On May 7, 1966, an era began. Luminaries in the DAV College Management Committee (DAVCMC) envisioned a Renaissance-the first DAV co-educational school based on public lines. The idea was novel and the execution, perfect. Since then, for the last fifty years, the school stands out as a true reflection of time-the honored principles of Mahatma Hansraj. Today, with its sprawling campus comprising of Smart Classrooms, well-equipped Computer Labs., a Heritage Centre, a T.T. Hall, a magnificent Auditorium, a Conference Room, lush green lawns, huge playgrounds, a yagyashala and so on, the school stands tall as an embodiment of values, verve and versatility!
With a cheered history of raising the benchmarks and setting standards for the last five decades, the school has contributed immensely in nation building. Hansraj Model School has become the most significant link in the chain of schools started by the DAV College Education Trust. The school has consistently bagged the topmost positions in West Delhi Schools by showcasing its excellence in multifarious disciplines: The Times of India School Ranking at No. 4 in West Delhi, Education World Ranking 3 in Delhi, Capsule School Award for the ‘Best Curriculum’, Award for the ‘Best Hygiene School of the Year’ by Afro Asian Convention, ‘Sahyog Sammaan’, ‘Adarsh Pathshala Puruskar’ and so on. The school has also been in the limelight by its mass involvement in the Mega Event ‘Nayi Disha - Naya Sankalp’, which was graced by the Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Alumni Meet ‘Reunion 2016’ and ‘Smritiyan aur Sankalp’ (a 51 Kundiya Yajna Utsav to mark school’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations) - all speak volumes for the school’s superior quality in education and developing of holistic personalities of its students.
Hansraj Model School’s policy to reach out to the society and facilitate the upliftment of the underprivileged dates back to 1984. The students receive benefits of free schooling, transport, books, uniform and so on. The school has continued the legacy and furthered its community outreach programmes by a number of philanthropic endeavors by visiting the orphanages, old age homes, schools for the blind etc.
The school believes in strengthening young minds by inculcating in them the long lasting values and morals. The daily routine of chanting Gayatri Mantra, soulful singing of hymns, performing of hawan, meditation, prayers, touching feet of elders and teachers have kept alive the Indian tradition and values. The school ambience reverberates with positive vibes and the precious Aryan values have become a way of life.
