I have posted this in another discussion, a lot of posters have been put up near Kadugodi, Whitefield, ITPL area for this school - DPS,Whitefield. As Prabha has mentioned Admissions are open from Nursery to Vth standard. Contact numbers are also mentioned on the posters.
pl find the contact nos of the school.. looks like today/tomorrow is last date for submission

Thanks Prabha & amrutha
I tried to cotnact them , nobody is picking the calls .
I am still surprised that how come DPS starts new branch without informing through their website . Anyway i sent them one mail and any feed back i will update u all.
A friend of mine called their delhi office and news is correct. They are suppose to advertise admission in all major news-paper very soon. I hope this is going to be a very option for most of parents as DPS is good academic and sports wise. They give special coaching for IIT 8'th std onwards.
Only hitch is 40 students in a class.
I also tried calling their Delhi number from site dpsfamily.org
The lady confirmed that they are opening the whitefield branch but admissions are not on as yet as it is still in pipeline
Pls let me know if you have more information
Just want to know whether we can go ahead with this DPS,bcoz it is very new and still dont know much abt the teaching style and the mgmt.
Is it worth to give a try just by going by the brand name?
Pls give ur thoughts.
All,I have also rcvd the application form and suppose to submit it by tomorrow.
I called their head office at Tel: ( +91-80 ) 2657 0314 number and they said that they have no plans to open any new branch in Whitefield. DPS has no relation with the hoarding next to Big Bazaar, whitefield.
Not sure how true this information is. Is there a way we can check on the above numbers whether it is affiliated with the same DPS for which they have East, North and South branches?
Even I called Bangalore headoffice, they said they are not opening branch in whitefield. I called DPS Delhi, they say they are starting it. They mentioned there is no website as of now.
Did anyone visit the school in Borewell road, Whitefield?
I just spoke with the Director of the school at 9980101353 and she will be sending me the forms on my email. Its actually a different franchise of DPS and not related to the other 3 schools of DPS in any way. When I was in Delhi I saw the same kind of school as DPS Vasundhara, Ghaziabad which was not related to the DPS RK Puram, New Delhi or Noida. Was a totally different school.
Let me get the admission form on the email and I need to send back with the details asked by this weekend. Post that they will start calling people for the admission/interview. This school is till 5th STD only so far.
Even i called their Delhi Number , they said they are starting the new branch at whitefield . When i asked her why it is not included in the website , the lady picked up the phone got angry and told it will take time. But the DPS office in Bangalore said they had no connection with the new school and it is under separate board
How 2 different schools can run with the same name DPS ???? .
Initially it will be Junir school and will be in a temporary premises in off borewell road and later ( they said june 2012 ) will be shifted to new campus which plans to be near the proposed outer ring road , 13 km from Hope farm circle . I don't how much will work out . I felt they have not yet acquired the land , everything is in papers only.
I had another same experience with Bethany High school . They said a new school called Bethany Junior school currently in SOnyworld , Koramangala and later will be shifted to Dommasandra which may take 2 -3 yrs of time . I personally went and checked. I came back without buying the application form !!!!!
WE have to think seriously before going to these ' super branded schools '
DPS-WHITEFIELD YES I HAD CALLED THEM AND EVEN GOT THE APPLICATION FORM......IF ANYBODY NEED MORE INFORMATION,I PLAN TO VISIT.. ANYBODY WANTS TO ACCOMPANY CAN DO SO.
I am also planning to go .. I will be going from Sarjapur ORR
Very nice information provided MrsArun. Its very strange how can u use such a brand name of DPS without having your own website & proper information distributed to the public. Moreoever the info given from the head office at Bangalore & Delhi is contradictory.
The fee structure is same as original DPS however they dont have their own building & dont know by when it will be ready..its just tentative.
Lets do some more home work before we actually pay some amount to book a seat for our ward. Pls keep sharing more info as n when u get.
I went to see the temp set up ,it is just big house and nothing is there(No school set up as of now).The Dir of the school is too courteous and answering all the questions.The permanent set up is still not ready and i dont know how long it will take.
The temp set up will be like more of pre school than a full fledged school.
To me it looks like it will take more than year to look like proper school and DPS student teacher ratio is very bad.
Still thinking whether to give it a try as it is DPS?
