  • Gurgaon Best Schools Ranking 2020

    School ranking among other factors such as distance, academic record, infrastructure, teacher quality have been influencing many parents when searching for best schools in Gurgaon for their child. Some of the players such as HT Top Schools Survey, Education World and Times School Survey have published rankings at different frequencies. The reliability of rankings in general gets constantly questioned since most follow a ‘perception-based’ element where sample respondents rate several ‘participating’ schools across different parameters even if they do not have ‘first-hand experience’ with the schools they rate. You can find more detailed analysis of the top Schools in Gurgaon Ranking 2020 in our blog section.

    When looking for a top school in Gurgaon, fellow parent reviews plays an important part. Whether it is collecting reviews from other moms in the neighborhood or exploring reviews online, most parents today like validation on their choices. A good review from an existing parent of a school can indeed provide much valuable insight to an admission seeking parents. We encourage our users to review Gurgaon schools that their children have attended in order to provide a window to prospective parent into what the school does well and what it can further improve on. Parents are advised to use the themes in reviews as areas to investigate further and exercise their best judgement on relying on any particular review as at the end of the day it is the subjective opinion of a particular user.

  • Best School in Gurgaon for your Child

    SchoolWiser since its inception has been preaching that parents should move away from the herd mentality to school selection of “Best School” or “Top School” based on some ranking. Instead, it is extremely important for parents to invest time to understand the needs of their child and their own circumstances, beliefs & value system so they are able to select the Right School in Gurgaon for ‘their’ child. The objective of analysing published Gurugram’s Top School rankings and exploring available Gurugram school reviews and ratings should be to get different perspectives in an attempt to understand schools a little bit better. Choosing the best Gurgaon school for your child should be based on your specific needs. Decide what "your" non-negotiable factor(s) are before shortlisting schools – affordability / distance / pedagogy / academic results / co-curricular laurels / location / infrastructure / reputation / student diversity / stability of establishment are some common ones. We typically recommend parents to look beyond fancy infrastructure, marketing talk or any rankings, but into the things that will actually matter like distance/safe location, academics/co-curricular engagement, quality of personnel / teachers and their interest in education, curriculum/delivery pedagogy and most importantly long term affordability (5-10 years view). Don’t go for the “best school” in Gurgaon, go for Gurgaon’s best school “for your child”!
