‘Students and parents are made to feel like family at Apeejay’

Apeejay School Noida student Karman Singh’s mother Shimona recalls how the class teacher made her feel at home during their first-ever interaction



Shimona Singh’s child Karman Singh is studying in kindergarten at Apeejay School, Noida. He started his journey at school with offline classes in nursery last year. Despite being in the virtual mode, the teachers made him feel very comfortable which, in turn, prepared him for the ensuing offline classes. In an interview, the mother, who is a homemaker, shares her overall experience with the school. Edited excerpts:

Why did you choose Apeejay School, Noida, for Karman?

We went for formal interviews in various schools. Apeejay was the one we finally chose for our son as we had heard about its legacy and the good quality education it provides.

What was your first interaction with the faculty members like?

Our first interaction was the Shaila ma’am, followed by his class teacher Meenu ma’am. We were very satisfied with our interaction with the faculty. They were so welcoming that it did not seem like we were meeting for the first time. Apeejay has become like a family now.

This is the second year of your child studying in Apeejay. What do you think of the classes?

During the online classes, the students not only studied but also engaged in various activities like yoga, games, and so on. The teacher would interact with each student in the class before starting the session; the one-to-one interaction with the teacher helped students open up. Various co-curricular activities were conducted throughout the year. The students thoroughly enjoyed their time.

The relationship that was built between the students and their teacher last year ensured a smooth transition to the offline classes. Karman was keen to meet his friends and teachers in person. Prior to the summer break, he loved going to school and is now happy to be back to the campus again.

Is Karman enjoying the learning process?

The curriculum at Apeejay is very good. Karman is taking quite a lot of interest in learning. I do not have to push him to study; he does his assignments willingly. He is also curious to know more about things happening around him, which is a good development.

How have the teachers helped you?

The teachers answer each and every query. They help us whenever needed apart from giving us useful feedback. Karman’s class teacher keeps me updated with his developments as well as the areas where he needs to improve.