I had been told that they will start interaction from nextmonday ( !%th Nov ) onwards. Director of the school is really courteous . But she is very busy and she has no time to answer all the questions aksed over phone. She told that we can clear all doubts on the interaction day .
Since the Delhi office agreed , this school will defenitely under their managment , but run by another board. I am worried about the infrastructure ,atleast till the main campus is ready, which may take 2-3 yrs. On the interaction day we may ask some questions like
1) Temprary premises : what all facilities ??? student - teacher ratio ??
2) Permanent campus :- exact location ? land aquisition over or still in papers ? how long it will take for the completion of infrstructure ?
Any suggestions or more questions are welcomed
-She was not able to tell the exact location of the permnanet one.We need to chk the correct address and should go and have a look.
- We need to chk how can she accomadate classes till Std V in such small place.
Even I have received the admission form. Can anybody tell me where is the temporary premises? Where is Borell road in whitefield? I am planning to check out the premises 2morrow,Are you guys sure that this branch is not having any relation with the DPS delhi? Any info regarding this will be helpful
Dear Teju & MrsArun,
Yes you are right that the Director of the school Mrs. Rebecca is very courteous. Also I have spoken with one more lady (working as an external consultant) and she was very courteous too and given me all the details over the phone. They have some fantastic plans going forward from 2012 in the new campus. She said that they have acquired 20 acres of land and want to make this school an ultimate place for developing sports person. She also said that they have some plans to hire or consult Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi for sports promotion. Also she is going to have Kiram Majumdar & Nandan Nilekani as advisors & they will be regular visitors to the school to interact with the kids and make them aware of the corporate world. She also emphasized on that this school will be a direct path to IIM & IITs. Felt good after hearing all this.
I also checked with Delhi head office http://www.dpsfamily.org/ +91-11-43126700 and they agreed that this Whitefield school is associated with them. Looks like a good deal if everything said above is true. However the concern is that if the temp school will be able to live upto expectations in terms of DPS brand name? Moreover they need to do a lot of work in that temp building to give a shape of the school.
Rest we can cover once we have the interaction with them in person. Please do keep us posted about the interaction date and time. I have submitted the form today.
U got the form through courier or u submitted the form u got in email.
I submitted the form I got on email however Mrs. Rebecca assigned a admission form number to have it recorded. Without this number the form is useless. If you are getting a hard copy of the form by courier I hope that the admission form number is printed on the form itself.
It sounds interesting.... but for next one year how they will manage in that temp location. I am planning to go tomorrow there and check. I will be going from Domlur, If someone else is going from nearby locations ...do let me know ..we can go together...that way it will be easy to locate ...
I too receive the form thru email and I need to submit the form tomorrow. Can someone tell me where is the school exactly.
Though DPS is a trusted brand but I am just wondering where in city limit they will get 20 acre land and if they go outside, next area to whitefield is sarjapur rd where DPS east is already there. Whatever its is, It going to create good compeition for schools like i.e deens , vibgyor etc which are charging hefty money from parents.
What is the procedure to get the APPLICATION FORM in mail.
IF every body calls the Director and ask her to send the FORM in mail .. then she will be pissed off after some time.
They say that this school will be run by Praxy Fernandes Memorial Trust. Does anybody have any information on this trust.
Hello Neelam - Did you get a chance to visit the school today? If yes pls share your feedback.
SSG - It appears to me but not sure that they are going to come up with this 20 acres land towards Hoskote side. You go from Hope Farm to Hoskote junction via Sai Ashram..Not sure about the exact location but thats what my guess is based on the info I got. Need to confirm from them.
Anirban - U can call her no issues. Or u can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org pls be quick..not sure when they will close accepting the forms..as per them last date was 12th Nov.
Skishor- No idea boss.
Hello abhinkoi, I didn't visit the school. Came to know that permanant location will be around 23-25 kms from Marathalli junction, so droped that school from my list. Its too far for a small kid to travel...
Are you sure about the distance from the marathahalli ? If its 23-25kms, then I also need to seriously think about it. Anyway, I have received call from DPS E for interview.Any update rergardind DPS E?
Yes distance from marthahalli will be 22+ as from hope farm it's 13km as per the them.
As Interviews are going to start frm 15th Nov, does anybody got the call from school?.
