DPSSV is an institution, boasting of a positive environment, which largely includes the following:
A safe and caring social climate in which all the students feel welcomed and valued, and nurture a sense of belongingness. A prolific intellectual climate, in which all the students are inspired and motivated to put in their best efforts and to achieve a work of quality. This is supported by a rich, rigorous, and engaging curriculum and a powerful pedagogy for teaching it. All the school members are accountable to the rules and policies for high standards of learning and behaviour. Traditions and routines are built from shared values, that honour and reinforce the school,s academic and social standards. Staff and students share the responsibility for solving problems and making decisions. Effective partnership with parents to support students' learning and character growth. Norms and practices for relationships and behaviour that create a professional culture of excellence and ethics. Mistakes are not perceived as failures, rather as opportunities to learn and grow. Constructive and well intentioned criticism is promoted to help the institution grow further. Equal distribution of educational resources and learning opportunities, amongst the students, irrespective of their socio - economic status. Creating and celebrating the events and educational experiences that honour and celebrate the racialk, ethnic, and linguistic diversity of the students.
We, at DPSSV, strongly believe in the fact that without a school culture that is conducive to improvement and growth, reforms become exponentially difficult. To surge ahead on the holistic mission of education, a positive school culture becomes extremely imperative. We strive to inculcate in our learners, 21st century skills, such as creativity, problem solving, teamwork, respect for diversity, ethical decision making, and commitment to human rights and social justice.
