Parents love us

Initially we were worried that our son would not be sincere if he didn’t have a school bag. But it turned out that he is full of energy even when he comes back from school. He is also doing so many other activities like painting and stuff. During exams if we ask him anything from the sheets, he knows everything. So we don’t have to worry anymore! For overall development of the child, Walnut School is the right place!

Communication with the school is too good. I would rate full marks for communication because every alternate Saturday the meetings that are being held, we are free to come to the school, meeting the individual subject teacher. So if any of them has anything to say they can say personally convey us and vice versa. It thus becomes a 2 way discussion instead of just listening. Due to this children’s weaknesses can be targeted and strengths can be identified.

Being a doctor I have studied child psychology and I feel moving classrooms works well for the children. Subject wise classrooms help to keep the children’s brain active. Sitting in the same classroom for 5 hours becomes difficult for the kids. As an adult, we also get tired sitting in a particular place for straight one hour. Children really enjoy school because of the subject wise classrooms.

It almost feels like you guys are running a 6-Sigma kind of organization where everything is planned and there is room for improvement. Being bagless doesn’t mean the children keep bags in the schools. The syllabus has been converted into small packet sizes, which are easy to carry and easy to digest.

We both are impressed with the school. The best moment is that on my children’s face when they come back from school just carrying an empty folder and their lunch box. In their earlier school, the kids had really heavy bags it was too much for them at their age and again there was no way out of the problem. In Walnut school, the worksheets pattern are really working out great. Children find this method of learning very interesting too! The overall stress has really reduced. All these things make a big difference!
