Prime academy was a fairly good school till 2-3 yrs back, but unfortunately their standards are rapidly falling. Every 2yrs the school sees a mass exodus of teachers and the management is forced to fill in the vacancies with who-so-ever is willing to work for a fairly low salary (heresay some ex-teachers). You can well imagine the quality in such a case.
The school claims that they dont take donations..that is true, they do not take 'donation', but they charge a lot of money under transport, catering, activities, tution which is a recurring cost and ends up being far more expensive over the years.
In terms of extracurricular activities/sports, the school promises a lot, charges a bomb, tries hard to deliver and manage only for namesake. But even over years there hardly an improvement. I think they are getting comfortable with low achievement of goals!
Transport department is having 'teething troubles' even after being operational for over 6 years. I wonder when they are actually going to 'teeth' and be a painfree service. For the distance travelled, their rates are again very steep. But the contractor has unstinted support from the management and hence you will be pretty helpless in that department.
Catering was pretty good till last year. This year they have changed the contractor and the kids are complaining that the food portions are insufficient, till July various kids complained of not being served either breakfast/lunch. Since meals in school are compulsary, kids do not take food from home. School timings are 8am-3pm and kids leave home between 7.15-7.40 and get back home between 3.30-4pm. Under this situation, not providing sufficient food borders on cruelty.
Quality of teachers are hinted earlier is not great, certain special subjects need teachers who are well qualified. Eg Marathi teachers cannot pronounce Marathi properly. Some teachers are extremely helpful and take your feedback openly, discuss with the management and get back to you on your problems. Others just throw it on your face and make excuses for every lapse...this was not the case few years ago. Even if you leave your opinions aside for a moment, quality of teaching is still below expectations.
All in all, an expensive school but do not expect too much. Quality of teachers is still good in pre-primary, average in primary and not so great in secondary.
Infrastructure is excellent, chairman is a visionary, but somewhere in the middle order of the management, all is lost.
As on date Prime Academy in Marol is the best school in the area. It has come up very slowly and steadily. Today I can proudly say that my child studies in Prime Academy. This school is totally different from other schools. The care they take of students is fine but the parents are also very well taken care of. Which we do not find in any other school. Their easy accessibility etc. May they reach greater height year after year. All said and done, I am happy, my husband is happy and my child is happy.
