Introduction & History
RLPS Chain of Institutions
from Cradle to Ingenuity
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, has been aptly said by Alexander Pope. This is true of people living in all the ages, because real learning and wisdom does not come to all. There are many who love to blow their own trumpet with their half baked and fanciful ideas. In the realm of education too, people may be called literate but whether they are truly educated, is a subject which calls for deep concern and contemplation. However we are not left without hope because still there are many educational institutions which are committed to educating and grooming individuals.
One such institution is Rani Laxmi Bai Group of Public schools, which was established by Dr. Pandit Vishwanath Sharma. Inspired by the ideals and values of his father – Vaidya (Pt.) Ram Narayan Sharma, Dr. Sharma laid down the foundation of Rani Laxmi Bai Public School, Jhansi in 1983. In 1992, Rani laxmi Bai Public school was set up at Datia and to follow it closely, was the establishment of Rani Laxmi Bai Public School at Lalitpur in 1993.
With English as the medium of instruction, the three schools have emphasized on imparting quality education to the students by developing scientific temperament and modern outlook, and yet retaining the cultural values and the glorious tradition of the country.

The school at the onset, was a primary school only but by 1989, it had gone upto standard VII. By 1995, the scenario was very heartening as the first batch of std. XII was ready to appear for the first Board Examination. So far, sixteen batches for I.S.C. and twenty batches for I.C.S.E. have appeared for their respective board examinations. The brilliant results at both the levels has facilitated the selection of students in several Medical, Engineering and varied professional courses over the years.
A very striking and exclusive feature of RLPS, Jhansi is the boarding facility for boys, which has proved to be very profitable for the students. In 1992, the concept of a Boys Hostel, became a veritable reality, and ever since then, there has been no looking back. All possible comforts have gone into making the hostel a home away from home.
