The Four Houses
DPS Whitefield has four houses namely Phoenix, Orion, Pegasus and Polaris. These are names of different constellation. Symbolically, these names have been selected keeping in view the school motto “Reaching for the Stars”. However, there also lies a deeper relevance to each name.

Phoenix – Red House
According to legends, Phoenix was supposed to be the largest of the twelve constellations in the southern sky. Just like the constellation, the house is also named after the mythical bird phoenix. A phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. The members of the Phoenix house represent this aspect of reinventing and rising every time with renewed vigour and vibrancy.
