We encourage you to compare our site traffic with other school directories through Google, Bing or Alexa, and also compare the referrals (CTR) from our site with our competitors to find out who is truly value for your investment.

There are many parents who are so serious about school results and our rankings / ratings that they make decisions almost solely based on our rankings / ratings in choosing a school for their children. So we have to put a disclaimer on every school results page through our website. Parents and students spend more time and visit more pages per session / page on our site than other school directory sites. And our return visitor ratio is more than 40%. These parents are choosing schools for their children. We can help bring them to your school. We guarantee more CTR rate to your school’s website and more enrolment enquiries than any of our competitors.

There are so many benefits, but the cost is minimal.

Premium School Accounts / Subscriptions are also available with a premium WYSIWYG rich text / HTML editor so that you can customise your school's content page such as embedding images / videos / YouTube / HTML5 / slideshow, school logos, location maps, school zones, social media links and more, see example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4.
