Being father of two it was a big challenge for me to pick up the school where I can send my children. It is not an easy task to select a school for one’s children these days. There are lot of issues that you need to keep in mind while selecting a school. Is the school good in academics? Does it have a comprehensive system and infrastructure for inculcating interest in extra-curricular activities? Will it take care of the overall development of the child? You also need to take account of whether the school is adopting new techniques of education or is believes in following the traditional systems?
The point I am trying to make is that today most Indian parents have to go through lot of stress in finding a school for their children. One major issue is that the good schools have a very limited number of seats, so even if a parent is able to find a school that is most suitable, it is not necessary that he will be able to get his children placed there.
School education in India has been drastically transformed during the last few decades. Today parents expect the schools to take care of not only the academic performance of their children, but also their overall development. With the entry of new private schools providing plethora of services to students and multiple curriculums, choosing right school has become really complex and brain storming tasks.
This is one issue of digitalLEARNING that I think most parents would appreciate. This issue is all about rating the schools on basis of the most important factors. As you turn the pages, you will find the ranking of some of the key schools located in the country. Mainly we have tried to select and rate the top schools located in six zones – North India, Central India, West India, South India, East India and North-East India.
India is witnessing a big leap in school education sector, which is fuelling the demand for strong leadership abilities among school leaders to take this growth forward. Taking this aim forward, we are organising school leadership summit 2014 on 31st January 2014 at New Delhi. We will be delighted to felicitate schools featured in this issue at the event for their excellence in performance in school education.
We look forward to see you at the event!
