JNV Through Years
The starting troubles of the Vidyalaya were braved through and brought to the present status by the collective and team work of a set of dedicated set of principals, teachers and students. The glory of the Vidyalaya in the academic and non academic field has been brought to greater sheen and finish by the industry and commitment of the subsequent team of principals, teachers, non-teaching staff and students. This year the institution is sending out the twentyfirst batch of class XII to win laurels and achieve greater heights.
