In short school’s motto is to develop acumen and acuity in the learners to decipher the nature and harbour positive approach towards it. Dundlod Public School, Jhunjhunu is a day school that guarantees atmosphere that makes one feel homely. The building and the staffers are so humble as not to make one nostalgic. As it goes that the still water starts stinking. So the school administration, very frequently, puts the procedure and facilities to test to see whether they can stand the test of time or not and accordingly corrective and constructive steps are taken, thereby ameliorating and sharpening them. We adduce the fact that children do better and show their talent when are given a platform to act. Since we know the success of every child is contingent on its persistent toiling and sweating, we try every possible mean so that they can do their best.

School is situated at a place that is revered for giving birth to those who reflect valour. Jhunjhunu has Rani Shakti temple, Khetri Mahal and many more points of attraction to its crown. A building remains a structure of bricks and cement unless it is supported by good infrastructure. School can boast of its state-of-the-art infrastructure that is second to none. Even the smallest thing that is part of the school infrastructure had been given due consideration before it got materialized. Right from a table, a chair, a desk, a board, a projector and any other thing – everything has a scientific value
