Shweta Mishra’s daughters Ira Mishra and Srija Mishra are studying in classes 5 and KG respectively in Apeejay International School, Greater Noida. A homemaker, Shweta says she is very satisfied with the way school teachers take a personal interest in every student’s progress. In an interview, she talks about how the school is fostering her children’s overall development. Edited excerpts:

Why did you opt for Apeejay International School, Greater Noida?

My husband Gaurav Mishra is an alumnus of Apeejay Institute of Technology, Greater Noida. So, he was keen to enroll our children in the school. Second, I had heard positive feedback from some of my friends about Apeejay; I got to know that the faculty was very good. What encouraged us further was our reassuring interaction with the former school principal.

I remember the first time I visited the school–I found the students performing Ramlila. This showed that the school kept children rooted in their tradition and culture while inculcating modern skills and that is what I really liked.

Ira has been in the school since kindergarten. What is it that makes you feel positive about the school?

The experience has been very good. Even in the online classes, the teachers worked very hard to conduct interactive classes to keep children engaged. They make sure to pay attention to every student and give timely feedback to parents in case any issue needs to be addressed. At the same time, they motivate children all the time. Ira, for instance, participates in various class activities as well as co-curricular activities.

Would you say Ira has had an all-round development?

Absolutely! She is performing very well not only in academics but also in other activities. I see a lot of enthusiasm in her. She has overcome stage fear and is quite confident now.

What about Srija?

Srija has just started her journey at Apeejay in this academic session. Having said that, she settled in quite quickly. She now feels very comfortable around her friends and teachers and interacts with them freely.

Apeejay is known to blend traditional and modern methods of learning. What is your opinion about their curriculum?

My daughters enjoy their classes and do not feel any burden. The syllabus is age-appropriate. What is even more significant is that their teachers explain every topic lucidly with audio-visual aid and other methods which makes it easier for students to understand.
