'It is not a disgrace if the dreams are not fulfilled, but it is, if we have no dreams to dream'. Delhi Public School Ghaziabad infuses the child with the spirit of camaraderie, cohesion and competitiveness. Each child is initiated into the house system and is placed in a House and is gradually introduced to the ethos of the institution.
We have seven houses at DPSG, each named after a river. They are -
A river cuts through rocks not because of its power but because of its persistence. 'aut viam inveniam aut faciam' is the motto of the House system at DPSG thereby exemplifying the fact that the sky is the limit in the pursuit of excellence. It means 'I will either find a way or make one...'
Rivers teach us how to keep going with the flow. No matter what comes in its way. One needs determination coupled with aspiration to reach the pinnacle of success and glory.
The students at DPSG believe that challenges are not stumbling blocks but are opportunities to strive harder and confidently march towards the goal. They use their capabilities and perseverance to encourage one another and work together as a team.

One who is put in authority over others and accepts the office of Prefect, undertakes duties that are not always easy to carry out. He must himself strictly obey the rules of the school if he is to see that others also do so. Example counts more than precept. He must not be tempted to court popularity but he can remember that if he does his duty well and fairly, he will win respect, and to be respected is better than to be cheaply popular. A Prefect accepts an office of responsibility, trust and honour. He can do much to make school a good and happy home for all. He is given the highest opportunity that this school offers of preparing himself for the wider life he will enter, when the time comes for him to leave.
Those students who get the honour of being prefects are groomed for handling their new roles in a responsible manner. Their training under the guidance of teachers and professionals aims to inculcate managerial and organizational skills, problem solving skills and good communication. Above all, they are trained to bring out the best within themselves as human beings, to work in teams and to demonstrate exemplary behavior.
