It was in March’91 that the International Educational Academy had its beginning. The School under its aegis started functioning from 14th June ’91.Housed in an idyllic 3acre campus in salubrious surroundings, the school began with 150 students and 6 teachers. By the academic year 1992 there was a tremendous demand for seats in the school and that year the strength shot up to 450, and more teachers were taken in. In the meanwhile the present school building got underway and in 1993 it was formally declared open by Dr.C.Narayan Reddy.
The committed humanitarians, Prof. Kakarla Subba Rao and Mrs.Lakshmi Kakarla, the moving sprits behind the academy spared nothing to see that the infrastructure would be of the highest order. They were keen that the children passing out of this institution should be really international in their outlook. In the very first interview with the people when Dr.Subba Rao was asked why he began a school and not a hospital, he told everyone present that educating a child is the best investment for any growing country. He wanted children not only to do well in academics but also excel in co-curricular and extra curricular activities. So from its very inception, the school has been offering various co-curricular activities like dance, art, music, gymnastics, aerobics, keyboard, chess, cricket, karate, brass band, yoga etc. From class II all the children are exposed to computer education as that is where the future lies. Today the school has grown and has 2250 students and 104 teachers. The school is affiliated to the ICSE and sent out its first batch of ICSC students in March 1996. All the students sent up passed with a first class. Since then the School has maintained a consistently excellent academic record.
The students of the school are encouraged to participate in various Inter-School competitions. Several prizes have been won by them. One of our students won the prestigious Science Talent Scholarship awarded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India which enabled him to free education till his post graduation. All the students who have passed out from the school are doing very well in their chosen academic fields. International School can be proud that many Engineers, Doctors and MBA’s have been shaped by a band of dedicated teachers. The school is sure to carve a niche for itself in the world of Indian education.
“Men may come and men may go,
International school will go on for ever and ever……..”
