Narain Das Grover the begetter of groves, so to say of educational institutions was a peerless persona, a futuristic, a coaxer, a great social reformer, fired by a sense of expedition. A virtual 'grower' of top-of-the line educational institutions. N.D. Grover was an institution in himself. He had always been in the avantagarde of the educational gyration. Hidden in a seemingly frail body was an indomitable spirit, a personality endowed with boundless energy, with which he went about forging the coruscating manacle of DAV Public Schools in this region against appalling odds puts him in the class of the irreplaceable souls who live and breathe their mission. A one man army, he mutated the educational landscape and educational destiny of Bihar and Jharkhand.
In the year 1989 he visited Daltonganj and felt the pulse of the people deprived of quality education and in the same year Mahatma N.D. Grover laid a rock solid foundation for quality education. The school was started in a rented building. It was shifted to the existing aesthetically and ergonomically designed building complex whose land is donated by an entrepreneur Sardar Harbans Singh in the cherished memory of his late wife Mahinder Kaur. Nestled in the lush green surroundings of the Palas trees, the magnificent M.K. DAV edifice, towering over the academic landscape of Daltonganj, stands out as a narcissistic testimony to what a pertinacious hue and cry of excellence can accomplish. M.K. DAV Public School, Daltonganj with a student resilience of 4000 approx, disseminated over an area of 4.11 acres in two wings, stands in the vanguard of quality and value added education in the region.
The educational motive of M.K. DAV is to provide quality education to all and free education to the meritorious, financially poor, down trodden as well as socially backward tribal students. Its proliferated campus, state-of-the art labs, a well racked library, a highly qualified, competent and committed fortis together with a multus unus features make it a dream educational institution. The school is co-educational and affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi upto Std-XII Science and Commerce stream.
