Best schools in Gurgaon 2018

Before you read the complete list of Best schools in Gurgaon 2018, it is important that parents realize that there is no binary in school education system. A school can not be simply classified as good or bad just because a survey comes up with particular perception of the school. A lot depends upon the kid’s upbringing prior to schooling and a lot depends upon the kid himself/herself. At the same time, before searching for a school, clarity of thoughts is essential. Answers to these questions are a must have: Do you feel the child is smart and confident enough and only needs a right academic direction? Do you feel all that the child needs is to grow in confidence? Do you feel child needs to find a career in sports or other extra co-curricular opportunities? Do you feel you can put the extra hard work by taking your kid to coaching/training in sports/music etc. during non-school hours? or Do you feel the child needs to have a strong like minded company? If you have answers to all these questions, this Survey could help you since we divide a particular School’s rating based on individual parameters and then we come up with overall ratings based on a well researched weightage given to these parameters.

This year, along with SchoolBrainer, we researched around 50 schools in Gurgaon. Ratings for few of these schools are primarily based on lineage, prospective parent’s feedback, planned/current infrastructure and submitted survey form, if applicable.

This year, we have re-adjusted our calculation of overall ratings for the school. We have taken 20% of Academics, 20% of Safety/Security and 20% of Individual attention to child as key parameters for overall ratings. These parameters are given highest weightage based on an online Survey we had run 3 months back. Other than these parameters, 15% of Co-curricular, 10% of Extra-curricular and 5% each of ‘Parents-Teacher Interaction’, ‘Infrastructure’ and ‘Teacher Welfare’ have been considered. More details of each parameter will follow after the list of Best schools in Gurgaon 2018 which is given below: RankSchool NameAcademicsIndividual attention to childChild Safety/SecurityCo-curricular activitiesInfrastructureParents-Teacher InteractionTeacher WelfareExtra curricular activitiesTotal

    How is maitrikiran school in comparison to Vega

    • July 18, 2018 at 11:46 pm

      Maitrikiran has a good infra in comparison to Vega, the outdoor exposure is also more. However, faculty and individual attention wise, Vega stands out. I would prefer Vega between the 2 as it stands today.

    Shikshantar has been among top 3 highest scoring school in Gurgaon. There is undoubtedly a reason for that which is it’s deep rooted understanding of providing info to the child.

    I have heard that shikshantar has lot of new faculty now. has it caused issues?

    • July 15, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      Few parents do feel that there has been an overhaul at junior faculty level. However, senior faculty level is still mostly the same and so are the results.

      • July 15, 2018 at 2:37 pm

        Thanks for throwing light on the topic. So, its still worth the top choice, right? My key factors are individual attention and academics.

  • July 15, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    I am looking for admission for my child but my problem is that good schools start admission late so we need to try our luck and as a result, our money would get stuck in one of backup schools. could you advise what should be backup schools for us.

    • July 15, 2018 at 2:35 pm

      Suncity, Kuns, HDFC are few which could be on your backup list. however, lot depends on your own priorities and parameters you have flagged for yourselves.

    Your list has TSMs in top 10 even though it’s a new school. Any reason for that?

    • July 14, 2018 at 1:11 pm

      Yes, it would be it’s first session next year. Having witnessed the growth of TSMS in Noida and Faridabad, it’s a dark horse in Gurgaon. A good alternative for parents looking for admissions in big name schools.

  • July 14, 2018 at 12:35 am

    Thanks for the exhaustive list. please suggest about suncity school. is it better than Kuns DLF city?

    • July 14, 2018 at 1:53 am

      Well, the difference between the schools is both on teaching methodologies and acad outcome and fees. Fees of kuns is almost 1.5 times. The acads of Suncity is a tad superior. However, the parents satisfaction is high in Kuns due to its teaching methodology, comfort and approachability.

  • July 14, 2018 at 12:34 am

    I have Gems, Kuns and Vega in my back up list apart from the usual high profile schools. please advise if this is a good backup list.

    • July 14, 2018 at 1:56 am

      Yes, that’s a decent list but you may relook at Vega since that may not entirely fit in all parameters especially acads and extra curricular. You may also include TSMs and Suncity apart from usual top shortlisted schools.

  • July 14, 2018 at 12:33 am

    Please help advise how is Shalom hills. I have got some mixed reviews.

    • July 14, 2018 at 1:59 am

      It has good reviews from parents and a mixed feedback from parents sharing perception based feedback. The acads is good but one common negative feedback is lack of individual education especially in primary years.
