DPS Pune is affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi. The curriculum followed in junior and senior classes is based on NCERT guidelines, albeit with several innovations which are introduced after much research and study.
Till class V the curriculum is theme-based. The idea behind this is to seamlessly integrate various subjects with a common thread which links them to practical aspect of life. This gives our students a holistic view and allows them to apply knowledge and correlate various subjects to real-life situations.
From Class VI, formal subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Political Science are introduced NCERT books are followed in school but the methodology of delivery is unique which has been developed in consultation with leading experts. Lessons are planned so that students get to learn their subjects in a practical manner with a plethora of projects and activities.
From Class IX along with intensive studies, career orientation is introduced so that students can decide their future study options
We have integrated certain programmes that include some important facets of education otherwise ignored these days. These include the Read Programme, Newspeak and SL&SL (Student Leadership & Life Skills). Since we realize the importance of reading and writing in this digital age, the students are encouraged to read more books and articulate their ideas impressively. Similarly, L & TS is aimed at providing students a practical hands-on approach to the real world which awaits them once they step-out of the safe cocoon of the school life. Through L & TS, we strive to instill in our student's leadership qualities and awareness about practical health issues that includes sex education.
These efforts have borne fruits which manifest themselves in the consistently excellent results that have been produced by our students in the Board exams.
