The Government of India has launched a scheme to establish on an average, one Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) in each district in the country, with the following objectives.
To provide good quality modern education including a strong component of culture, values, environment awareness and physical education to talented children in rural areas without regard to their family’s socio-economic condition. To ensure that all students ofNavodaya Vidyalaya attain a reasonable level of competence in three languages as envisaged in the three-language formula.
Navodaya Vidyalaya System is a unique experiment unparalleled in the annals of school education in India and elsewhere. Its significance lies in the selection of talented rural children as the target group and the attempt to provide them with quality education comparable to the best in a residential school system. Such children are found in all sections of society, and in all areas including the most backward.
But, so far, good quality education has been available only to well-to-do sections of society, and the poor have been left out. It was felt that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided opportunities to proceed at a faster pace, by making good quality education available to them, irrespective of their capacity to pay for it.These talented children otherwise would have been deprived of quality modern education traditionally available only in the urban areas.

Such education would enable students from rural areas to compete with their urban counterparts on an equal footing. The National Policy on Education-1986 envisaged the setting up of residential schools, to be called Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas that would bring out the best of rural talent.

As per the National Education Policy 1986, the Government has established Jawahar NavodayaVidyalayas throughout the country. Under the same policy Jawahar NavodayaVidyalayaGondia was established in 1987 and well-constructed at NavegaonBandh near to National Park, in the laps of the pastoral beauty. It has the blessings of calm and serene environment. Vidyalaya has all residential facilities, well established 3 science labs i.e. Chemistry,Biology and Physics.It has also, Mathematics Lab, Computer Lab and Samsung Smart Class. Vidyalaya has also Gym and different playfield with 400 meter tracks. The Vidyalaya has maintained beautiful green campus with the help of SUPW teacher, staff and students. The school is nurturing and educating meritorious students of Districts of Bhandara and Gondia.

Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Gondia is running VI to XII classes.At present strength of the school consists of total 482 students. Since last five years the school has been producing 100% quality and quantity results for
Board and Non-Board classes.JNV Gondia is One of the school Under Top Ten Ranking Schools in the Country’s 600 (Six Hundred) schools. The school has gained its name and fame due to the devoted, dedicated and hardworking teachers who are serving round the clock for the betterment of the school. The school is aiming not only towards the academic but also taking care of all round development of the students’ personality. So, keeping this view time and again students are motivated and boosted to participate actively in various activities- like sports and games, Scout and Guide and Co-Curricular Activities too. Every year at least 20 students (10 boys and 10 Girls) are getting RajyaPuraskar in the field of Scout and Guide.

Apart from this from last ten years the vidyalaya is doing significant work for the wellbeing of the society. Near about 60 students were selected in the field of Medicine i.e. for MBBS and after completing their degrees they have been serving for the betterment and welfare of the society. In the span of ten years up to year 2016 near about 15 students have been selected for IIT and 20 students have been selected for NIT. In an average 2 to 3 students use to crack IIT’s every year.
