Today, the most striking facet of KBDAV-7, Chandigarh is that it is a reflection of her untiring efforts, showcasing the diversity of minds, thoughts, creativity and skills of the children of the school. The school lays special emphasis on both academic and co-scholastic areas providing the students an edge over others.
