Guided by a team of devoted and selfless individuals, it is helmed by eminent personalities who exemplify its noble mission. Under the diligent management of DPSS in New Delhi, Delhi Public Schools (DPS) have emerged as India's premier educational institutions. The first institution, known today as DPS Mathura Road, was established within the dignified premises of the President's Estate in New Delhi. Over the span of six decades, the Delhi Public School Society has cultivated a network of schools across India and expanded its reach to various corners of the world, solidifying its position as one of the largest chains of schools. With branches in major cities across India and in countries like Indonesia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, UAE, Uganda, and more, the global network comprises approximately 208 English medium, co-educational, and secular schools, offering education from Pre-Nursery/Nursery to Class XII. However, the DPS Family transcends beyond a mere compilation of institutions, individuals, and factual details.
