About DPS Society

The foundation stone of the first DPS building at Mathura Road in New Delhi was laid by Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan in 1949, the then Vice President of India. A non-profit, non-proprietary association working for educational excellence, the DPS Society enjoys a rich experience across six decades. By providing education to a wide community, the society is contributing to individual, community and national progress.

The DPS Society believes in a universal educational programme, encompassing a respect for cultures, convictions, communities and societies. Represented by a pan- national (220 schools) and pan-global (20 outside India) presence, the society is present across 20 states and 44 cities in India and 12 countries (including USA, Kuwait, Sharjah, Doha, Dubai, Nepal and Indonesia).
