History In the last fifty-two years DPS has produced a galaxy of eminent men and women, who have brought glory to it, not only in India but abroad as well. From a small beginning in the President's Estate in 1941 as Church High School to Naveen Bharat School in 1947 and finally in 1949 at its present location on Mathura road, DPS has traversed a long journey. The birth of a new nation in 1947, was in a</p> <p>way the beginning of DPS (called Naveen Bharat then). A momentous time in the history of our nation, when a beginning was made to fulfil a social, national need. DPS was a not a silent witness to the trials and tribulations of the growing metropolis, but contributed richly to the growth of the capital, especially its academic and intellectual progress. DPS Mathura Road was the only DPS till 1972. But the parent DPS was ready to spread its wings. The many off-springs, 95 schools as on 1st September 2002, that followed from R.K.Puram in 1972 are simple assertions of the strength that is DPS. Yet what has remained unchanged is the desire to achieve and excel. It has been said, "It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end." The involvement of the Society in universal educational enhancement and its endeavor to build a democratic, pluralistic and secular nation has made all the difference. It is no more a question of lighting a candle here or there; it is an attempt at total electrification. The whole world has begun to glow with the light of literacy radiated by the Delhi Public School Society. A Holistic Approach to Education For almost five decades, the Society has developed with a spirit and a vision. Today its stands as a 'citadel of learning', and a harbinger of 'Quality Consciousness' committed to developing the minds and initiative of children. The vitality of the classrooms, the energy of the playing fields and the open friendliness of the work environment, have enabled its students to reach their fullest potential whether it is securing distinctions in the Board examinations or winning accolades in drama, debates, quizzes or sports. The special character of the DPS Society has shaped the destinies of each individual entering its folds. Our Vision Schools of the Delhi Public School Society are places where The intellectual, social, emotional, physical, spiritual and aesthetic development of the students is fostered to enhance their quality of life. Student achievement is acknowledged and celebrated within the schools and the community. Students are prepared for active, independent learning in an environment which fosters a spirit of enquiry and keen competition. Students are encouraged to contribute to decisions about their own future through school appointments and school organizations, career guidance and counselling services, that help them crystallize their goals. There is a high level of co-operation and support between the parents and the schools.</p> <p>Quality Management Quality in both academic responsibilities and accomplishments is excellence that endures.
