At DPS Kampala the curriculum of all the academic subjects as well as a variety of co-curricular activities encourages creativity, aesthetics and adventure.
All students study English, Hindi, Mathematics, EVS/Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies (History, Civics and Geography) and an optional language (French). Co-curricular activities include Socially Useful & Productive Work (Art, Music, Dance, Science Club, Eco Club, Astronomy Club, and Literary Club), Physical and Health Education and Computer Education.

The school has implemented the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (C.C.E.) in  all the classes, CCE scheme envisages that every learner is to be evaluated over the entire period of learning schedule rather than a one-slot three hour examination at the end of a course of learning.
The C.B.S.E., through C.C.E. is aiming at a system of evaluation which does not just mean measurement of the level of learning outcomes but more so an approach for further improving the system. It needs to be diagnostic and formative in nature to provide remedial help to the students. We hope that with the cooperation and support of the parents, we shall be able to make a success of this system which is a path-breaking initiative taken by the C.B.S.E. to aspire for holistic development of the students in a conducive environment.

As per CCE there are two types of Assessments: - Formative & Summative. The formative assessments in each semester will comprise of Written tests, activities, oral assessments, quizzes, debates, projects, etc These assessments are to be carried out to provide continuous feedback to both the teachers and the learners to take decisions regarding appropriate modifications in the transactional procedures and learning activities.

The teaching of all the subjects is done using the Smart boards. This makes learning a joyful experience for students.
The summative assessment which is a pen and paper examination carried out at the end of each Semester, measures or 'sums up' how much a student has learnt from the prescribed course. Evaluation of the Scholastic Aspect will be conducted according to the C.B.S.E. guidelines which are tabulated below:
