Aim of School
The aim of the school is to prepare the boys academically, physically and psychologically for entry into the National Defence Academy. Character, team spirit, dedication to purpose, a patriotic outlook and a desire to serve the country with zeal and efficiency are the qualities sought to be promoted by the training at the school.

The concept of Sainik Schools originated with   Mr. Krishna Menon, who was our Defence Minister in the early 1960s. Mr. Menon felt that a school with rudiments of a military way of life in each state of our country, could go a long way in building up an infrastructure for intake into the NDA. Thus sainik schools came into being in each state. This school is one of the 24 Sainik Schools of the country. It came into being on 16th July 1962.
