DPS, Rohini, has topped the rankings for the north zone for the second consecutive year. Rita Sen, its principal, brushed aside the achievement, saying, “Achievements keep happening every year. She was happy with the board results this year. The school, which scored 79 on academic rigour, the third-highest in the north zone, had a 100% positive result for Class 10 and 99.43% for Class 12. Agreeing that teachers play the most important role in getting a school good board results, Sen said that she was very happy to have the teachers she did. This year, along with other CBSE schools, her school’s Class 10 students won’t be giving a traditional board exam, but will instead be tested through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE).
Talking about the new evaluation method, Sen said: “CCE has been a major change. We took the parents through the process, explaining how the new evaluation is done.”
The school also scored the highest in life skills education. Sen spoke of one child whose achievement stood out in her memory. “Ekansh Gupta stood second in the DPS Maths Science Olympiad 2009. He has been awarded a Maruti Suzuki Alto for the achievement.” Class 10 student Gupta, who names science as his favourite subject, said about the experience, “It helped me assess where I stand in relation to other students.”
The school also has two libraries, both for junior and senior sections with over 20,000 books.
They also have a trained counsellor to advise children on academic as well as other problems.
