Built on the reputation of the Delhi Public School – one of the largest chains of private schools in India – DPS has an old but large and well-equipped campus in Hougang with plenty of outdoor space. All students follow the Indian curriculum until Grade 7, when the decision to opt for the ICSE or IGCSE is based on a joint decision by the school and the parents.

DPS is the only international school in Singapore to offer the ICSE curriculum rather than CBSE; this is based on the school’s belief that students with an “exposure to a comprehensive ICSE programme will certainly have an edge over other students”.

As well as offering students the choice of Indian and UK curricula, DPS has a decent choice of after-school activities.
