To quote Colin Powell “The healthiest competition occurs when average considered people win by putting above average effort”
By: Desert Chronicle
The school which started with an enrollment of 60 students for the Nursery, LKG, First Junior and Class1 has grown today till Class VIII with well over 8 times the enrollment. The teacher strength at JMA also has grown from 5 in 2004 to 23 presently. A noteworthy fact is that the girl student enrollment has been steadily rising every year in JMA and is presently close to 50% of total strength which itself is a matter of pride in a state which had alarmingly low record of girl’s education.
