History[edit]

Rajmata Krishna Kumari of Jodhpur sought to establish a prestigious English medium school for girls in western Rajasthan. His son Maharaja Gaj Singh founded Rajmata Krishna Kumari Girls' Public School in the summer of 1992 by donating a part of his personal property known as Saresh Kothi and Bichli Kothi along with other buildings. The school is situated at Raika bagh, Jodhpur and sprawls over 5.0 acres (20,000 m2).[2]

The school has now grown to a senior secondary school with over 1500 students. The co-education facility exists up till class V.[3] The school follows the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum.[4] Alumni of the school are referred to as Aarkekians.
