    Best for NDA and also one of the best Sainik school but the lower classes such as 6 and 7 have to face a lot of problems that I don't like but those problems also make you emotionally, physically and mentally strong.So if your aim is NDA then no doubt this is the best school but for those people whose aim is not NDA Don't even try to look over this school.
