Creating impact in lives of millions through the
power of one community
Who are we?
High School Moms is Asia's leading parent community which empowers parents to guide their children in choosing a rewarding and fulfilling career. Through open ideas, storytelling, and meaningful connection, the HSM revolution comes to life. High School Moms promotes learning from each other, informing, engaging, and inspiring parents and children for a better future. Presently we are a community with a reach to over 10 million parents and students, 3000+ educators, school counsellors, school principals, and 300+ universities.
We live in a broken education system – one that hasn’t changed in over 100 years. For years, we’ve been told that the only way to get ahead is to excel at education, rather excel at grades, scores, and exams. There was a time when 80% was great, now it seems even 95% doesn’t get you anywhere.
To discuss this, we got together with a group of like-minded moms to create a better tomorrow for their children. Through innumerable coffees and lunches not only did we realise that hundreds of thousands of moms are in the same boat but also came up with an idea to create a platform to empower moms of high school students. This gave birth to High School Moms, a community of parents with the aim of promoting knowledge and welfare for moms of teenagers.
‘Equipping young minds with the skills of life while CAARVEing (Collaborate to Acquire Authentic, Real & Reliable information with a Vision to Excel) the distance between their dreams and reality; be instrumental in the relentless search in bringing together like-minded moms as the future architects of impressionable young minds. We believe they can do it; we believe they deserve it; we believe they will get it.’
THE SWAYAM BHU WAY
To come together as a community of like –minded mothers/parents, school leaders, educators, students & counsellors and partner with each other to build a life-long learning community, where each is encouraged to realize their highest potential and be the best they can be, in an environment diverse, connected and whole, that inspires everyone to learn collaboratively with and from each other and the world around, taking active, responsible and joyous ownership of their lives and legacies, facing challenges with imagination and integrity, and pursuing excellence with passion, purpose and persistence.
‘’Education is not a preparation for life; Education, is life itself’ It is the recognition of this imperative and the role of a ‘mom’ as the ‘eternal guru’ from time immemorial that human kind has witnessed, ‘mother’ being the utmost superlative, which has inspired the team of High School Mom’s to bring together a platform with the help of all the Mom’s to help students make a smooth transition on a successful future career path.
In a world that hurtles towards change at every known level, the educating of a child in its real sense becomes a sacred task. Research suggests that post-secondary planning is important for students to understand and discuss as it prepares them for life after they finish high school. A true, whole, or meaningful education cannot merely be limited to the often narrow and linear schooling process of acquiring knowledge and skills required to prepare one for life. While academic excellence is necessary, a complete education should include more than and beyond that. Surely, it should be a process in which the teacher, parent, counsellors and the taught, come together to explore not only the outer world, but also their own inner worlds, in which a growing awareness enables the gradual blurring of all hard divides between the four: to kindle a creative and comforting consonance. For it is only then that we may each learn to live with integrity and take active and responsible ownership of our choices and actions.
High School Moms believes in equal opportunities for all and comes together as a community to facilitate the decision making in the young adults today.
