List of best schools in Gurgaon

Dear Parents, after an extensive research of schools, we list down some of the best schools in Gurgaon at the moment. We considered around 55 schools for the Survey and arrived at the list of 40 best schools in Gurgaon / Gurugram. This includes both the best CSBE schools in Gurgaon and the best ICSE schools in Gurgaon. This year, Heritage school faced tough competition from Shriram Aravali after 2019 board results were taken into consideration. The two schools are neck to neck at the top in our latest Survey. As you would find below, the list is arrived to on the combined basis of key parameters like Academics, Individual attention to child, Infrastructure, Parents-Teacher interaction and general safety standards for the child. Parents looking for a particular characteristic in school can sort this list by the same. Parent reviews, interaction with some of the schools, social insights from online portals and board results are some of the key inputs to this list (Fees for different schools can be seen at:

The basis for arriving at overall ratings for the school is as follows: We have taken 20% of Academics, 20% of Safety/Security and 20% of Individual attention to child as key parameters for overall ratings.  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.

Update(Jan-2020) List has been updated to show the rankings from latest 2019-2020 survey of Gurgaon / Gurugram schools. The 2018 rankings have also been mentioned alongside each school.

    This article definitely helps Gurgaon parents. Rather than these schools I recommend Blue Bells School Sector 50 . It seemed that the overt academic excellence was matched by the more precise, but also more important, authentic intellectual dimension. The teachers are very supportive and we love the diversity of both the students and the staff.

  • September 1, 2021 at 1:11 pm

    well compiled list! .. However one name is missing is Shemford (sec 47) . We are a working couple and were confused last year.. someone told us about Shemford.. we loved the concept and kiddo loves the school as well

    Dear Admin- You can find out more about them from their website

    How is heritage in comparison to shikshantar, kuns dlf and scottish high. i have drilled down to these options and need your help in deciding,

  • December 1, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    I am confused between dps 45 and shiv nadar. dps 45 is easier on budget and good on academics while shiv nadar has great reviews from parents mostly…

    • January 9, 2021 at 7:31 pm

      if you are ok with not so bothering teachers once child reaches class 6th, dps is for you. else go for shiv nadar without second thought.

  • December 1, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    Heritage is a different league. The support parents get from the school is immense. It is on this very approachability part, that heritage excels over Shriram. Rest is similar. And if one really likes going slow with academics, shikshantar can really surprise you.

    • June 28, 2020 at 5:20 pm

      Almost all schools now. Parents are not happy. More fees they are giving, more unhappy they are.

  • March 12, 2020 at 7:51 pm

  • March 12, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    This list is quite exhaustive. I visited TSMS last week and really liked the improvement and infra growth in the school. Outside road is still in infancy but school has gone upwards.

  • March 3, 2020 at 2:26 am

    How is chalk tree and paras world school please.

    • March 3, 2020 at 2:25 am

  • February 4, 2020 at 3:08 am

    Good list. Lancers could score better though.

  • January 22, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    • February 4, 2020 at 3:09 am

      If you don’t worry about academics, go for it.

  • January 21, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    As per the ranking, HDFC School has made good jump. My son is studying there and i see it as a viable option for parents

    • January 21, 2020 at 4:04 pm

      And St Xaviers has gone down the ranking…

  • January 21, 2020 at 12:45 pm

  • January 21, 2020 at 12:44 pm
