New Era Public School, in Mayapuri, India, was founded in 1960 by the New Era Education Society in Delhi. The project of Mr. R.L.Chopra and Mrs. Usha Chopra came into existence in 1965.

The school is an All India Senior Secondary school, affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education and recognised by the Directorate of Education.

The dream project of Mr. R.L. Chopra and Mrs. Usha Chopra came into existence in one room, in the year 1960. The beginnings were modest, the goals were big. The aim was to design an institution which would in future become a beacon for excellence in education. 50 years on, as we look back, we are inspired yet again by the success story of a couple who dared to dream and work towards fulfilling that “vision” of an institution which has moulded thousands of lives and will continue to do so.

The school organises the annual Saraswati Memorial Quiz Festival, an event involving the participation of Delhi's top schools for 16 events over a period of 3 days. The school holds Qriosity, a large Inter School Quiz Festival in Delhi and SYNC, an Inter School IT symposium.
