SAI International School created history by becoming the Rank 1 School of India in Day-cum-Boarding School category, as per EducationWorld India School Rankings (EWISR), 2020. This makes SAI the only School to become a top rated school of India in the category in less than 12 years of establishment, making the achievement indeed historic.

SAI International School has elevated its position from being the No 3 School in India in 2019 to the No 1 School in India this year, along with DPS R.K.Puram, Delhi, leaving behind eminent schools like Greenwood High, Bangalore, The Emerald Heights International School, Indore, The Hyderabad Public School, Hyderabad, Modern School, Barakhamba Road, Delhi, Pallikoodam School, Kottayam, The Sanskaar Valley School, Bhopal, DPS, Vasant Kunj, Delhi, DPS, Noida, to win the top position.

The Schools were assessed through a robust and comprehensive survey by 118 Field personnel from Delhi-based research organization, Centre for Forecasting & Research (C fore) group, who interviewed 11,368 well-informed individuals countrywide. It comprised of socio-economic category ‘A’ parents, principals, teachers, educationists and senior school students, including 1,599 respondents from Eastern India. Well known primary-secondary schools were segregated into 14 categories like co-ed day, day-cum-boarding, all-boys day, all-girls day etc, to rule out apples to oranges type comparison.  The sample respondents rated and ranked every school they were aware of on 14 parameters of excellence that includes teacher welfare and development, academic reputation, teacher competence (given double weightage), leadership, infrastructure, life skills, co-curricular and sports education etc. The scores awarded by sample respondents under each parameter were totaled to rank schools in each sub-category.

This year following a dipstick survey of knowledgeable parents, new calibrated weightages were accorded to several parameters.  In this unprecedented time through a carefully curated National-level process SAI International School is ranked #1 in India, Odisha and Bhubaneswar in the day-cum boarding category with high scores under six parameters.

It is a historic moment and a great honour for SAI International School to accomplish this crown of glory. The ongoing pandemic did not subdue the celebration of the SAI International family. The merriment continued in each household, as appreciation mails and congratulatory phone call poured in. Founder and Mentor SAI International Dr. Bijaya Kumar Sahoo thanked the students, parents, faculty, State and Central Government as well as well-wishers for their support in every step of the journey towards success. He said “this colossal achievement of being the No. 1 School in India has not only placed Odisha in the forefront of K-12 education, but also reinforced the victory of in education”.
