About Sainik School Kazhakootam. Its Curriculum & No. Of Seats
Sainik School Kazhakootam-
Sainik School Kazhakootam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India, is a residential school under the Ministry of Defence, Government of India, located approximately 18 km away from Thiruvananthapuram city on the National Highway 66.
The concept of the Sainik school originated in the mind of late V. K. Krishna Menon, who was India’s first Defence Minister (1957-1962). He felt that a school run on military lines, in each state of India, would provide the intake to the National Defence Academy. Moreover, the high levels of physical, mental and intellectual attainments needed for induction into the Officer Cadre could not be nurtured in the common schools, mainly because of the lack of infrastructure facilities.
- The curriculum is designed to fit in both academics and sports to provide the training that the boys need to enter National Defence Academy and Defence Forces.
