About the School
At the time of establishment in 1995, Doon Public School had the status of a middle school. By maintaining its missionary zeal and progressive outlook, it got NOC from state government in the year 2000 and rose to the level of CBSE- affiliated Secondary School in the year 2003(provisional).Today as a result of uninterrupted upward march it is a Senior Secondary School affiliated upto 2015 with the vast diversity of subjects in Arts, Commerce and Science streams. CBSE has graded the school as A New Generation School. To say the least, it is all due to its founder society, namely, the Doon Public School Education Society (Regd.), which created the school with the sole objective of imparting quality education at affordable cost.
The school is located in Sector-21, Panchkula. It has a beautiful building spread in 2.039 acres(8523 sq.mtrs with a built up area 7704 sq. mtrs approx.) with spacious playgrounds 4032 sq. mtrs, plush landscaped lawns, dotted with plants, ferns and petals that give to the building a scenic environment which soothes the nerves and de-stresses the mind. Situated at the Shivalik foothills, the distance from the school to Chandigarh is just 7 km, while it is only 5 km away from Pinjore and Zirakpur. Ambala- Kalka – Shimla highway happens to be just within a stone’s throw.
At Doon Public School, we are always open to change. The management of the school inspires the staff, the students and the parents to accept change as an irrefutable law of nature. So we are perpetually innovative.
We continuously update our knowledge, skills and attitudes and upgrade our infrastructure.
As a parent-friendly school, we offer fee concessions and scholarships to a number of students and to keep ourselves aligned with the community, we organise free health camps for the general public with the help of renowned specialists from prestigious hospitals.
Needless to say that we cannot accomplish these and the other activities stated above without the encouragement and cooperation of our management, various educational authorities, the staff, the parents and the students. So we always feel beholden to them and hope that their blessings, guidance, cooperation and good wishes will always remain available to us.
"Lead Kindly Light" is the motto of the school. It is a fragment of the first line of an inspiring poem written by Cardinal Henry Newman (1801-90). Newman believed that the soul of man is continuously unfolding itself. Its final manifestation is very distant. What man can do is to take one step at a time and that, too, with the benevolent and illuminating assistance of God.
Rendering of enlightened leadership being a major component of our motto, we don't stick to obsolete ways. Ours is an ever-widening horizon, embracing the eternal past, the refreshing present and the alluring future. We believe that there is no escape from such synthesis.
