Can you share your overall experience with Apeejay School Noida so far?

Our experience at Apeejay School, Noida has been nothing short of remarkable. The dedication and care exhibited by the teachers as well as support staff have played a pivotal role in fostering a positive and conducive learning environment. Witnessing the evident growth and development of our child has truly been a source of joy for us.

How would you describe your child’s journey at the school up to this point?

Ridaan’s journey has been sweet and promising. The noticeable growth in his personality and development has exceeded our expectations. It’s been a phenomenal experience witnessing the positive impact of the school on his formative years.

What aspects of the school’s environment do you think have positively influenced your child’s development?

One aspect that pleasantly surprised me is Apeejay’s practical approach to education. The use of tools like language kits and abacus kits in teaching has made learning more engaging and effective for the kids. This hands-on approach has undoubtedly contributed to Ridaan’s enhanced learning experience.

Could you tell us about the teaching methods and pedagogies you’ve observed at the school?

The school’s emphasis on hands-on approach to teaching has proven to be highly effective. The weekly curriculum is a valuable tool that helps us keep track of Ridaan’s daily schedule, making it easier for us to assist him in his studies.

Are there any particular teaching approaches or techniques that you believe have been beneficial for your child’s learning?

According to the way things are set up, each PTM cycle has at least one competition. The first was a Hindi poem, followed by an English poem, a Hindi story, and so on. Ridaan was selected for storytelling in PTM in front of everyone after performing well in class, but he absolutely lost it because of stage fear, which surprised me because I always thought Ridaan to be an extrovert. However, around 30 to 40 minutes later, after we had given him some time and space, he calmed down, and recited the poem. He certainly did well in both the Onam prayers and the class dance. Ridaan’s stage fear was reduced due to this strategy. This represents a huge accomplishment for such a little kid.

How does the school encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills in students?

The school incorporates activities like playing with clay, creating models, and using crayons for drawing. These creative outlets provide small kids like Ridaan with the opportunity to express themselves, fostering critical thinking and problem-solving skills from an early age.

Do you think the school effectively balances academic and extracurricular pursuits?

Apeejay Noida excels in maintaining a balance between academics and extracurricular activities. The clear priorities set by the school ensure that both aspects are given due importance, contributing to the well-rounded development of the students.

How does the school create a positive and safe learning environment for your child?

The entire staff, starting with Ridaan’s class teacher, Abhilasha Ma’am, does an exemplary job of creating a safe and positive learning environment. This fosters trust and positive relationships between students and teachers, significantly impacting Ridaan’s overall growth.

How does the school prepare students for their future endeavors, both academically and in terms of life skills?

Apeejay is dedicated to nurturing well-rounded individuals. The focus on both academic and life skills equips students to face challenges, collaborate with others, and adapt to various situations. Ridaan’s substantial growth in various aspects assures us that he is well-prepared for his future endeavours.
