Take for example, his friend Sahil that indirectly teaches him to share. We are glad we enrolled our child in a place that ensures his growth as a person”. We value this faith of the parents and it is our motivation to keep doing even better. Students like Kushal are the epitome of our model being successful. We wish to see him fulfil his dreams and also help the fellow students to achieve theirs.
