One of the oldest schools in Noida, Delhi Public School, Noida boasts of a 15-acre campus characterised by an arched entrance, open spaces and landscaped gardens.
With 4,000 students and 230 accomplished teachers, the school aims to impart value-based education to students, making them “citizens of the world”. As Principal Kamini Bhasin says in her message, “DPS Noida’s environment is holistic, student-friendly and very supportive.”
Apart from following the set pattern of the CBSE board, the school “follows a virtual pattern of holiday homework, assignments, weekly tests and also provides model test papers to its students”, said Class 9 student Ujjwal Singh.
The school also runs a number of student societies and clubs, to make campus life exciting.
