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.
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.
“IBSE curriculum has propelled India into a Technology, Medicine, Accounting and Engineering power house,” revealed Mary Jacobs.
Today at DPS, the school has students from Uganda, Zimbabwe, Sudan, India, Philippines and China among other countries.
The Ruparelia Group started Delhi Public School International early this year, adding it to the chain of their education institutions in the country.
The acquisition of Delhi Public School International, added to his investments in education which include Kampala Parents School (2004), Kampala International School of Uganda (KISU) and Victoria University.
Delhi Public School was officially opened Saturday, October 31, 2015 by the then Education minister Maj. (Rtd) Jessica Alupo. With the number of schools opened under the Ruparelia Group of companies, including the Kindergarten, Primary and the University, it proves that like him other investors have taken advantage of our liberalization policy. Within a short time, there are now 900 pupils at DPS International. This proves that Investors are collaborating well with Government to provide world class education.
Over the years, thousands of Ugandans have studied in Indian Schools, Colleges and Universities, especially in Pune, Bangalore, Bhopal and Delhi.
