The school campus will be given a lot of thought in the planning stage as it is a space where children will spend major portion of their student life. This is important as a child will live through different phases of student life in this second home. As such our school is a matrix that synergies seamlessly to help our students ascend through these phases effortlessly.
The Pre-Primary wing will house the Pre-Nursery, the Nursery and the Preparatory classes. Thoughtfully designed classrooms will provide a warm environment that is so essential for the growing years. A team of Pre-School, Early Childhood Care and Education and Montessori trained teachers will gently initiate the little ones into the world of learning.
Primary Level will brings the world of written and printed words to the children. The Primary Wing has Class I to Class V. Hands-on learning through thematic curriculum will be introduced and children will be given access to facilities like Library, Swimming Pool, AV Room, Art & Craft Centre, Fine Art Centre, Games Hall and exposed to new subjects in a phased and gradual manner. Subjects like EVS will become a part of the syllabus and students will be gradually introduced to various concepts of science, history and geography delivered through a mix of classroom teaching and audio-visual media. Hobbies and aptitudes are identified and encouraged.
Academics will take on a different dimension once students reach Class VI. Here onwards students study in the Secondary Level. A more substantive curriculum will be introduced including subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Social Sciences and Mathematics. Classroom lectures will integrate experiment-based teaching to elucidate concepts and theories. Dedicated subject laboratories will be utilised to demonstrate practical applications. As soon as students reach Class VIII their curriculum will be geared towards mastering the CBSE Board Exams that they will face in the next couple of years.
Safe and comfortable commute for students is a must and to ensure that we will operate our own fleet of school buses. All the drivers will be trained and supervised by teachers who are well-versed in safety norms. All our buses will be equipped with first aid equipment and the supervisory teachers will be well-versed in its application.
Technology will serve as the cement for the academic building blocks. Integration of computer into the curriculum will be extensively practised and IT learning will be given a lot of priority. Students will be encouraged to carry-out research-based assignments through supervised access to the internet and off-line resources.
The campus is designed to cater to the needs of young, growing children. Well-maintained buildings balanced with space for varied sports and activities promise a well-blanced physical and mental well being.
No corners have been cut in making the facilities most modern and student friendly. Deep thought has gone into creating an environment in which students are encouraged to seek excellence academically, socially, physically, artistically, and spiritually.
Indoor and outdoor sports receive equal attention through a comprehensive sports stadia and indoor games. Each student has to also compulsorily participate in athletics, games and swimming.
As such tennis, basketball, football, cricket, badminton, table tennis and volleyball form a regular part of the sports and physical education curriculum
A typical working day at DPS provides an exposure to academic as well as non-academic learning—classroom teaching, hands-on project work, sports, cultural activities, literary activities, excursions, computers, social work and community service. We inculcate not only high academic standards, but high behavioural standards as well.
The system of evaluation employed lays stress on learning outcome of a group rather than assessing individuals in absolute isolation. The focus in junior classes is on exploration, experimentation and on building and strengthening conceptual basics. In higher classes formal evaluation, encompasses both academic and non-academic learning, and the focus shifts to gauging the student’s comprehensive patterns.
While academics will be honed in classrooms, a plethora of on- and off-campus activities will take care of the artistic and cultural aspirations of the students. These activities help develop critical skills such as confidence, personality, leadership, teamwork, creativity and management.
Pursuit of hobbies and craft will be encouraged and special periods, under the guidance of experts, will be allocated for the same.
These will be regular features of the school’s curriculum. Students will be taken to historical sites, eco-preserves and museums. Outstation trips for senior students will be organised for getting to know this incredible country better.
As one of the key stakeholders, parents are encouraged to voice their opinions and concerns. And we are committed to addressing the same for the success of our partnership.
We encourage parents to support their child’s educational experiences by offering an appropriate level of help and taking interest in the child’s school experiences.
In this relationship, the child is allowed to relax and express his/her feelings freely. The teacher then responds and guides the child, constantly observing the independent characteristics of the individual child.
An open and transparent dialogue between the teacher and parent is a must for the growth of the child. This at our school will be achieved by PTA meets. From time to time we also conduct workshops and lectures on parenting tips and tricks and encourage parent-teacher interaction.
