The School's Motto is 'SERVICE BEFORE SELF'. True to DPS heritage, it strives to impart moral values, attitudes and habits which help in the creation of a new social order based on human dignity, equal opportunity and social and economic justice. The School has very clear objectives - to provide the students with an education that is enriching and rooted in sound moral values, cultural pluralism, skills necessary to earn a livelihood and courage and conviction needed to make a difference in the lives of those around. We strive to reach out to the star of perfection through an earnest academic pursuit for excellence. Trained and committed teachers in the classroom teach the skills to make a meaningful contribution to humanity, reverence to all forms of life, respect for others, the need for an open mind and the commitment to excellence. The School provides an ideal environment to nurture the young mind, body and spirit - an environment where the crucial stake holders in a child's destiny - teachers, parents and the School are brought together with a synergy that ensures that learning knows no boundaries.
Our primary aim is to develop in the student qualities of integrity, honesty, trust, tolerance and compassion: to promote a spirit of enquiry; to foster a scientific temper within the bonds of humanism; to help the student become a meaningful part of his environment and to see courage and industry have their due reward. The pursuit of excellence encouraged at DPS rests on the positive belief that every man has it in him to produce work of best quality.
Towards this end, the school endeavours to provide a large and dedicated teaching staff with a wide range of skills and interests, a varied and wide choice of activities-academic, aesthetic and athletic- in an environment enriched with the excitement of discovery, challenge and competitiveness and discipline based on the belief that responsibility comes before freedom.
