Behind every successful institution, there has always been a dreamer. The dreamer for JMA is Dr Brij Mohan Mishra, NRI (Syracuse, New York) Physician and entrepreneur who wanted to set up a English Medium school at Pilani in memory of his beloved mother Smt Jamuna Devi. Dr Mishra and his family members Dr Suman (wife), Dr Gautam (son) and Mridula (daughter in law) took the JMA project with passion and have nurtured it at every stage. Dr Mishra’s elder brother Dr Raghunandan Mishra who lives in Canada along with his family members also supported in adding infra structure to the JMA project.
The Goenka Pariwar of Laxmi Organic Industries who are well known for their charitable work in and around Pilani as well as for the SourcePilani Rural BPO initiative which is making waves allover for the rural transformation also gave their whole hearted support and guidance for shaping up the JMA.
JMA which started in 2004 with an enrollment of 60 students for the Nursery, LKG, First Junior and Class1 has grown today till Class V with 5 times the enrollment. While the school admits both boys and girls, the girl student enrollment has been steadily rising every year and is presently over 40% of the total strength.
