My daughter joined grade 1 at MLZS Vidyaranyapura this year. As a parent one tends to have various expectations out of a school and mine were quite high indeed.
After two months, I have no doubt that I made the right choice. At the primary school level, it is very important how the teachers interact with the kids. Any mistakes made at this point would have long term repercussions on the child. I was glad to see that the overall environment was one in which a child would feel at ease. This would in turn automatically create a desire to learn.
Various activities keep the kids engaged and alert through the day. The system of continuous evaluation seems to be a good concept and reduces pressure on the child. So far, everyone I have interacted with at the school has been very helpful and the rigid atmosphere that one tends to associate with a school is, fortunately, absent.
