Demands for admissions at army schools have been picking up in the recent times. The main reason behind this is the quality of education, infrastructure facilities and the discipline that these schools imbibe in the students at a very young age. In India, almost all the military schools are CBSE-affiliated and while some accept only the students with military family background, others accept all kinds of students.
Here are the top army schools in Maharashtra that you may want to take a look at, for your child.
