The strong DPS family with more than 140 schools across the globe is a living testimony to one of the oldest institutions in India -the joint family system. On one hand, beginning in 1949 it has in its fold, established stalwarts that continue to be forces to be reckoned with Internationally. On the other hand, there are newer schools that have the rich experience of their siblings and the benefit of latest developments. Some of the members are mere fledglings compared to those who have been soaring high for decades. But together, they make some of the most formidable bastions of education.
