india's FIRST & ONLY Accredited 100% Online School For Nursery To Grade 8

FAQs

K8 School is India’s first and only accredited 100 per cent online school from Nursery to Grade 8.

An online school is a school offering virtual classes that students can take at their convenience from home or anywhere else. An online school has a technological infrastructure on which its learning platform operates. An online school is different from online classes/tuitions because an online school is a complete school in itself.

A student would need a laptop/tablet and good internet connectivity for studying in K8 School. However, we also recommend that a child attends classes from an assigned work desk every day to instil discipline from a young age.

K8 School for Nursery to Grade 8, powered by Discovery Education, is India’s first & only accredited online school, offering a world-class international curriculum through 3-5 hours of regular online classes 5-6 days a week in small class sizes of 15 students/class, thus providing dedicated attention to every child, in India’s most multicultural classrooms comprising students from all parts of India, where parents don’t have to sit in their child’s classes as the learning management system is powerful enough to inspire children to learn easily and independently. Emphasis is laid on developing multiple intelligences and skills in every child, using counselling, yoga, music, art, dance, story-telling, cultural exchanges, personality-development classes, moral studies and many other extracurricular activities for holistic development, providing them with enough avenues to learn without joining any extra tuitions outside of K8 School. In K8 School, children are therefore doing well in studies and getting enough free time to focus on their hobbies, career goals and other interests, and hence the motto ‘Happy Students, Happy Parents’ is well-served.

No parent would want to choose a school that is not recognised. Accreditation is a higher degree of recognition. It is a hallmark of educational excellence and not only ensures that the school is recognised but also that it is operating at a high level of educational excellence and is on a path of continuous improvement.
