DCS provides an education that enables our students to fulfill their potential – be it social, hollistic intellectual, academic, sporting or cultural. We do so not because these potentials, fully developed, are useful, economically marketable or aesthetically rewarding but because we want every single one of our students to find something that they are good at.
The extensive range of activities on offer in the school enables all our students to find something that they can excel at. In this way they come to an appreciation of their worth as individuals and gain the self-esteem and self-confidence to which we aspire as the hallmark of our passouts.
We recognise that, in a rapidly changing world, few of our students will follow a single career for the whole of their adult lives. To cope with these career changes they will need flexibility of mind and the intellectual curiosity to continue learning well into adulthood.
We espouse a variety of teaching models in order to produce students who can think critically, synthesise and transform, experiment and create. In short, we aim to equip our students for the Digital Centuries ahead. Our teaching methods are thus far removed from the didactic approaches traditional in many countries.
DCS is much more than an orderly environment. Our disciplinary systems, from the day that students enter the school, aim to make them realise that we must all take responsibility for our own actions. This realisation is fundamental to bringing our students to a preference for self-discipline over imposed discipline.
In an increasingly dysfunctional world, we regard values such as responsibility, honesty, courage, loyalty, tolerance and respect for others as the building blocks of a stable society. We do not seek to teach these values, but to organise the school and so conduct ourselves that our children will see the example we are giving and come, bit by bit, to prize and apply these values themselves.
While DCS draws much of its inspiration from international models, it also embraces the Indian perspective. We try to give our students not only an understanding of their own, or host country, but also a valuing of its peoples and its cultural diversity and a willingness to do something for it. We also seek to encourage amongst our students an appreciation of India’s immense richness and variety of natural resources, as well as a commitment to their protection and preservation for future generations. Expeditions to more remote areas and our community service programmes are intended to break down the isolation created by privilege, exposing our students to a reality outside their own experience so that they may learn to cope with unexpected difficulties and mature in the process
