Deepalaya School Kalkaji Extention was set up In 1999, with the backing of several investors and in response to an overwhelming demand by the parents for a formal school. DSKE was the first Deepalaya school that was designed from ground up to function as a fully fledged education centre. The campus was equipped with laboratories, playgrounds and an auditorium. It saw students enrolling from nearby slum areas like Okhla, Govindpuri, Transit Camp, Sangam Vihar, Tughlabad Extension, and Madanpur Khadar.
After an enduring and hard fought battle, DSKE also became the first Deepalaya school to get recognition from the Delhi Government and an affiliation from the Central Board of Secondary Education (C.B.S.E) in October, 2008. Today, under the leadership its Pricipal Ms. Meera Jacob, the institute focuses on continuously challenging its students to meet and surpass their capabilities so that they can become skilled members of the society.
