Delhi Public School International, established in 2005, is a name to reckon with, a landmark in every sense of the word and an epitome of good education and discipline.
“IBSE curriculum has propelled India into a Technology, Medicine, Accounting and Engineering power house and its the same world-class very successful curriculum we run on here,” revealed Delhi Public School International Principal.
The school was officially opened in the new campus located at plot No. 17-25,Saddler way, Naguru, Kampala- Uganda on October 31st, 2015 by the then education minister Maj. (Rtd) Jesca Alupo. The school currently has 750 students.
Delhi Public School International (DPS) came about due to the need to have an Indian School in Uganda basically to cater for the massive number of Students who are interested in studying in India and using the Indian curriculum.
Every year, there are 15,000 students who leave Uganda to go to India for studies.Over the years, thousands of Ugandans have studied in Indian colleges and universities, especially in Pune, Bangalore and Delhi.
“The school, is not only for Indians as people might think. It is open to all nationalities.Delhi Public School International was born through the merger of two different schools– Indian School of Uganda and the Delhi Public International School” Stated one Parent.
With the acquisition of the Indian School of Uganda, this leaves Delhi Public School as the only institution using the Indian curriculum in Uganda.
Talking about the IBSE school’s curriculum, the school’s Principal Mary Jacobs says, IBSE curriculum, has evolved through thousands of years into what it is today.
“At Delhi Public School International, we focus on complete development of our students by involving them in both scholastic & co-scholastic activities as suggested by CBSE. I am sure this will help our children to realize, understand & explore their talents. In order to do this, the parents and the school authorities must work together to inculcate certain values in the students. “Sound body has a Sound Mind.” Let us allow our children to develop physically & mentally. Children learn alot of values when they are involved in Sports & Games. Some of these life skills & values cannot be taught in the classroom or at home. DPSI provides enough opportunities for the children to participate in Sports & games” according to the School Principal.
Today at DPS, the school has students from Uganda, Zimbabwe, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan, India, Philippines and China among other countries.
