About JNV schools

Managed by the NVS, every Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) is a residential school offering the CBSE curriculum and has separate hostel accommodation for boys and girls. Predominantly set up to provide quality education to children in rural areas, the students get free education, including campus accommodation. Expenses for school uniforms and textbooks as also for other things like stationery are covered as well. Teachers impart the classroom lessons in the mother tongue or in the regional language where the JNV is located up to Class VIII.
