Odisha’s SAI International School Ranked No. 1 Among India’s Day Schools In Survey
New Delhi: SAI International School, Bhubaneswar has been ranked India’s number 1 among Day Schools in the 14th annual EducationWorld India School Rankings (EWISR) 2020-21 survey.
The survey, conducted by EducationWorld in association with the Centre for Forecasting and Research Pvt. Ltd, (C fore) Delhi, interviewed respondent database of 11,368 SEC (socio-economic category) ‘A’ parents, educationists, principals, teachers and senior school students in 28 cities and education hubs across India to rate the country’s top 2,000 schools based on 14 parameters of education excellence, a press statement said.
Heritage Xperiential Learning School, Gurugram (Day co-ed), DPS, RK Puram, Delhi (Day-cum-boarding), Carmel Convent School, Chandigarh (all Girls) and St. John’s High School, Chandigarh (all Boys) were also ranked India’s #1 Day Schools in the EWISR survey.
“We believe the comprehensive EWISR league tables will enable parents to choose the most suitable day schools for their children and also provide institutional managements insights into ways and means to continuously raise teaching learning-standards for the greater good of the community and country,” Dilip Thakore, Founder-editor of EducationWorld said.
“The 14 wide-spectrum parameters on which all schools are assessed in EWISR surveys have set new benchmarks in the provision of holistic education, which is reflected in the new National Education Policy 2020. This year taking note of the huge education disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, a new parameter curriculum and pedagogy (digital readiness) has been introduced to rate and rank schools’ online teaching-learning practices. I am confident that the EWISR 2020-21 league tables are robust and uncompromising and indeed an improvement over past C fore-EW surveys,” Premchand Palety, Chief Executive of C fore noted.
