To rate and rank the best Government schools, parents in SEC ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ categories were also interviewed. The sample respondents were persuaded to rate India’s most well-known 3,000 primary-secondary schools on 14 parameters* of education excellence.


“Although EWISR is primarily a perceptions-based survey, we have been publishing hard data including class XII school-leaving exam average scores of institutions willing to provide them. Moreover this year, the scores awarded under the important parameter of ‘teacher competence’ include teachers’ scores in a special online test administered by CENTA (Centre for Teacher Accreditation), a teacher development and certification company. These annual surveys are pragmatic and their great merit is that we have ideated over a dozen benchmarks for holistic school education, and generated huge nationwide awareness of the vital importance of well-rounded, balanced education,” says PremchandPalety, Chief Executive of C fore, explaining the ratings and ranking methodology of EWISR 2021-20.

In addition to private schools, India’s #1 Government Day, Boarding schools as well as Special Needs Schools are :

· Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV), Bagalur, Bengaluru Urban is the #1 Government Boarding School.

· Academy for Severe Handicaps and Autism (ASHA), Bengaluru is the top-ranked Special Needs School.



“In the year of the Covid pandemic during which all schools countrywide were under government-imposed lockdown for over 60 weeks, two new parameters — ‘online education effectiveness’ and ‘mental and emotional well-being services’ — have been added. In no country worldwide has such an extensive and comprehensive primary-secondary schools rankings survey has been undertaken, that provides insights into ways and means to continuously raise teaching-learning standards for the greater good of the community and country. We are proud to present the world’s largest and most sophisticated school rankings survey,” says DilipThakore, Founder-editor of EducationWorld.
