Students coming from International Schools using the CBSE or other internationally recognized curriculum will be placed according to previous level or class – provided this does not place a student more than one year above or below their normal cohort.
Students wishing to enter DPS International Kampala (except KG section) must have sufficient use and knowledge of English (both spoken and written) to enable them to fully participate in all class activities. Failure to meet this criteria/level may, however, result in a student being offered a place in the class lower to his/her eligibility, if appropriate.
Students wishing to enter Class 9 and above must provide written evidence of academic attainment at CBSE level or must produce equivalency certificate /letter from the school / Board the child was continuing his/her education with.
New students may not be accepted into Years 10 or 12, unless they have previously studied the same courses as offered at DPS INTL, and have the appropriate course-work completed to allow them to meet the expectations of their course (CBSE) without the need to ‘catch-up’ on missed work.
Direct Admissions granted to a child to class X and XII including Transfer cases or coming from any other Board are completely provisional till the approval is received from the Board (CBSE). School will not be responsible for if the case is rejected by the board. As soon as the rejection letter is received the admission of the child will be cancelled and child will not be allowed to attend the classes with immediate effect.
FOR THE CHALLENGED CANDIDATES
DPS Kampala encourages education for all children irrespective of their caste, creed, religion, color and country. But as of now we are not equipped with special methodology for the challenged children, we humbly request the parents not to apply for the admission till we have equipped with such facility. If, in spite of the limitations such children are incorporated into our system the school cannot be held responsible in case of their lack of adaptability, deficiencies, in the art of comprehension, failure to meet the required academic standards and inevitable constraints in the part of holistic development.
