“Which is the best CBSE school in Madhapur?”
Google is the answer for everything today, helping us choose everything from a restaurant to an apparel store and the next movie to watch. For entertainment, shopping, traveling, and sight-seeing, we all heavily rely on the World Wide Web. It has spoiled us for choice and has made the decision-making process extremely easy. The fact that a majority of the population has access to the Internet has coaxed the formation of multiple startups that cater to specific needs, thereby making our lives easy.
However, one tremendously crucial aspect has been left untouched over the year – finding a good school. To this day in 2019, where all answers are seconds away, parents go through the traditional process of making calls and visiting schools. The Internet may be able to give a superficial idea about schools in a particular locality but exploring infrastructure, curriculum, facilities, and educational methods within a few seconds is nigh impossible even today. In fact, besides the name and location, there is no other information about many schools in Hyderabad. Due to this, the schools and parents miss out equally.
This is, in fact, surprising because school search is a huge concern for every parent. It is a decision that affects children in a significant way. No parent wants to take this lightly but would be delighted to find an alternative route that’s relatively easy!
