Delhi Public Schools Society (DPSS) is a registered society which owns the brand name Delhi Public School (DPS). DPS is the largest chain of schools in India and abroad. DPSS established its first school, Church High School, in 1941, in the President’s Estate. Post-independence, Naveen Bharat School was set-up and in 1949, was rechristened Delhi Public School, with its present location on Mathura Road, New Delhi.
The second DPS was started in Ram Krishna Puram, New Delhi, in 1972. Over the last seven decades, DPSS has grown from strength-to-strength, with more than 150 schools, not just in India, but also internationally. DPSS aims to preserve and enhance the highest standards of excellence and prepare generations for the future. The philosophy of DPSS is carefully ingrained in its students, sensitising them to environmental concerns and inculcating in them the feeling of nationalism and communal harmony.
Kush Education Society (KES), formed in 2001, set-up its first Delhi Public School at Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, in 2002. It has never looked back since. With the active collaboration and support of DPSS, KES has emerged as a centre of excellence in imparting quality education. The KES School, DPS Varanasi, has student strength of over 3000 and a faculty of nearly 175. This overwhelming response from the citizens and students has encouraged KES to reach for greater heights. DPS Nashik, in the first year of its inception, offers schooling from Nursery to Class VI. It will go on to become a K-12 school in the years to come and will follow the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi curriculum.
