Jabalpur, also known as ‘Sanskardhani’ is the hub of many educational institutions. There are many schools in Jabalpur that are affiliated to different types of boards such as CBSE, ICSE or even state board. Jabalpur has always been a host to different kinds of schools, which are providing the best possible educational services to the students who belong to the different parts of the district. These days, multiple schools are opening round the corner, which are not even affiliated to any of the boards. And at the same time, there are some well established schools that have been serving the students of Jabalpur for many years now, and have established a certain level of trust among the parents. In Jabalpur there are 58 CBSE schools, 3 ICSE schools, 115 state board schools and some boarding schools. Let us have a look into each category.
