"SERVICE BEFORE SELF" This means that we serve others willingly, graciously and selflessly. We should not expect anything in return for our service because there is greater pleasure in giving than in receiving. By serving others we serve God.

Daratassalam International Delhi Public School being the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has started its operation in April 2004, in Riyadh, under a franchise agreement with the Delhi Public School Society.Delhi Public School has come to be recognized throughout the academic world as the best brand known for its progressive approach and commitment to excellence through well designed Instructional program and flexible and unique International School Management systems.

DPS prepares students for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) of India, later facilitating them to the option of simultaneously appearing for the British and/or the CBSE schools certificate examinations.We build our students to achieve excellence in scholastic and non-scholastic activities so as to become a wholesome personality.We inculcate in the students a sense of appreciation for his culture and traditions and infusing in them a sense of tolerance for other cultures and beliefs without losing sight of their identity and their roots.

In DPS we transform the student into an individual with sound academic base, analytical skills, civic responsibilities and cultural values by providing an environment for the student to become competitive, loving, sympathetic and accommodative without compromising on individual values.DPS Creates an environment where every individual in the campus has the freedom to think, express and redefine boundaries set for them for the better cause of humanity and be a world class citizen.


To me the very purpose of quality education is character building. Children are malleable material who can be shaped into persons of excellence by their teachers. As responsible teachers, we have to be exemplary to our students if we want them to be assets to the society and the nation. I feel it is important for every child to enjoy a sense of achievement. Every child should be encouraged to perform to the fullest ability and due importance should be given to learning in areas beyond academics. An institution should be a living place that shapes children’s lives and builds their character. Therefore to assess the school’s performance only by its high academic scores is not sufficient, it is equally important for a school to be a place for happy children with a love for learning and sound value system. To achieve these objectives we need to work jointly with the parents of our pupils to create a climate for open exchange of views and experiences, supporting each others quest for quality on all fronts.


Delhi Public School aims at providing the quality education to its students. Our primary aim is to develop in the student qualities of integrity, honesty, trust, tolerance and compassion; to promote a spirit of enquiry; to foster a scientific temper within the bonds of humanism; to help the student to become a meaningful part of his environment and to see that courage and industry have their due reward. The pursuit of excellence encouraged at DPS rests on the positive belief that every man has it in him to produce work, the quality of which can be described as first class.

Towards this end the school endeavours to provide a large and dedicated teaching staff with a wide range of skills and interests, a varied and wide choice of activities academic, aesthetic and athletic, an environment enriched with the excitement of discovery, challenge and competitiveness and discipline based on the belief that responsibility comes before freedom.

Each staff member also imbibes the DPS culture and ethos, which is the thread that binds the entire teaching fraternity of the DPS Society. This academic community not only imparts instruction through the regular teaching periods, it also engages students in a variety of other ways, whether it is to conduct the morning assembly, bring out school publications, arrange and participate in cultural shows, or just simply arrange visits.
