History Of our School

Our D.T.E.A schools have been an important component of Delhis academic life for nearly 90 years. From one teacher one student position under the shades of a tree, the institution has grown into seven large branches distributed in prime localities of Delhi with a student population of over 10,000.D.T.E.A. R.K. Puram , is one of the reputed schools.

D.T.E.A. R.K. Puram was established in 1964 and raised to the level of Higher Secondary School in 1968. Over a span of four and half decades it has matured into a prestigious institution with about 1000 students and dedicated staff. The school can proudly claim for having trained several generations of south Indian students in addition to the students from non-Tamil community, who have grown into distinguished citizens in all walks of life: doctors, beaurocrats, scientists, musicians, artists and other professional's. We also have number of teachers in our team who are ex-students themselves.

Our school originally started with the intention to serve the interests of the then small Tamil speaking community in order to ensure that children keep in touch with not only their mother tongue but also their tradition and culture. Tamil continues to be taught as a compulsory subject till the middle and thereafter it is one of the optional subjects. "Learning is the most valuable and imperishable wealth to a person" quoted Thiruvalluvar. Our school is proud for having bestowed this wealth to many.

The aim of education is not only to achieve intellectual excellence. But also a harmonious development of all aspects of human personality of every individual child. Therefore it is our endeavor to give full opportunity to our students to excel in all the fields such as sports, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, Provision of equal opportunity to all, according to their environments is the demand of the day. Our school Annual events include Teachers day, Children's day, Inter house and Inter-DTEA competitions. Our students participated in various competitions conducted by Delhi Administration & Directorate of Education, and other organizations namely Zonal Sports & Cultural Activities and Zonal Science fairs to name a few. This is to develop a spirit of participation and healthy competition.
