The 21K School – a growing international community of learners

Quality online schools offering the American and Indian curriculum, as well as the UK curriculum, are also flourishing and catering to the needs of a wide range of relocating families. Among them is the award-winning 21K School, India’s first online-only school. It provides quality teacher-led education to students from a thriving community that currently represents more than 54 countries and more than 40 nationalities.Since its inception in 2020, 21K has grown into a community of over 6,000 students who can choose to take the Indian, American or British curriculum wherever they are in the world. A key component of the 21K School’s unprecedented success is that it helps make successful domestic and international relocation a reality for more families. This includes those with globally in-demand IT skills on back-to-back assignments.“I lived in Dubai for eight years and saw the cost of raising children there,” says Santosh Kumar, co-founder and CEO of 21K. “A lot of Indians working in Dubai don’t even bring their families. Encounter with Yeshwanth [Raj Parasmal – Co-Founder and COO], we have created a solution to this; as well as for parents who want quality education and seamless education in tier three or four cities; for others where the school travels with their children; and for those who need more time for other activities outside of school.
