The first school was established nearly two decades ago in Nellore - referred to as the rice bowl of Andhra Pradesh. The response was so overwhelming that the group expanded rapidly to other major locations in the country. Today, Ravindra Bharathi is one of the largest groups of institutions in south India spread across three states with over 70,000 students. The group offers education following CBSE and State syllabi. Such stupendous response has sowed the seeds of futuristic and global education in Mr. Mani’s mind, encouraging him to set Ithaka International School in Nellore offering the internationally accepted and approved CBSE and Cambridge Programmes. Set to re define the paradigm of mainstream education in the region, Ithaka is spread over 7.5 acres of land. The day boarding school has been designed with minimum changes to natural topography. The unique layout has been designed with step-wise gradients to keep the natural incline intact. The entire campus has a perimeter of green hedges that double up as fencing as well as lovely verdure. Vast playgrounds and open-air amphitheatre are located on one flank. The building blocks are divided into four major wings - The Primary Years Wing, The Middle Years Wing, The Senior Years Wing and the Administration Wing. The construction of the concrete structusres has been designed in a way that is eco-friendly and that which strikes a balance between modern structures and nature. Even the campus educates.
