Questions about using our site

How do I find a school rating on your site?
Our search engine will help you identify a school by name or keyword by simply using the search feature found in the box located at the top of every page. You can then refine your search by using the ‘Filter Your Search Results’ function located on the left-hand side of the search results. The tool enables you to filter by location, rating and other parameters.
Additionally, you may wish to try our advanced search feature or explore an alphabetical list of the thousands of schools we have evaluated.
Which schools do you evaluate?
We cover kindergarten, primary, elementary and high schools. We have recently launched our India operations to extend WEF’s rating platform to Indian schools.
How can I compare school ratings?
First, you must be a Registered User to access the school ratings comparison feature. Once logged in, you have several ways to compare schools. You can compare schools within any listing of search results by simply clicking on the schools that you wish to compare and then clicking the ‘Compare Schools’ button at the top of the search results.

How can I review prior ratings?
To review a school’s prior ratings, you will first need to become a registered user. Then simply click on the ‘Historical Data’ tab located towards the top of the school’s ratings page next to the ‘Current Rating’ tab.
How can I share a list of ratings with others?
We offer an easy way to share your research with others. First, you must be a ‘Registered User’ to access the ‘My Schools’ and ‘Share my Schools’ features. Once logged in, you can begin to create personalized lists of schools by clicking on ‘Add to My Schools’ on any school’s ratings page. Finally, to share one of your groups with your friends and family, go to the ‘My Schools’ section and click on the ‘Share This List’ link. A new window will pop up asking you to enter the recipients’ email addresses along with a personalized message.
I requested that WEF rate a particular school. When will it be on your site?
Thank you for your suggestion. As soon as we receive a recommendation, we contact the school offering to rate them. As soon as a school accepts our offer, submits to the detailed process we have for rating and a rating is granted, the name of that school will be added to the list
What does it mean when the school I’m looking for isn’t listed on your site?
It means that the school you are looking for has not been granted a rating by WEF – either the school has not become a part of the process or has not completed the process yet. If you know that a school has not become a part of the WEF process, please recommend their name to us and we will get in touch with them. Click here to recommend a school
