The DPS curriculum supports the natural development of the child. The teacher serves less as an instructor and more as a guide or facilitator. Children are encouraged to learn how to learn, thus gaining independence and self – confidence.
A Proven Curriculum
DPS ARA follows the syllabus as prescribed by the CBSE. It will be our constant endeavour to direct each child to become a motivated lifelong learner by experiencing the joy of discovery and the ownership of results. Our curriculum has been structured to ensure that knowledge is imparted through a combination of resources and techniques, thus making the learning process exciting and easy to comprehend. Classroom teaching, multi – media workshops, exchange programmes, co – curricular activities and excursions help children gain insight and knowledge at various levels.

With the school affiliated to the CBSE, it became mandatory for us to follow the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation CCE. CCE helps in improving students; performance by identifying his/her learning difficulties and abilities at regular time intervals right from the beginning of the academic session. A step in this direction was the introduction of Cyclic Tests conducted on every Tuesday to help teachers understand the students and develop corrective and remedial measures. Every afternoon the school provides for remedial teaching where in children who lag in certain subjects will be provided extra attention. The school offers English as the first language, Hindi as the second language and Marathi as third language, Mathematics, Science and Social Science for classes I- III. For classes IV- VIII English is the first language, Hindi the Second language and the students have to choose either Hindi or Sanskrit as the third Language.
