‘Studying in Apeejay Model Town has been our family tradition’

Apeejay has always been way ahead of its time, says Mudit Jain’s father Abhishek, a businessman



Apeejay School, Model Town, was the only school that Abhishek Jain applied to get his son Mudit Jain enrolled, he reveals in an interview. Now in class 2, Mudit has shown a lot of positive change since he joined school—he has become a confident boy now. Edited excerpts:

What made you choose Apeejay Model Town for Mudit?

Mudit is a third-generation Apeejayite in the family—my father and I are also Apeejay alumni. It has been a family tradition (laughs). We have immense love for the school. I was absolutely certain that my child would be studying in Apeejay Model Town.

As an alumnus, did you notice any significant changes during the admission process?

Apeejay was always ahead of its time. Since I knew most of the staff members, going back to my alma mater for my child’s admission was pretty nostalgic. I felt very comfortable and so did my son. Of course, there were considerable changes as far as infrastructure is concerned but otherwise, it was a familiar environment.

Does Mudit feel comfortable at school?

Mudit enjoys going to school. He has been in the school for the past five years.

What has the experience been like till now?

It has been very nice. We have a good relationship with the teachers, who take great care of the students. Every minute detail is taken care of. Parents too have very easy access to teachers.

Does the school encourage participation in co-curricular activities?

Apeejay is among the few schools that focus as much on co-curricular activities as academics. It also promotes activity-based learning which is a very progressive way of teaching kids. It has made the learning process fun and easy for my son.

Have you noticed any positive change in Mudit?

Mudit used to be a very shy child but with the teachers’ support, he has become a lot more confident now. The teachers have been encouraging him right from the beginning. I remember how he ran towards his teacher during our first-ever parent-teacher meeting at school—that is the connection they have.
