To provide a conducive environment for a future-oriented, holistic education, anchored in a rigorous academic programme, for children. We nurture students to be independent life-long learners imbibed with sound moral values so that students are respectful and responsible, and rise to the challenges of life creatively and enthusiastically in an ever-changing world.
Over a period of sixty years DPS has gathered experience and knowledge in managing education keeping in mind the latest trends in education and future needs of the society.
We aim to preserve and enhance the high standards of excellence and prepare capable and responsible citizens for the 21st century. DPS has developed child- centric education system because learning comes naturally to a child so it need not to be forced through rote learning. The child's participation and experience is of paramount importance to us as educators. The school intends to enable each student to realise his/ her potential to the fullest and achieve his/her dreams. This is what gives us supreme satisfaction.
The DPS teaching - learning pattern is joyful and builds a healthy relationship between teachers and students. A journey of discovery is through activities and observations. The tools are the books and aids thoughtfully designed by teachers. This all forms the repertoire of the curriculum but equally important is the nature around us: trees, gardens and playgrounds of the school. Great emphasis is laid on thematic studies. Thematic instruction is based on the idea that children acquire knowledge best by correlating concepts of different subjects with the real life around us.
If we look back, students have been discouraged from verbalizing their thoughts and queries in classrooms and the result had been the majority of students afraid to speak in the public domain. But DPS guidelines emphasises more to promote thinking and to speak coherently and intelligently. We have interwoven thinking skills and speaking skills development programs as an intrinsic part of the curriculum.
Keeping the tradition of DPS to give exposure to students, we plan to invite famous personalities from a wide spectrum for talks, seminars and interaction with students. Dignitaries and artistes will also be invited to the campus to give an insight to children as to what is happening around the globe, how other people live and the cultures they follow.
We aspire to see that each alumnus becomes a leader, entrepreneur, professional etc. This can be achieved by a multidimensional education in formative years of a child in the school, so the training starts early in school with students taking on various, responsibilities through participation in the school's prefectorial body. We assure that each teacher of our campus will play multiple roles - to be a friend, philosopher and mentor to the young inquisitive minds and souls.
At DPS, the purpose of education is to develop the complete child, someone who is keen to explore, has the emotional quotient to take everything in stride and has the social skills to interact with the world at large. It is easier to rule a nation than to bring up a child! Children question the authenticity of everything they see around them; Academics do contribute but only a part of their growth. It is the physical and mental growth which needs to be stressed at the primary school level, without which the all-round development is incomplete. We look forward to acknowledge the achievements of our students and wish to celebrate the same within the school and community.
We plan to make our ‘depsites’ health conscious and have sound physical strength by counselling them to adopt proper eating habit and also to involve themselves in different sports like chess, basketball, football, badminton, table tennis, lawn tennis, roller skating and swimming etc.
Along with a sound body a creative mind's development is also the responsibility of the school. We plan to organize various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities which will encourage children to be original and expressive. We want to see them creating own stories, writing scripts, spreading colours with a force in their brush strokes and direct their own little projects with the help of their teachers. The aim is to help children to become confident and come over their hesitation. Children shirk on their shyness and fear through multifarious joyful theatrical games and exercises. We ensure that students of Delhi Public School; will master the expanding horizons of technology to become the repository of a deep commitment to Indian ethos and culture.
No matter how much these efforts may succeed, we are sure of one thing; that our children, after finishing schooling in Delhi Public School, will emerge as well-informed and confident human being, ready to acquire the role of morally sound, responsible global citizen and a master in his or her own field. The concept of 'Enlightened Citizens of the World' is the backdrop of all our efforts.
