Navjyoti School began in the year 1985 as a special school to cater to the educational needs of the intellectually challenged children of Dharan Municipality. The objective of the school was to provide a learning atmosphere for the socially alienated children hidden away in their homes so as to equip them with skills for self reliance. However, in the year 1987, as part of government’s effort to consolidate special education, Navjyoti Special School was taken over by the Government of Nepal.
Established on 04.01.1988 with the motto of For God and Country, Service before Self, Navjyoti School is recognized by the Department of School Education of Nepal. Sister Rosita was the first Principal of the school while Sister Sunita served as the first Principal of the high school. The school has so far sent 10 batches of students for SLC examination.
