exchanging her knowledge...
I strongly suggest that the school should plan a trip to the places they teach in the higher classes...
Alas, kudos to Pooja Miss and Jigna Miss for being so patient to the kids and making them understand almost everything about the country without being a part or visiting...
Once again a big thumps up to the team and the methods of teaching.
Chuck Grassley once said, “What makes a child gifted and talented may not be always be good grades in school, but a different way of looking at the world and learning.”
Without a doubt, Billabong High International School, from the students, to the teachers, to the principal believes in building an environment in which the students’ natural abilities are nurtured, enabling them to reach their full potential. These 9 years have been a wonderful journey as BHIS is full to the brim with world-class, good-humored and truly friendly students, terrific and dedicated staff, top-notch administrators, an inspirational principal and super-supportive teachers. I am so proud to have been able to call BHIS home since 2008.
I felt continuously challenged to push myself to excel in both, academic and sports. The school has gone above and beyond in supporting me in my interest for table-tennis. Hence after 6 years of playing table-tennis, I’m now able to play international tournaments as well keep up with the school academics. Undoubtedly, a large part of the person (student as well as sports-person) I become will be thanks to the excellent years I have spent here.
I sincerely thank all my teachers, principal and classmates for all that they have done to make my days at BHIS the wonderful ones that they have been… it has truly been a pleasure!
Yukta Chowdhury (passed grade 12 science)
"The two years spent in Billabong High International, was indeed a great experience. I came out with the knowledge of how to make my studies a priority rather than just saying it is. And I am grateful to my teachers and other staff members for providing the proper environment, resources and support to reach my goals, as well as help me in my overall development."
