Best schools in Pune

Pune has been regarded as the region of traditional schools. But in recent times, International and World/Global schools have made their entry to explore the potential of unconventional teaching methods. Pune also has a very good mix of schools from State, CBSE and ICSE curriculum thereby providing enough options to prospective parents to discover the school of their academic interests.
We did a Survey of Pune schools and came up with the list of Best schools in Pune. The schools are ranked based on the combined basis of key parameters like Academics, Individual attention to child, Infrastructure, Parents-Teacher interaction and general safety standards for the child (scroll right in the table below to see the hidden parameters if any).

The rankings are based on a mix of desk, perceptual (social analytics) and on site survey (partial).

Points criteria is as below:
Academics: 55 points based on CBSE results (average scores of students appeared in 2016 board) if applicable or else 20 points for minimum qualification mandate + 15 points for NET/post graduate mandate + 20 points for social insights data from online sources + average score given by parents out of 45. It is this 20 + 45 from social insights data and parent review that is variable for schools.
Individual attention to child: 50 points to teacher student ratio. Rest 50 points based on average of responses from parents.
Infrastructure: Sports amenities (4 points each for swimming pool, cricket, soccer, lawn tennis, table tennis, gym, racing, basketball, hockey, boxing, volleyball, skating) and 2 points for unique outdoor sport like horse riding or shooting/archery, 20 and 10 points for IT and Lab Infrastructure respectively and remaining 20 from average parent score
Parents involvement: 50 points for PTM frequency and 50 points from average score from Parents survey
Safety: 20 points given for restricted entry and exit, 10 points deducted if small class children on upper floors, 20 points deducted for porous nature of plot. Rest points given based on Average score from Parents survey.
There is always some scope for improvement from point system’s perspective. But, we have given equal consideration to key parameters identified by parents during our last years survey.

    It depends upon what you are looking for in a school. A more traditional approach is adopted by CBSE still while ICSE has adopted itself well to new age teaching methodologies. ICSE on the other hand broader syllabus and is a little more load on the student as he/she progresses.

    Thanks for the list. Splendid job. Could you suggest which board to go for – CBSE or ICSE

    This is one of the most exhaustive list I found. However, feel Anne’s is a tad better.
