‘Apeejay Nerul teachers ensure education is imparted seamlessly even during tough times’

Rajneesh Vats, whose daughter is a class 1 student of Apeejay School, Nerul, shares how the school maintains a balance between conventional methods of learning and teaching modern-day skills.



Rajneesh Vats, father of Alayna Vats, class 1, Apeejay School, Nerul, says he did not have to think twice before getting his daughter admitted to the school. In an interview, Vats, Domain Consultant-Regulatory Affairs, Tata Consultancy Services, shares why. Edited excerpts:

Why did you choose Apeejay School, Nerul, for your daughter?

My elder son Aayaan Vats is already studying in Apeejay School, Nerul, in class 9. So, I have observed and experienced Apeejay very closely. Earlier, I had an indirect experience through my niece who studied at Apeejay School, Noida, and I got very positive feedback. I did not really take much time to decide which school to enroll my children in.

Considering your long association with the school, what have your major observations been?

First and foremost, the academic staff is not just experienced but also hard-working: the amount of effort and time they invest in their students is really commendable. Coming to pedagogy, they have been able to strike a fine balance between the conventional methods of learning and an application-based approach. Additionally, inculcating traditional values and upbringing, juxtaposed with modern skills, is the forte of Apeejay School.

How has the learning process at Apeejay School impacted your children?

Both my children have picked up good presentation skills that are being nurtured further. What they have also picked up from their teachers are grit and tenacity. This is something that I have observed first-hand.

Has the teaching-learning process for your daughter changed from what it used to be during your son’s early classes?

I do not think there has been any major difference in the learning process between my daughter and son. At least, we never felt it. Apeejay has weaved in the nuances and policy changes very naturally into their curriculum and methodologies of teaching. The transition has been seamless.

How would you compare the online vs offline classes?

In line with the pandemic learnings, Apeejay School has adapted itself very well to the virtual mode of teaching: from realising the opportunities early on and tapping them. Their online classes are as good as offline. The teachers and the staff have taken every measure to ensure that education is imparted seamlessly to the children even during these difficult times. This is something I can vouch for, in the case of both my children.
