 The School was established in 2008 as a pre-primary school and subsequently upgraded to primary level in 2012. It is located at Belauri Municipality, Ward No. 12, Ratanpur in Kanchanpur district. The existing infrastructure of the school building is in dilapidated condition and is inadequate to comfortably accommodate all the students.
