Established in the year 1981, Darbari Lal DAV Model School has evolved as an ideal progressive quality institution blending the best of modernity with the best of tradition.
The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education and itís a member of the National Progressive Schools Conference. It is managed by DAV College Managing Committee. It is a co-educational school with English as the medium of instruction.
Over the years the school has created a niche for itself in academics, sports and co-curricular activities by establishing new benchmarks.
Darbari Lal DAV Model School, Pitampura is a part of the evolutionary DAV Dayanand Anglo Vedic Movement - a movement with the mission to impart quality education. The foundation stone of DAV, Pitampura , was laid in the presence of DAV bigwigs Late Shri Ved Vyas ji , chairman, DAV College managing Committee, Late Mr. Darbari Lal ji, the visionary founder manager of the School, Mrs. S.L. Makhija the founder Principal and many others on 12th May 1981. It was a moment of great pride when, in 1987-88, the first 10th class batch passed out and, in 1989-90, with mingled feelings of joy and sorrow, the school bid farewell to its first batch of class 12th.
The school has come a long way since then, with three buildings, 4500 students on roll, a dedicated staff of 250 members. It has a fully computerized office, a well-stocked library, a spacious conference room and well equipped laboratories and gymnasium.The school's mission has been to impart education that is "life sustaining and character building". The school follows the tenets of Swami Vivekanand who said, "If you have assimilated fine ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library." The school aims to provide an all-round, wholesome education to its students, thereby preparing them to meet the requirements of our future society. Also, DLDAV Pitampura endeavours to instil in its students a love for Indian culture, customs and traditions. The school believes in bringing together the best of eastern philosophy and western science coupled with Vedanta. It imparts education that builds character and strength of mind and stretches the intellect. To incorporate this, right at the beginner's level, the EEDP i.e., Early Education Development Programme, has been initiated. The highlight of this programme is a system of learning in which phonetics, numbers and concepts of science are taught creatively. The school has classes right from the play centre/nursery to class XII. These classes are divided into the Primary, Middle and Senior wings, which are housed in three separate buildings.
The DAV College Trust Management Society is now the Biggest Non-Government Educational Organisation in India. This has been made possible by the herculean efforts made by great personalities like Mahatma Hans Raj, Principal Mehr Chand Lala Balraj, Dr. G.L. Dutta, Lala Suraj Bhan, Prof. Veda Vyas, Shri Darbari Lal, Shri T.R. Tuli. and many other visionaries
Curriculum & Evaluation
