The D.A.V Institutions are the gift of Arya samaj, a progressive movement founded by Swami Dayanand Saraswati in 1875. Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the great path-maker of modern India, led a crusade against the superstitious and pernicious practices that prevailed in contemporary India.
With a view to bring about a balanced and harmonious development of the future citizens of this country and to infuse in them the ideals of Vedic Culture and high sense of patriotism, Arya Samaj founded a school at Lahore in 1886 by the name of DAYANAND ANGLO VEDIC SCHOOL, This established the D.A.V. College Trust & Management Society, which later set-up a network of such educational institutions all over India. The D.A.V Movement would not have achieved its goal had not a young brilliant graduate-Mahatma Hansraj the first principal of the first D,A.V institution offered his honorary services as ‘ Jeevan Daan’ for 25 years. Matchless also is the sacrifice of his brother, Lala Mulkraj who fulfilled his pledge of supporting Hansraj’s family all these years.
The D.A.V movement has rendered a unique service in not only dispelling ignorance and illiteracy but also by producing Patriots, Freedom Fighters, Social Reformers, Intellectuals, Doctors, Engineers of unparalleled merit, Integrity and calibre.
Started in 1974 by the D.A.V College Managing Committee, New Delhi Managed by Arya Samaj, Dhurwa, Ranchi, the school has classes from Nursery to Class Xllth. School has its own 3 storyed building provided with all modern amentities in very congenial surroundings.
Due to some unavoidable circumstances, the District administration has taken over the school on 13 Dec 2003 and since then the school is being run under the guidance and control of the District authorities.
