Hyderabad Public School is one of the best schools in India. Looking at the list of alumni, it can also be called the best in the world. The school at Begumpet in Hyderabad has created executives of many reputed organizations in the world. Among them is Satya Nadela, CEO of a world-renowned company like Microsoft. There are Shantanu Narayan, CEO of Adobe, and Ajaypal Singh Banga, Executive Chairman of MasterCard (who was CEO until last year).

Satya Nadela heimself gave that information in an interview given in 2018 with the American journalist Stephen Dabner. Then the world's media went in search of the school. One news after another started to be published.

According to CNBC, at the beginning of the interview with Dabner, Nadela wanted to dismiss the fact that Narayan and Banga were in the same school as coincidences. But Dabna is also a Ghaghu journalist. He leaves easily. He wants to know the contribution of the school in his native India or Hyderabad in Nadela's life. Finally, the CEO of Microsoft admitted. "I believe that I have benefited from the specific structure of the education system in that country," he said.

The question is, how did a school in Hyderabad become the head of so many world-renowned institutions?

Education is not limited to the classroom

Acknowledging the contribution of Hyderabad Public Schools (HPS) in his life, Nadela said, "One of the best aspects of the school is that students get the opportunity to engage in various activities outside the classroom according to their interests."

Nadela thinks HPS contributes a little differently to the lives of students. "Shantanu was controversial, I was a cricketer and we all learned a lot there," he said.

According to the survey, students who get the opportunity to participate in various co-educational activities also get good marks in general examinations. A study by the National Center for Education Statistics in the United States found that organizing co-curricular activities also increased student pass rates. HPS also offers mountaineering and horse racing, among other co-educational activities.

Former HPS principal Ramandwip Kaur Sharma told The Economic Times, ‘HPS creates commanders, not infantry. We want our students to lead. That is their wish. Whether small or big, but with heart. '

Teaches to be positive

"Above all, it gives us the freedom to think, learn and dream big," said Nadela, who believes HPS has taught him and his classmates to think big.

The Stanford University School of Medicine in the United States once surveyed 240 children between the ages of 7 and 10, reporting that if positive, children could solve more mathematical problems, improve problem-solving skills and improve memory.

"I was very shy and introverted when I started school, HPS gave me confidence," a student at The School told The Economic Times.

Nadela went to his school in 2017. At the time, he said, going to school was one of the highlights of his life. He also first met his wife Anupama Nadela at a Hyderabad public school.
