DPS International
Co- educational, offers GCE 'A' levels, points based admission

About the School
As the name suggests, DPS International is an international school, international in the sense that it follows curricula set by foreign bodies such as the University of Cambridge, preparing students to take examinations such as the GCE AS/ A levels. The school was set up in 2003 by the Delhi Public School Society to meet the demand for international education in India, a demand fuelled by the growing number of expatriates, diplomats and NRI's in Delhi. The school has been successful in its mission and now has a strength of about 900 students drawn from 20 nationalities.

DPS International is housed in two campuses- one in R.K. Puram and the other in Saket. The junior school is located in R.K. Puram while the main school itself is in Saket. The school uses a combination of curricula to impart education. In the pre- primary period the school follows a combination of the Canadian Maple Bear Integrated Programme and the British Cambridge curriculum. The primary years are conducted along the lines of the National Curriculum of England. The middle school is again on the pattern of the Cambridge Curriculum. Finally in the senior years the students prepare first to take the IGCSE and then the GCE AS/ A levels.
