“The vision must be followed by the venture.  It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.” 

Indeed it was a vision to create a wave of consciousness where education can change the course of the progress of the nation. In turning this dream in to reality, DPS has come a long way from a humble beginning in President’s Estate in 1941 as Church High School to Naveen Bharat School in 1947.

In the journey of 50 years, DPS has produced stars, which are shining not only on Indian shore but also abroad. This institute has witnessed the movement of independence.  This is the institute which has shared the joy of independence with the whole nation.  With the arrival of independence, DPS also understood the need of awakening for emerging nation through education.

Till 1972, DPS Mathura Road, New Delhi - established in 1949, was the only DPS, but today DPS has spread its wings in all the directions and with 226 schools under the tree, among which 6 in New Delhi, 201 in other parts of the country and 19 abroad, it has become synonymous with quality education world wide.  Each DPS has carved a niche for itself and with well designed programmes they are in constant pursuit of achieving educational excellence.
