Promoted in 1988 by the Shanti Devi Progressive Education Society — a trust constituted by Shri Bikramjit Ahluwalia, chairperson and MD of Ahlcon Contracts — with the objective to provide affordable quality education to the educationally deprived children of East Delhi. The CBSE-affiliated coeducational K-12 Ahlcon Public School (APS) has evolved into a 21st century school, under the able guidance of Mr. Vikaas Ahluwalia (Chairman) and Dr. Ashok Pandey (Director), offering a unique blend of academic, co-curricular, sports and life-skills education to its 3,000 students mentored by 180 well-qualified teachers on its musters.
In the EducationWorld India School Rankings 2019-20, APS was ranked among the Top 5 co-ed day schools in East Delhi and rated #1 under the parameters of sports education and community service, #2 under infrastructure provision and #3 under academic reputation and internationalism.
Sited on a 3.5-acre campus in the Mayur Vihar suburb of East Delhi, APS is a member of the National Progressive Schools Conference (estb. 1973) and was recently conferred the British Council’s International School Award (ISA) for 2019-22, the Green School Award and Fit India certification from Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India.
The APS campus hosts three academic blocks housing 62 ICT-enabled classrooms, 11 fully-equipped laboratories (physics, chemistry, biology mathematics, robotics and computer science) including an Atal Tinkering lab and also two libraries (one each for the junior and senior sections) stocked with 25,000 volumes and a 600-seat indoor auditorium and activity rooms for music, dance, drama, home science and yoga.
As testified by their #1 rating under the parameter of sports education among co-ed schools in East Delhi, one-third of the school campus is dedicated to open playing grounds with excellent facilities for basketball, football, table-tennis, badminton, cricket, chess, carom, shot-put and athletics. The school also offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities including music, dance, yoga, creative art, drama, home science and encourages over 15 club activities. In line with its green initiatives, APS has adopted a DDA park and students of Eco Club regularly visit and maintain the Sam.
The consistent and dedicated efforts of the teachers and management of APS have paid rich dividends. In 2019, 90 of the 274 students who wrote the class XII CBSE board exams and 67 of the 199 students who wrote the class X CBSE board exams, scored 90 percent and above aggregate Mark’s.
Unsurprisingly APS graduates are readily accepted into national (IITs, IIMs, AIIMS, etc.) and international( Stanford, Westminster, Cambridge) higher education institutions. Among the school’s well-known alumni are radio jockey Anmol Sood, Naina Karol (Deputy Director of Income Tax), Meenakshi Midha(Advocate), Ankit Kumar (Indian Forest Services officer), among others.
