A long time back, a chain of 130 public schools was established across the country by the Army Welfare Education Society (AWES). These schools are called the Army Public Schools or the APS. Their aim is to impart education to the children of the personnel of the Indian Armed Forces, i.e., the Indian Army, the Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force.
The Army Public Schools are also open for admission to the children of civilians but they give preference to the children of the Defense personnel. All the APS are affiliated to the CBSE and are managed by the regional commands of the army. Each of them has a senior Army Officer of the rank of Brigadier as its Chairman and one of the ranks of Major General as its Patron.
Noida is a part of the National Capital Region (NCR) and a fast-developing industrial area which is a hub of corporate houses. This means that a lot of young working people are the residents of the city which consequently implies that the city has a large population of young children. Due to this, a lot of schools are coming up in this region. The schools here provide good-quality education.
Like all other regions of India, Noidatoo has Army Public Schools which aim to provide high-class education to the children of the Armed Forces personnel that reside and/or work in the region.
