India is a home of 10,000 best schools which imparts quality education to students. A good brand attracts students from every part of the country. Therefore, school selection is a serious affair and needs to be done with due diligence following a proper research by parents. It’s a common knowledge to admit children into schools; most of the parents go by neighbours or close relatives’ advice. Though a good piece of advice should be welcomed always, there are certain parameters to assess schools.
Not just that, the everyday growing global competition does not limit the purpose of education only to get a job but also caters to develop a generation of vibrant minds and global leaders.
