A new international school is opening in Kolkata – the Akademia International School. While strictly not a hangout, you should still explore this because every new school coming up in Kolkata will help to reduce the huge tension that the parents go through when looking for a good school to get their kids into.
The promoters claim to be setting up the school with a rigorous academic curriculum, well-defined co-curricular programme, experienced faculty members, and state-of-the-art infrastructure. The education a child receives at Akademia will be truly international with support for several different boards and education systems.
The School will commence its first academic session in March 2011. Located only 15 kms away from the National Library in Alipore, it is a day boarding school with widespread Academic, Athletic, Activity and Anciliary zones. The admissions open in October 2010.
