Divisional Public School and College (DPS or DPSC), established in 1963, is a prestigious series of mega-schools at the division level in Punjab, Pakistan. They are selective schools. The scheme of Divisional Public Schools was initiated in 1958-59, when the “Sharif Commission”, a special commission on national education for secondary education submitted detailed recommendations on primary through post-graduate education.
Such institutions were named Divisional Public Schools; the funds required to initiate their operation and maintenance were to be generated through private philanthropy.
All the Divisional Public Schools are the offshoots of this plan and owe their existence to the recommendations of the Sharif Commission. The first two Schools were simultaneously built in Faisalabad and Model Town, Lahore in 1963. Later, such schools were established in Sahiwal, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi and Dera Ghazi Khan.
Divisional Public Schools are the largest schools regarding their area in almost all cities except Lahore where Aitchison College is largest.
Divisional Commissioners are generally the chairmen of BOG of Divisional Public Schools. DPSC shamsabad is adjacent to Sanatzar. Source Junaid sultan producer ptv news
