“Keep your mind open to change all the time. Welcome it. Court it, it is only by examining and re-examining your opinions and ideas that you can progress” Dale Carnegie’s words influenced me most of the time and thus the message that follows reflects the changes that took place in the school over a decade and adaption to new challenges that transformed the institution to this status.
As the year 2016 approached, the school has undergone a cyclopean change, a process of great possibility and great upheaval.

The uniqueness of a child and building self- esteem is the focus. Regular Sports and selective Academies working in the school, annual health audits are preparing robust citizens for future Olympics.
‘We are what we perpetually do excellence then is not an act, but a habit’ expresses Aristotle. We the family of DPS always try to achieve excellence and become spark plugs to the creativity of students. We give thought-eliciting prompts to trigger home inscribing skills and critical thinking and lead each individual to compete for own self to consummate their desire.
