3. 21K School

21K School is India’s first online only school. They offer transparent quality education, regardless of the situation and location. Our teachers and students come from around the world – connect with our counsellor to see if they are right for your child.

Being online only was a conscious decision taken by the management of 21K School after significant research, discussions, and surveys among stakeholders, including teachers, staff, students, and parents. Several reasons create unnecessary hurdles for parents and children to avail quality education. While cities attract the best teachers, people living in other areas have to do with sub-par faculty. Not only can this but several other reasons from commute to health challenges come in the way. Hence, 21K School wanted to be location agnostic and get world class education to your world wherever that might be.

Being online only they are not for everyone. If you are happy with the traditional school system and have access to quality education at an affordable price then they might not be right for you.

But if you fall in any of the following categories, they encourage you to talk our counsellor and attend a class to open up your mind to a world of possibilities for your child.
