The K-12 education made its presence in India with the assessment of need of a continuum of education in early to adolescent years. This type of academic model had become customary in other countries and currently India is keenly advancing towards adopting K-12 educational framework in schools.
Tirupati, the spiritual capital of Andhra Pradesh has added a K-12 school to itspedagogical structure to systematize education in a more precise way. The school comes from the tradition of educational excellence that the Venkateswara Group of School has instituted in Tirupati.
Atlantis-The World School is a great example for bringing a reform in the learning ecosystem in Tirupati. Its main highlight is theexecution of Multiple Intelligence theory into the curriculum keeping in mind the enhancement of cognitive skills among children. There is also an addition of Artificial Intelligence and IT to get students drawn towards the world of digital education
The K-12 education would promote inclusive and interactive learning and prepare children into the tech savvy world. It’s high time for modern education to make an entry into these areas because the world is changing fast and we don’t want any child to lag behind in imbibing new skills and knowledge.
Mostly it is seen that if a country undergoes metamorphosis, it would be first visible in developed cities and gradually it enters into other places.Likewise, the K-12 education system has become necessary in these towns because they have to compete with other children of developed cities.
School Serv has laid foundation in a medium sized city like Tirupati to get hold of advanced learning using modern pedagogy.This would introduce students into new methods of learning and not get stuck in the rote method which restricts their overall development.
The K-12 schooling system is the most relied upon educational system in Indian context. There is a marginal presence of pre-university colleges too, but K-12 system is accepted for its comprehensiveness. The group has embraced the system as it stands for comprehensive and total education. All the boards including CBSE, CISCE, state board and international boards such as IGCSE, CIE etc. have accepted K-12 system.
With the coming of a newly formed education system, the drawback faced by people is unable to utilize it thoroughly. There needs to be a proper training for teachers to use the modern technology like smart boards or interactive boards etc inclassrooms. As the K-12 education is more technology oriented, prior tutoring of teachers is important to make them used to the technology. Due to the lack of awareness about k-12 setup, a surge in dropout rates were witnessed by many schools which is also a huge concern.
There should be a proper guideline about how to function K-12 education in Indian scenario. Teachers and students should be educated about the pros and cons of such a learning framework and talk about the benefits that they will attain for their better growth.
Atlantis imparts global education to get children of Tirupati into the ongoing learning trends. Theory of multiple intelligence is the main focus and it is affiliated to CBSE. Infrastructure is designed to suit the curriculum and pedagogy and there are scholastic and non-scholastic activities which not only gears up confidence at a budding stage but make them prepare to face the competitive world.
