CPS is a manifestation of the vision and passion of
Mr. K.C. Gupta who felt a strong need to build an alternative model of school education in Delhi.
Canterbury Public School is the outcome of the deep aspirations and values of Sh.K.C.Gupta the founder and the Chairman. His vision is to contribute meaningfully towards nation building by creating institutes that nurture children into compassionate and deep thinkers. Children, who have a deep sense of responsibility and will be leaders in their respective fields. In his words, "The purpose of education must coincide with the larger life purpose of those being educated" says Sh. K.C.Gupta The founders have deep faith in the Science of Living, health, value, emotional and spiritual education. It works on the proven relationships between forms of transcendental meditation, yoga and the endocrine system to create individuals who live a balanced life and remain in touch with their own inner being. CPS comes from a desire towards filling a gap in the education landscape of a school, which offers world-class quality. We strive to achieve world-class quality in all whatever we do. Be it curriculum, teacher recruitment & training, or infrastructure. Our reference will be the world and not India alone. We will seek inspiration and ideas from schools and experts across the globe. No doubt these need to be adapted to the Indian context and to the resource constraints.
