          My son studies here, and it is a most amazing institution. In keeping with J. Krishnamurthi's philosophy, students grow up to be mature, well-adjusted, responsible citizens of the planet, confident in themselves but without the dog-eat-dog competitiveness that marks so much of today's education.

          Studied here for my entire school life. Now that I've been out of The School KFI for a good number of years, I have great respect and love for the place, the teachers, my fellow students, the freedom they allow and teach us to allow in any space that we move into. There are experiences of great value here, if one just opens up to this school of thought. As an alumnus, I can say the student life here is a treat and a learning at the same time.
