Our History

Pioneer of quality education and holistic growth

In 1954, the Government of Bihar set up Netarhat Vidyalaya,with the objective of promoting excellence. The experiment proved to be a success. It provided an opportunity to a
number of young and intelligent students of Bihar to become ideal and successful citizens by fusing the traditional Indian values with the modern scientific attitude. The alumni of Netarhat Vidyalaya felt the need not only to keep the Netarhat spirit alive, but also to contribute effectively to the educational excellence of Bihar. Hence, the Alumni
and the retired teachers resolved to set up a Residential School which would run on Netarhat pattern with certain modifications in the medium of instruction and curriculum. Vidya Vihar Residential School at Parora, Purnea, is an attempt to fulfill this long cherished dream.
