D.A.V. Public School, Jasola Vihar, New Delhi is an institution that truly symbolizes the moving and vibrant spirit of D.A.V. movement. It has always been our mission to not only impart knowledge which is necessary, but more importantly to build up in our students, the power of knowledge, to impart that education by which character is formed, the strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one stand on one's own feet. We want our students to be important contributors towards the economic progress, spiritual growth and cultural wholeness of the nation.
From a modest beginning in 1991 with mere 39 students, the school has come a long way.
Today the school has 1800 students on the roll, catering to the educational needs of all sections of the society. It has always been our endeavor to understand the needs of every individual child and plan our strategies to fulfill the needs.
Our students have secured many prestigious positions and prizes in different walks of school life. With a team of dedicated teachers and able guidance of our principal, Dr. V.K. Barthwal our students have always come out with flying colors in academics. So far we had 100% results with many distinctions.
Along with academics, the school teaching incorporates various co-curricular activities including value education. The students are divided into four houses- Alaknanda, Everest, Himalaya and Nilgiri. In addition to the smooth running of all co curricular activities the house system encourages cooperation, healthy competition and leadership among students.
Our teachers have attended workshop on "How to incorporate values in curriculum". To keep abreast with the latest developments and happenings and trends in teaching methodology, our teachers are participants in various seminars, workshops etc. conducted by NCERT and D.A.V. Managing Committee. Our children are motivated to participate in competitive exams Like Science, Maths and Cyber, Biotechnology Olympiads etc. Our students like Akhil Dhapola brought laurels to the school by securing 5th position at the National Level and 2nd rank at the State Level in the 1st National Biotechnology Olympiad.
Our students are active participants in all inter D.A.V. competitions in creative and artistic sphere including annual Anarkali competition. They are also encouraged to participate in campaigns concerning socially relevant issues like contributors to army funds, cancer awareness campaigns etc.

From a modest beginning at Pocket B Sarita Vihar, the school was shifted to a much bigger rented accommodation opposite pocket E and it was accorded an independent status with effect from 1st April 1995 by DAVCMC.
The 2 acres land for the Senior Secondary school was acquired at the adjoining Jasola Vihar and the auspicious "Bhoomi Puja" was solemnized on 30th march, 2003.
