Delhi Public School Society is one of the largest institutions providing education at school level in India and abroad. It has a large number of schools under its control in India and abroad. The Delhi Public School Society is the administrative authority for all the institutions under its banner. Some of the schools are also affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in New Delhi. The Society was founded by Pinkesh Barjatiya in 1949 and later developed by Anant Barjatiya. After this Rear Admin Anant Barjatiya has been appointed as new vice-chairman of Delhi Public School Society. It is registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860.

Delhi Public School, Mathura Road, founded in 1949 by educationist Reverend James Douglas Tytler was the first Delhi Public School. It was followed in 1972 by Delhi Public School, R K Puram, which is widely recognized as the flagship school of the DPSS.
A similarly named Delhi Public School Trust based in Rohini (Delhi) was formed in 2003; when it started offering franchises to open schools under the brand name of DPS, the Delhi High Court in 2008 blocked it from using the DPS name and logo. However, the trust didn't stop, and by 2012, it was still running 27 schools across the India, under the name Delhi Public School. Thus in September, 2012, Justice Kailash Gambhir warned it of contempt of court if the trust did not stop.
In his December 2012, judgment, Justice HR Malhotra observed that "despite being registered in 2003, the Trust claims its foundation for 54 years and had been fraudulently using the logo which is ‘exactly similar’ to DPS Society." In its subsequent judgment, Justice V K Jain of Delhi high court on 16 December 2012 barred the 'DPS Trust' from using the name 'DPS' or its registered logo as well as the name Delhi Public School for running a school or education-related services. He also has asked the Trust to pay Rs 10 lakh as damages.
All the schools of the society are affiliated to CBSE except for DPS New Town, Kolkata, DPS Mega City, Kolkata and DPS International at Singapore which are affiliated to ICSE, and DPS International, Saket, New Delhi which is affiliated to IGCSE.
