The birth of a new nation in 1947 was in a 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 Mathura Road was the only school till DPS R.K.Puram came into being in 1972. Over 200 schools that followed are simple assertions of the strength that is DPS.

Activities and events related to value education, environment, health education, games and sports, visual and performing arts, culture and heritage, international experience sharing, personality development etc. are effectively woven into the main fabric of school curriculum.”Here is the current list of schools under the DPS bannerHow to go about taking / starting a DPS FranchiseInitially there was a lot of controversy between DPS Society and DPS Trust.
