To handle the schooling of the sons of defense personnel, King George’s Royal Indian Military Schools, also known as Rashtriya Military Schools, were established. The admissions process was opened to both civilian and military service officer sons in 1952 after the institutions were reorganized along public school patterns.

The institution joined the Indian Public Schools Conference (IPSC) in 1954 and is still an active participant in the organization today. The original motto, “Play the Game,” was replaced with “Sheelem Param Bhushanam,” indicating that Character is the Highest Virtue when the institutions were renamed Military institutions in 1966.

Rashtriya Military School became the official name of the school on June 25, 2007. In the armed forces, a number of the school’s former students have significant posts.

The Directorate General of Military Training at IHQ of MOD (Army) is in charge of supervising the schools, which are category “A” establishments of the Army. The Ministry of Defense’s Central Governing Council (CGC), which is taken over by the Defense Secretary, serves as these schools’ top administrative authority.

Most military schools encourage and promote key values including solidarity, respect,  accountability, discipline, and leadership.
