Hear what our parents have to say

  • Not only was I offered help and support in all my duties as a parent but I decided early on to do my part to contribute back to the school. The same school that helped my daughter Shivangi, make her mark as a buccaneer, to leave her footprints on the white desert of Antarctica as an ecological warrior in 2014. It is the fabric of this school that provided the platform for my second daughter, Vaishvi to top her ISC Board Examinations in 2019 and to come 2nd in the Middle East.

  • I am a proud parent of two Modernites, who has been associated with the school since 2004 when my daughter Aakanksha Rai joined the Modern family. While choosing a good school for her, my husband and I were looking for an institution that would not only impart quality education, but also look into the intellectual, emotional and social growth of our child. At Modern Academy, we have never been disappointed. Right from kindergarten, emphasis was given on an all-round development of the child’s personality with the right blend of classroom teaching as well as extracurricular activities.
