The Doon School retains number 2 position in schools

The survey conducted by Education World on India School Rankings has been more or less sweet and sour for the schools of Uttarakhand.

While amongst the boarding schools, The Doon School managed to retain its number two slot, the premium girls’ school, Welham Girls has gone down from number three last year to number four now.

Incidentally, The Doon School had been ranked number one in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and slipped to the second place only in 2011. As far as the Welham Girls School is concerned it was placed number five in 2008 and 2009.

However, it climbed up two notches and was placed third in 2010 and 2011, but has slipped down to the fourth place in 2012.

Another prominent school of the city, RIMC , which was established by the Britishers as Royal Indian military College and prepared its students for Sandhurst and was renamed Rashtriya Indian Military College after the country’s independence has also had an up and down journey in the rankings. It was number 13 in 2008 and 2009 but climbed up to the eighth place in 2010 and to the seventh place in 2011. But sadly it has slipped back to the 12th position in the latest rankings.

Likewise, the Welham Boys School of the city has also had an up and down roller coaster ride in the rankings. It was ranked number 18 in 2008 but went up to the 11th slot in 2009 and then to the 10th place in 2010 but fell down to the 12th ranking in 2011 and is now placed 16th in the rankings for this year.
