The CMR Jnanadhara Trust started the National Junior School (now CMR National Public School) in 1991. Initially, the school primarily catered to the local neighborhood children. In its first year, the school had only six kindergarten students who studied in a modest school building located in the CMR family orchard. Over time, the institution has grown into what it is today. The CMR National Public School is now a highly reputed educational institution, rated amongst the top CBSE schools in Bangalore. It is situated on a 2 acre campus, and hosts 3500 students from Montessori / Kindergarten through Grade XII every year.
