CM RISE School Vinoba, Ratlam, a state kindergarten through secondary school in Ratlam, India, which is a beacon of innovation in public education, originally founded for tribal girls in an urban slum community hesitant to embrace formal education, has been named in the Top 10 shortlist for the World’s Best School Prize for Innovation.

Kalvi International Public School, an independent school in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India, which transforms lives through education and sports, empowering students from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve excellence, has been named in the Top 10 shortlist for the World’s Best School Prize for Community Collaboration.

Waghji International (IGCSE), a state kindergarten and primary school in Mumbai, India, which has taken significant strides to foster healthy lifestyles among its students by cutting out junk food, has been named in the Top 10 shortlist for the World’s Best School Prize for Supporting Healthy Lives.

The five World’s Best School Prizes – for Community Collaboration, Environmental Action, Innovation, Overcoming Adversity, and Supporting Healthy Lives – were established in the wake of COVID in 2022 to give a platform to schools that are changing lives in their classrooms and far beyond their walls, sharing their best practices to help improve education everywhere.

The winners of the five Prizes will be chosen by an expert Judging Academy based on rigorous criteria. In addition, all 50 shortlisted schools across the five Prizes will also take part in a Public Vote, which opened today. The school which receives the most public votes will receive the Community Choice Award and membership to T4 Education’s Best School to Work programme to help them support teacher wellbeing and solve the teacher recruitment and retention crisis.
