Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Neriamangalam was established in 1987 to realize the noble objectives of Navodayas by providing free education to the talented students from various parts of Ernakulam district. It is located opposite the bus stand of Neriamangalam village. The village nestles under the foothills of High Range Region of Munnar with wonderful luscious greenery of the Western Ghats range of mountains around it. The school campus is in two parts, each having an area of about 10 acres. It consists of a massive Academic Block, separate dormitories for boys and girls with sufficient capacity, Kitchen, separate dining halls for boys and girls, play grounds and Staff Quarters. All teaching staff including the Principal is comfortably accommodated inside the campus to ensure better monitoring of school activities. JNV, Neriamangalam has today matured into a coveted centre of excellence among the 598 Navodaya Vidyalayas of the country.
The Students appear for Board Examination in classes X and XII conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). At Plus Two level, the vidyalaya has 2 streams: Science and Commerce. Under Science stream English, Physics and Chemistry are compulsory and Mathematics/Hindi and Biology/Computer Science are Optional Subjects. Under Commerce Stream, English, Accountancy, Business Studies and Economics are compulsory and Informatics Practices, Hindi and Mathematics are optional subjects.
Commendable achievements have been made in academics as well as co-curricular activities. The quality education given enables the children, mostly from rural background, to face the professional entrance examinations and National talent tests and to face life itself as useful and active members of society. We feel that the infinite hopes and aspirations of the founders of the Navodaya system, the parents and the society have been met.
