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:

  1. Survey forms submitted by 5 Parents and 5 non-Parents for each school/Desk Survey

  3. Teacher Survey form submitted by teachers where received
  4. Ratings/Reviews for schools given at individual school links given at https://go4reviews.in/2017/01/best-schools-of-gurgaon-based-on-cbse-and-icse-board-results-2016/  ,  https://go4reviews.in/2018/07/best-icse-schools-gurgaon/ and https://go4reviews.in/category/blog/education/gurgaon-schools/

    Rankings make sense to me. How is paras school in comparison to alpine?

    I was shell shocked to learn that the school allows third parties to commercialise the sports infrastructure to unknown outsiders all year round before and after school hours. That means if any child pursues a sport and needs to train before or after school hours, they will be exposed to strangers. Strangely, this is the only school in Gurgaon that does it. Also the security risk as nobody checks the bags of these casual sports players which translates into a huge risk to send my son there for an education. Are schools actually permitted to do this? Checked with Shiv Nadar and Kunskapsskolan and they do not permit outsiders to use the school infrastructure. I am not considering this place any more for my son.

      If you are talking about pre-primary or primary, TSMS is good based on my experience so far this year. Amity is all academics and some select get exposure to extra curricular activities. TSMS is new and hence good focus on child is offered. If its senior class, go for Amity Intl since TSMS is still building up its senior staff.

      Depends on what you are looking at. If focus is academics, choose DPS 45. If you feel kid has matured enough to compete among classmates, choose DPS 45 else SunCity 37d.

      DPS Maruti Kunj is good. Considering the child is going to join class 1, individual attention will also be important. Hence, the advice. However this is only a personal view You are advised to take a well informed decision.

    At this point of the year, Suncity 37d, TSMS and Kuns are still taking admissions for primary and senior classes. I need to get my child admitted to class III. Please advise which of these is better. Please note i am not looking for traditional schools like DAV, DPS etc.

        Academics-Curriculum and teacher training – The senior staff (>class 3 onwards) of Shriram millennium school is quite experienced. Junior staff is also trained well before they start teaching. Academics in its previous venture in Noida and Faridabad has been good.
        Co-curricular- Enough exposure provided to children.
        Sports- Infrastructure is limited. Although students are trained in sports, the likelihood of a full size sport facility is not there.

      TSMS is going to be a good choice. The location is bit isolated though. Scottish high is established. If you want good sports facility, go for Scottish high. For short term also, Scottish high is good. If you are looking at long term gains and ok with ICSE as a board, TSMS can be considered equally.

      ts a comparison between an established group and a group undergoing consolidation. TSMS has done a wonderful job in Noida and Faridabad and Gurgaon is expected to be no different since former TSRS Delhi acamedician and TSMS Faridabad’s principal is leading it. It is expected to be one among the most sought after schools in 2-3 years from now. HDFC has a very able leadership in form of its principal who was previously with DAV. Expected to be more academics centric.
