Gone are the days when schools were few and far. Nowadays, schools are scattered like chromosomes in a living cell. While quantity has increased, same can’t be said about quality. That’s the reason why it is paramount to choose a perfect school for your children to hone their skills. Here we are giving the Top Schools in Tamil Nadu in no particular order. The ranking is based on various factors like academics, cultural presence, and sports.We hope this article helps you in making the right choice.

Jawahar higher secondary school

Located in Neyveli (Cuddalore district),the power town of Tamil Nadu, this school makes the news every year for its outstanding achievements in academics.While being quite a rage in its home district,it lacks a solid marketing campaign to attract people from elsewhere.But,that’s the administration problem right?
