About School /  School details



 Andaman and Nicobar Islands are an archipelago of 572 Islands, covering an area of 8249Sq. Km, are spread over about 780 km from north to south in Bay of Bengal. The Andaman group of islands is 219 miles in length, its extreme width, however is nowhere more than 32 miles. The most important islands in the group are the three Andaman islands   North, Middle and South Andaman. These three islands are separated from one another by narrow straits. Port Blair is the capital of Andaman and Nicobar group of islands. These pristine islands are located far from the mother country, but within the close quarters with some of  the South-East Asian countries like Jawa, Sumatra, Indonesia. Port Blair is linked either by the road or by sea route to all the 38 inhabited islands.

            According to the belief, the Andaman and Nicobar group of islands also known as the Bay island, which lie in the bay of Bengal, once formed part of a continuous mountain range, stretching in a curve from cape Negrais in Burma to Achin Head in Sumatra; cape Negrais was itself in the nature of an extension of the Arakan Hill range which in then, is one of a series of ranges that run down the Eastern Himalayas.

There are number of important creeks in these islands, which help to link the islands with one another through ferry services. Boats small  or big buses ply between  these islands and Port Blair.

Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya is situated at Rangat in Panchawati village. This  Vidyalaya is spread in sprawling area of  12     hectares  amidst mountains covered with evergreen forest and perennial streams which flows through out the year. The scenic beauty around Vidyalaya  gives a serene and soothing, tranquil  environment which   is conducive for good health and to do studies.  This Vidyalaya is very well connected  by buses and boats from Port Blair and other parts of Islands.


Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya  was established during the academic year 1986-1987 with strength of 80 students in class IV it was at Bloomsdale, Chauldhari, south Andaman and functioning at temporary site  provided by Directorate of Agriculture, Port Blair. The Vidayalaya was shifted to the permanent site at Panchawati Village, Rangat taluk, Middle Andaman during the year 1996-1997.


The Andaman District is predominantly inhabited by settlers from erstwhile East Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jharkand, and retired Govt. employees from forest and agricultural department. Hence, the student population are also from five different mediums viz Bangla, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and English. As most of parents have  poor economic background, most of our students are first generation learners   and about 40% of them are below poverty line. The schedule caste category students are very few who have got certificates  issued from their native state. Otherwise  Andaman &Nicobar Islands Administration do not issue such SC category certificates. Very few  about 4%  Nicobaries whose parents are serving in Govt. Services in Andaman District sought admission under ST category. Only about 5% of students  parents are graduates though as per Navodaya policy 25% of seats are reserved for urban area ( i.e Port Blair municipal area) only 5 -10% turn up for admission as there are very  good educational facilities available at  Port Blair. Unfilled quota of seats of Urban area is  filled up by the rural area students by CBSE. Most of the students are from families of settlers and their houses are having very meager  facilities and very remotely located and not able to attend school daily such are the student population of this vidyalaya. As a whole  the socio economic background of our students is backward and below poverty line.
