"Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations"
In accordance with the National Policy of Education (1986), Government of India started Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs).
Presently, the JNVs are spread in 27 States and 7 Union Territories. These are co-educational residential schools fully financed and administered by Government of India through an autonomous organisation, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti.
Admission in JNVs are made through the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test (JNVST) at Class VI.
The medium of instruction in JNVs is the mother tongue or regional language up to class VIII and English
thereafter for Maths and Science and Hindi for Social Science. Students of the JNVs appear for X and XII
Class examinations of the Central Board of Secondary Education.
