Amaravati: Developing the Education sector is a stated focus of the APCRDA and the Government of Andhra Pradesh. Significant strides have already been made in the higher education sector by attracting leading private universities to Amaravati. However, in order to cover the entire spectrum of education, there is a need to establish national and international schools in the capital city.
Amaravati is being developed with significant international cooperation and support with many international organizations contributing towards infrastructure and other development of Amaravati. Additionally, the large NRI population of Andhra Pradesh has also been actively involved with the Andhra growth story and there is a growing trend for this segment to expose their children to education in India.
Considering the rapid development of Amaravati, there will be demand for new age schooling facilities and infrastructure from the new population expected to move to Amaravati. Within the next 10 years, the population of Amaravati is expected to reach around 4 – 6 lakhs. Also, as the citizens look to send their children to foreign universities for under-graduate and post-graduate education, reputed national/international schools at Amaravati within the next 5 years could be an excellent stepping stone towards that goal.
As a result, world – class schools are being actively promoted to provide world-class education to the students and also as a tool to attract foreign investments to Andhra Pradesh. It is well known fact that availability of such schools is an important consideration for non-Indian staff of MNCs who come to India as well fill the gap of quality education required in the region.
As part of implementation of the plans, APCRDA is proposing to allot land for Development of National Schools in the Capital city. CRDA has invited bids for for setting up a total of 6 schools at 6 different locations within the Amaravati capital city. One International Boarding School (IBO/CIE), one International Day School (IBO/CIE), one National Boarding School (CBSE/CISCE/AP State) and three National Day Schools (CBSE/CISCE/AP State).
International Boarding school is proposed in 8 acres at Nelapadu Village, International Day School in 4 acres at Mandadam and National Boarding School in 4 acres at Nowlur. Three National Day Schools are located one each at Abbarajupalem, Nekkallu and Inavolu in 2 acres each.
