"Kendriya Vidyalaya, Ottapalam[1] is a school in OttapalamIndia. It was founded in 1986, with the support of Sri KR Narayanan, then member of parliament from Ottapalam. The school was started in a humble manner with less than 120 students in a rented premise in Kanniampuram.

In 1992, the School shifted to a 16-acre (65,000 m2) campus in Palappuram - where there was space for separate staff quarters, the school building, and 3 large playgrounds.

The then Vice president (and later the President of the Republic of India), K.R. Narayanan, had inaugurated the K.V. Ottapalam building in 1992. He and his security team of "Black-cats" arrived in a fleet of helicopters, which landed on the nearby NSS College Ground.

The vidyalaya has been selected as a Model Kendriya Vidyalaya in the year 2000-2001."
