JNVs are fully residential, Co-educational schools affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi, having classes from VIth to XII standard. These vidyalayas are managed by Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, an autonomous body, under the H.R.D Ministry, Government of India. Each vidyalaya is locally monitored by a committee chaired by the District Collector/District Magistrate. Our students are predominantly from rural areas and there is 30% reservation for girls. Quality modern education with a strong component of culture, promotion of National Integration through migration of students between Hindi speaking and Non-Hindi speaking states, are the salient features of Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme. The JNV at Gandey, Giridih is at the forefront of educational excellence with excellent academic results as well as commendable achievements in the field of Sports and Cultural pursuits and functioning as a pace setting institution in the district.
