EQFI Indian School Rating 2017

Dear Ma’am / Sir,

Greetings of the day!

For the first time in India, a massive and comprehensive survey of schools is being conducted by Etyma Consulting under the aegis of the Education Quality Foundation of India (EQFI) in order to arrive at the ratings for the Schools in India.

The ratings of the schools will be published in all the leading National dailies and regional vernacular newspapers. Also, there will be an award function in which the leading schools will be awarded in their respective categories. At the end of the survey, EQFI will also publish a directory of schools in India which will benefit not only the schools but also the parents who are keen on getting admissions for their ward in your school. Our endeavor through this survey is to arrive at those critical insights that would enable parents to choose the right school for their wards.

Care has been taken to include all the schools for this survey. For this very reason, we are reaching out to you to get your feedback on a few parameters that some of the parents have handpicked to be absolute must-haves in a school.

We are very conscious of your busy schedule and have designed the questions to be easily answerable in less than 10 minutes. We urge you to answer all the questions because your ratings will get affected with no/incorrect response(s). We do request you to participate by answering all the questions. In case we do not receive the responses we would be collecting information from the public domain which we conclude would have the correct requisite information.

To express our gratitude for your participation in the survey, we will be sharing the top-line findings from the survey with you even before the report is released at a National level.

In case you are facing any difficulty in filling the survey and need our help please drop us a mail at info@etymaconsulting.com
