Competitive Edge Programme
To beat the fear of competitive examination, our school started the Competitive Edge Programme for students from classes IV – X under the aegis of DPS since 2018. In this programme , a team of skilled teachers helps the students to develop their analytical, logical and reasoning skills. The students are provided with the right teaching methodology and study material to excel in the exams. These classes are scheduled on every SATURDAY and TUESDAY (during stay back).
The competitive exams like NTSE, SMTE, RMO, Aryabhatta, Ramanujan and other State, National and International level Olympiads help in magnifying the child’s potential in Mathematics, Science, English and Computers. These exams cover all aspects of the child’s personality. Such exams not only prepare the child in different subjects but also enhance their strongest talent and highlight their most prominent element of interest.
Under this programme our young Dipsites show the best results and make our school proud.
Despite the ongoing challenges of pandemic Covid-19, the school conducts regular sessions of Competitive Edge Programme. It’s our resolute commitment to the programme that enables our students to secure first rank in the prestigious global competitive exams such as SOF etc.
Be the change
‘Be the change’–Integration of Sustainable goals into classrooms.
Keeping the holistic education approach in mind, our school has introduced a curriculum based on integration of Sustainable Development Goals in our primary and middle school.
This project aims to develop empathy and compassion in students by making them understand the challenges faced by us as citizens of the world.
Be The Change- is a series of integrated worksheets to engage, educate, and inspire our young dipsites to actively participate for fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is vital for achieving the 2030 Goals that envision ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. There is an international consensus that SDG should be ‘embedded in the whole curriculum, not as a separate subject’.
Be the Change is based on the principle that embedding and integration are necessary to achieve the sustainable development goals. The endeavour of DPS Greater Faridabad is to shape and build a Cadre of sensitive students who will serve well the interest of India and the world by becoming responsible global citizens.
Principal's Choice Period
Strong connect with school leadership through the weekly Principal’s Choice period to build and share perspectives, innovation and appreciation of life at school and beyond it.
The school stables are abuzz with happy neighing of our seven horses. Our students have given these names- Megha, Badal, Juliet, Venzo, Topgun, Raffle and Rusty. Under the excellent care of an experienced care taker, the horse-riding facility is preparing students to be able riders and caring animal lovers.
Discovering New Perspectives (DNP)
Under the aegis of DNP, DPS Greater Faridabad launched the programme for parent-school partnership on December 14, 2013 in an effort to foster stronger relationship between the school and the home, focusing on the child as the loci of both the parent as well as the school. On regular basis parents are provided with guidance on sensitive issues like how to study during exams, happy kids, happy you, good eating habits, and ‘Weekend with Parents’ for students from classes Nursery to II that focuses on parents spending productive time with their children. The ‘Once Again’ segment of this activity carries a fascinating fact introduced in the week. Through DNP, the school aspires to be a resourceful medium of support to parents through education and empowerment necessary for sound parenting.

This honour is a coveted one and students strive to win the Scholar Badge that comes with a specially monogrammed winter blazer pocket.
I Read… I Lead Programme
“I Read…. I Lead”, is an active reading programme operational for our dipsites. It provides a wonderful incentive for our student to develop literary skills and ability to read with expression. For students of class I, our core idea is of getting hands-on library experience and mastering basic reading skills. For class II – VIII, students select books from the suggested list of books (as per their age and reading interest) and read and maintain a reading record.
Various incentives which students of classes II to XI receive are:
- For 10 books read at the earliest -a special bookmark
- For 20 books in an academic year-a Bronze Reader Badge
- For 3 years Consecutive Bronze Reader-a Silver Badge
- For 5 years Consecutive Silver Reader-a Golden Badge
Badge holders volunteer in our various reading programmes viz. Book fair, Book Clubs, Library Quiz, and various activities.
The Mentors Studio
With the keen desire to expose students to broadening of horizon, new professional opportunities available in the real world and to bring professionally qualified and well placed parents into active contact with students, the school has created access to a pool of professionally qualified parents who are willing to interact with students on diverse subjects such as information as careers, creative skills, attitude building, communication skills,
physical fitness etc. The Mentors interact at well chosen opportunities with students and guide their development.
Through mentoring this programme, the students receive an opportunity to interact with a Parent Mentor and share life’s journey. We hope to build both relationships and knowledge of real life options from real-life professionals.
Junior Sports Complex
The colorful and vibrant world of The Little Wonders Wing gets plenty of action from the Junior Sports Complex with multifarious features like mini basketball court, mini lawn tennis court, mini skating rink, splash pool and mini soccer field. It is a happy and actions filled space of learning and growing for our students of Nursery-II.

an audio visual cue. For the same, DPS Greater Faridabad has endorsed smart classrooms that use presentations and visually effective content supplements to enhance the learning experience. The school houses fully functional classrooms equipped with Interactive boards from Pearson, Extramarks and Juana Technologies.
ATL (Atal Tinkering Lab)
ATL (Atal Tinkering Lab) of the school is a work space where young minds give shape to their ideas through hands on do it yourself mode; and learn innovation skills. Students get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand the concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). ATL contains educational and learning ‘do it yourself’ kits and equipment on – science, electronics, robotics, open source microcontroller boards, sensors, 3D printers and computers.
Robotics Lab (Powered by LEGO education)
Science is all about understanding how things work around us and what better way to simulate the same by means of robotics. Over the past decade, the subject has taken the world by storm and it continues to gain momentum. This lab endeavors to provide an effective experiential learning tool for students, using LEGO and Arduino products, which assist them in understanding the various concepts of science by means of implementing them in a controlled and guided environment.
Delhi Public School Greater Faridabad believes that a nearly sensitization to the subject would further facilitate logical and analytical thinking of a child and help him/her effectively translate the learning into success in many walks of his/her life.
Effective teaching and learning of each subject involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials. The knowledge that kids attain in classrooms would be ineffectual unless they actually observe the process and understand the relationship between action and reaction. The school has well equipped laboratories for Mathematics, Language, Science, Social Science, and IT. Students are encouraged to use these laboratories to learn through experiments.
Our universe is a fascinating place, with planets, stars, asteroids and other celestial bodies adding to its enigma and attraction. The school is running its Astronomy Club successfully in association with an organization, SPACE so as to stimulate young scientific minds.

To promote collective spectatorship by students, parents and teacher and weave the magic of having a familiar space transformed into a screening venue to share memorable experiences together, DPS Greater Faridabad launched Reel@81– its movie club on 15 August 2015 by screening the all times favorite patriotic movie ‘HAQEEQAT’. Since then, every year this movie club has shown timeless classic movies such as ‘Utsav’, ‘Pursuit of Happiness’, ‘Boot Polish’ and “ET” to name a few, with enthusiastic response from the parents and students.
Movies often serve as magnets for curious shy minds making audiences emotionally receptive to learning and solving the most complex issues. REEL@81 aims to bring together parents, teachers & management as an intimate and informal gathering where they can encounter ideas, experiences and emotions that may not be an everyday topic of our lives… thus building coherent relationships.
