From the beginning in the President's Estate in 1941 as Church High School to Naveen Bharat School in 1947 and finally in 1949 at its present location on Mathura Road, DPS has traversed a long journey.

For more than six decades, the DPS Society has developed with a spirit and a vision. Today it stands as a citadel of learning and is committed to developing the minds and initiatives of children. The family is growing every day. The core schools have been set up by the Society and schools under aegis of the DPS Society have been established globally in collaboration with concerned public, private sector undertakings and individual entrepreneurs. The Society has proved to be a significant trendsetter in the field of school education in India.

Delhi Public Schools have demonstrated their excellence time and again not only at the Board exams but on individual levels through the accomplishment of their alumni who rank among the top leadership positions across public and private sectors.
