About Us

DPS Society

A pioneer in any field charters a course of change. The DPS Society has been a pioneer in the field of education and within its vision of providing modern education, has introduced new generation education in Pathankot. High academic standards are symbolic of its ideology and commitment to academic excellence.

Within the broad-based curriculum and options offered, ample opportunities are provided to develop and assess the critical creative thinking skills, the flexibility of approach, ability to work with and serve others and to develop grit and fortitude in the face of challenges. A kaleidoscope of extra-curricular activities aimed to expand and enlarge the intellect, support the education programme of the institution. Our mission is that the DPS product should stand apart- a student of DPS should be a confident and dynamic learner with a strong individuality.

DPS Society members believe that the most sustainable way to pay back to society is through quality education. They envisioned a school in which students will take the lead in changing society for the better; acting locally, but thinking globally. They firmly believe that until students have given back to their immediate community, they will not be able to contribute effectively to wider global issues or become global citizens. The society is committed to ensuring that it maintains a genuine focus on quality education within the parameters of its vision.

Crest and Motto

A diagonal sash carries the motto across a concave-sided shield. The Motto, ‘Service Before Self, interprets as ‘the solemn promise to extend a helping hand to those towards are not as fortunate”.

Our Ethos- Grooming Students for their Overall Development

The ethos of the school is rightly captured in its motto –Service Before Self. The school kindles in children intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual development. It aims to produce successful, responsible, creative, global citizens striving for excellence in their chosen spheres while maintaining their commitment to the progress of society. It envisions a stimulating learning environment by providing highly motivated facilitators, innovative educational methods and quality infrastructure that will help to discover, nurture and bring to fruition the treasure within.

A school is one of the four pillars of society, the others being students, parents (home), and the community. A school cannot exist in isolation and has to be sensitive towards the demands of modern trends and requirements as far as education is concerned. We have to learn and change with the variation in the environment, gearing ourselves for newer challenges.

We believe that a child who steps out of our portals has to be ready to face all the challenges that may come his/her way. We believe in raising independent and self-sufficient children. Our commitment to the people of Pathankot who have resided immense faith in us, will be to ensure that we maintain our record of academic excellence

Our History 1949

Delhi Public School Society (1949) was established with an ennobling vision: providing modern education to a young India on the brink of being an independent nation. The society envisioned that the future of a nation lay in the hands of its citizens who were well- informed, well-read and learned.

Over the years DPS has lived up to its reputation of giving to the nation successive generations of sophisticated, cultured and bright leaders who have been able to lead from the front. The alumni of DPS have left an indelible mark in all the fields. This zeal and commitment to excel, achieve and serve have been the guiding vision of the faculty and the students of Delhi Public School.

Taking a Progressive Approach

The faculty, teaching pedagogy and facilities are of truly world-class standards. Our curriculum, both academic and co-curricular, kindles a love for learning, a respect for cultural diversity and a strong sense of social responsibility among the students.

DPS in its role of a leading educational institution endeavors to prepare students in its care by imparting a holistic education, in an environment that encourages children to question, experiment and learn through observation and self- correction. The curriculum is modern and aims at fostering individuality, independence, compassion and above all, a concern for the environment.

The learning programs on offer at DPS are tailored to encourage and motivate all young children to do their best. Small classes enable students to receive individual attention. Lessons are adapted to the pace of the child in order to give them a sense of achievement when a task set for them is accomplished. This positive approach ensures that all students feel like winners at the end of the day!

Learning Beyond The Classroom

Learning is a passionate, interactive and continuous process of progressive change from unawareness to knowledge. Providing a platform to children to explore, evolve and discover makes certain that the learning process is taking place.

An environment that is conducive to learning is one which provides resources (guides and mentors) and allows space to the learner to express opinions while setting up positive lines of communication. Such surroundings help the child imbibe skills so that they become confident in themselves, articulate in their expression and are unfazed with any impediments they may face in life.

DPS is committed to building an atmosphere which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the children in its care. It also believes that true learning is not complete without parental support, and when the school and the home both join hands, the magic will unfold.
