In the modern times when the moral values are being fast eroded away in face of invasion by the materialistic attitude and commercial approach to life which leads only to dissatisfaction, rat race and depression. D.A.V. Public School Puri Road is doing a sterling job of anchoring the youngsters firmly on to their age - old Vedic traditions through chanting of Vedic Mantras daily in the morning assembly, encouraging the children to perform Havana as per the Vedic rites, teaching the age - old Hindu traditions and customs of paying respect by touching the feet of elders & respected ones. Moral Education is an integral part of the school curriculum. Honesty & truthfulness is appreciated & generously rewarded. All these efforts transform young minds into strong and stable characters.

The vision of a powerful and enlightened India had been conceived by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati (1824-1883). He devoted his whole life to awaken the ignorant, illiterate masses of this country. He knew that it could be possible only through education and literacy. The vision and philosophy of the fearless reformer, Maharshi Dayanand, was given a practical shape by Mahatma Hans Raj, who led the educational renaissance in India. As his most important legacy, the Mahatma left behind a pragmatic and enlightened approach to education. One aspect of his approach was his choice of English- oriented Science-based education with a blend of Vedic values. Another was the great emphasis he laid on women education.
The DAV vision of education telescopes well with the National Policy on Education (1986) which lays great emphasis on developing a national system of education, with Education For All, keeping in mind the elimination of disparities in the educational system and provision of more facilities through qualitative interventions, empowerment of women, access to education to disadvantaged sections of the society, educationally backward minorities and the disabled. It also calls for greater rigour and discipline in academic pursuits, autonomy and accountability, experimentation and innovation and nurture excellence and modernization of processes at different levels of education.
Environmental issues like the reduction of pollution and sustenance of the environment have also been taken up by D.A.V. Public School Puri Road. Several projects like van-mahotsav, ‘’say no to poly-bags’ campaign, ‘say no to fire crackers’ campaign, water-conservation and anti-pollution drives are regularly carried out by the DAV School in order to create awareness not only among the students but the whole community. Our students have carried out sanitation and cleanliness drives in the school neighbourhood also.
