Bal Bharati Public School (BBPS) ranks high among the premier progressive schools in the country.

The school spread over 6 acres (24,000 m2) of prime land, is housed in two wings one at Pitampura and the other at Ganga Ram Hospital Marg. It is today one of the most distinguished members of the child Education Society and has played a pivotal role in setting up other Bal Bharati Schools at the national level.
