Some Other Universities our Students Graduate to

Our extensive network of over 10,000 CHIREC alumni can be found working in top tier Indian and global organisations and leading in their diverse industries as successful professionals, entrepreneurs and positive changemakers.

My 15-year journey at CHIREC has simply been transformational. It has taught me the art of learning and allowed me to explore what I truly enjoy.

CHIREC’s IBDP had offered me the subjects of my choice and having experienced faculty differentiated CHIREC from other schools. The IBDP specifically enhanced my analytical and communication skills which have helped me in every facet of life – from founding my EdTech venture to being a CTO of a Fashion-Tech startup. Further, it geared me for my academic journey to pursue Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Waterloo.

Apart from leading the Interact Club, I also gained accolades in Taekwondo and Debating. I also made lifelong friends who supported me in my edification and continue to inspire me even today.

CHIREC has given me the opportunity to become a better version of myself and I made memories that I will cherish for a lifetime.

My experience at CHIREC has been incredibly enriching. What sets CHIREC’s IBDP program apart from other schools is its holistic approach to education. The school’s emphasis on real-life skills alongside academic rigor has been instrumental in shaping me. The teachers and management have empowered me to identify and pursue my goals, providing guidance and resources every step of the way. Throughout my IBDP program and college application journey, I received tailored guidance, access to relevant resources, and ample support that aligned perfectly with my choices and aspirations. This holistic approach has significantly contributed to my overall development and prepared me for challenges beyond the classroom.

Anshika Loomba, Alumnus, Batch of 2022

I’ve time and again said this to many people that my years at CHIREC have shaped me into the human being I am today. I’ve had the best teachers, the most fun set of classmates to grow up with and the best of facilities. There wouldn’t be a single thing that I would want to change. 

The school and my teachers played a massive role in laying the foundation for my future. Today, I am a Miss India, a TEDX speaker and a businesswoman and these are all things I started out with at CHIREC through fashion studies classes, competitions, business studies and my house captain post. These experiences helped me gain confidence and the right skill set, making me the person I am today. 

Praachi Nagpal, Alumnus, Miss India 2022 & Tedx Speaker, Batch of 2014

Hi everyone! I’m Sameeksha Reddy, the Head Girl of the CBSE section at CHIREC. I’ve been in CHIREC for 15 years and I’ve always considered it to be my second home. School has been my safe space where apart from learning immensely, I’ve grown into the person I am today. Recently, I’ve secured an All India Rank 125 and 5th rank in Telangana in CLAT, helping me pursue my interest in law from the best law university in the country. My teachers and peers at CHIREC have been extremely supportive, helping me do well in school while preparing for the entrance. Outside the classroom, I am the captain of the school volleyball team and have been learning Kuchipudi for 7 years, while performing in different government programs. I’ve also held the position of USG Marketing in the CHIREC MUN 2023. I am grateful for the entire CHIREC family for bringing out the best in me always, whether it is academics or extracurriculars.
