Reader Engagement Initiative

It is said that the destiny of a nation is shaped in its classrooms. A school must, thus, facilitate the holistic development of intelligent, principled, balanced, open-minded, resilient and socially responsible human beings. Jankidevi Public School encourages and gives opportunities to its students to become knowledgeable and learn through the process of enquiry, reflection and communication.
The mission statement of the school endorses this view by stating that it endeavours for activity-oriented quality education which is pupil-centred, creating an international-minded student community.

Education is the most powerful tool that can be used to transform the society and aid towards its betterment. With such a lofty vision, the school was started by its Founder-Chairman, Mr. Narendra Verma on 13th June, 1999. It is a temple of education providing an enriching environment to over 2000 students from Playgroup through the Eleventh grade. It was recognized by the ISO in 2005 and switched over to the ICSE Board in order to cater to the need of the times and on the demand of parents. The IGCSE, Cambridge (UK) curriculum was also introduced in 2007 keeping in view the requirements of parents who wish to send their wards for studies abroad.
