MD Dayanand Model School, Nakodar, was established in 1975 under the guidance of the chairman of the DAV institutions 'Mr. Bhim Sen Mehra'. The land for the school was donated by 'Mahendru family' in the memory of their mother Mrs. Malavi Devi. We are proud of our graceful history and academic tradition. At the same time, we are unique in the way we have been abreast with the new trends in education and have responded to the changing needs of times. The school is not just another glorious link in the chain of DAV Schools but it is in itself on a mission to provide quality education. Today, it is considered one of the finest institutions in the Area. It has constantly maintained high standards year after year. Our scholastic programme is designed to foster excellence. The School endeavours to help its students achieve their true potential not merely in intellectual understanding, but also in aesthetic sensitivity, physical well-being and moral decisiveness, so that they can establish themselves to be productive and responsible human beings. Education is derived from a Latin word that means to 'bring out.' Our philosophy onEducation is very simple- 'to draw out of the child the gift of intelligence'- by creating an atmosphere where inquiry and interest can be stimulated by instilling confidence in a child to believe in himself or herself. Developing curiosity, awareness and harmony, and enhancing creative and critical intelligence the children are helped to be the valued citizens of tomorrow.- This motivation guides the DMS. We believe that evaluation should support learning so that we are able to produce future builders. In the process, we feel that innovation and creativity must not be stifled at any cost. However we also need to set high standards for them as well as present ourselves to be accountable for them. School like ours does not promote mere passing academic exams but also focuses upon probing ideas, knowledge and understanding and ultimately the pursuit of truth. My fervent plea to all students is to savor their every minute in the portals of this school, be proud, keep a sense of proportion, have a questioning mind and live life to its fullest. I hope that you all will enjoy this privileged time at DMS. We cherish ideals of academic excellence, sense of duty and responsibility, leadership qualities, initiative, self-motivation, a high moral character and a sense of discipline. To imbue all these qualities in students, our efforts appear stringent to some but effective and logical to most. The school which stands reputed today is due to the selfless and dedicated services of the entire staff.
