I applied, for my son's admission in nursery, in DPS South today (3rd Oct) and registration number is DL-189 (under alumni category). They told that if application is selected then they will contact on / before 10th Oct. Same response was given to everyone.

I have also applied in Kumaran's DSK branch and interview is scheduled on 8th Oct.

From what I get, after going through previous year's discussion, is that in DPS they confirm admission just after the interview and as then ask for payment within 2/3 days.

Kumaran take some time in confirming admission. In the interaction letter they have told that it will be published in mid November!!

My first preference is Kumaran and I have applied to DPS as backup. But now I cannot rule out DPS confirming admission before Kumaran. I am bit worried about this situation. I am from DPS and know for sure this is good school. After comparing the results (only CBSE) and reading the personal opinions of parents and alumni, I am slightly inclined towards Kumaran. But I have very little opinion about sports, extra curricular activities and performance of Class 12 students in various competitive exams. Has any parent got any of these information for these two schools??


suzuka 2013-10-03 17:09:32


@keshavraj & @PraveenRai, thanks for sharing your experience. Still we are waitng for kumaran DKS interview call with little hope. Our DPS Reg.No. is DL140, We submitted on 1st oct .

suzuka 2013-10-03 17:13:51


@PraveeenRai, All the best for your scheduled Kumaran interview.  keep us update.

does ur kid come under sibling or alumni category or is it general?

i honestly feel these branded schools like Ryan, DPS, etc are selling education.
I saw DPS Ahmedabad students in Bournvita Quiz.
They are guessing which country Albert Einstein was from, they guessed russia, america, and some other except Germany.
If the top students in DPS Ahmedabad are in this state, what could be the state of the rest?
These branded education institutions have made money and will sell their names to anyone for money.
they are least interested to even maintain standards like how the sagars in bangalore do for food.
unless you have personal knolwledge from the school and first hand information, i would prefer to stay away from these big brands.!!
my son started Grade-1 in Gopalan National, I would not say it is the top, but I find the teachers very responsive and the head teacher to be a very capable administrator(my inputs after personally speaking),
At the same time, i am not marketing GNS here, just giving first hand information vs brand difference.

@Surya21 - i agree with you, unfortunately education in Blr has become like that - all want to go to these so called Tier-1 schools, but little do we know if they are good or not!!

PraveenRai 2013-10-04 15:05:40


@ Surya21

Education today is a costly affair. But this has its pros and cons of this. Good thing is that most of the teachers, at least in branded school, are paid well also they have surplus to invest in the school infrastructure etc. and invest in scientific methods of learning. If teachers are paid well then better teachers will gravitate towards these school. But it’s the parents who have pay more.


At the same time there is no dearth of schools / educational institutes where fee is reasonable (or less) and some students, certainly not most of them, do very well. In fact they emerge as toppers in most of the competitive examinations. But we need to be careful in passing the praise to such schools. Some students perform better because they and / or parent realized that they have to be more focused in whatever they do â€" education, sports etc. and they do something to supplement what such schools (mostly unheard of schools) lack.


We also need to understand â€" how a brand was established? Is there any real ‘value’ in the brad? Brand is NOT “how many people are aware of a particular brand†but “how many know the brand and appreciate it because of the personal experienceâ€.


I think it will very unfair to generalize one case of ‘DPS Ahmedabad’ student. Maybe the poor fellow didn’t know the place of Birth of Albert Einstein â€" Which I personally don’t think is a great question to judge someone’s intelligence or academic quality. At the same time no one can take the credit out that this kid, yes from ‘DPS Ahmedabad’, made to Bournvita Quiz.


Speaking of quality, I am not saying all DPS schools will equally good or bad. Some will be better than other but one thing I can say for sure is ‘not so good DPS schools’ look up to better performing schools and try to catch up with them. In this post there are more references of DPS because I am from DPS and I know the  value of this brand and appreciate it.


Surya21 2013-10-04 16:53:49


exactly, we are all in the same boat.
we want that to sail not sink.
what i meant is that DPS should ensure that they have the same standard in the mother institution to be everywhere, but they are no longer doing, that is my point.
What I am saying is that :
2 students from DPS in BQC : they should be the best in the school, otherwise the school will not bet their name on them.
These 2 students lack basic knowledge so much that I seriously doubt the quailty of education they received.
Hence I am concluding that all DPS are not the same.
they just want money and are not interested in quality.

Can anyone say the same on valley schools?
No, all valley schools are top rated and the best in the country.

DPS, Ryan are not, dont go by brand names, speak to parents.
Dare the schools to let you meet real parents, or do it for yourself going to the school early in the morning.
as moms as they will know better than dads :-) (kidding)


Surya21 2013-10-04 16:59:20


we get so many things from China.
We compare two plastic toys, one made by Fisher Price in China, another non-branded one, made in China.
they are not the same.
that is where the brand is coming from, ensuring quality.
unfortunately none of the branded schools are doing this.
hence what i say is going for brand in schools is foolishness, go with real data., talk to real parents, kids and then make decisions.

Guys, I agree but it is extremely challenging to get the actual feedback on academic  I applied for DPS South, Kumaran and Presidency,  I visited Orchid International School, BTM second stage/off bannerghatta road as dont want to be dependent on DPS alone, they are starting school till 5th Std this year, will enhance till 8th next year and till 10th std following year. Building yet to be ready, they are renovating some old building of cloth mill. Their plans are impressive , not sure whether these are just plan or they have good history,. Admission fees is nominal,annual fees including all is apx 90 K for nursery, any opinions??

laugh 2013-10-05 00:54:51


annual fees of 90k seems very high to the school really that good!

Pankuj 2013-10-05 19:29:44


Laugh 90 K includes 20 K transportation and 10 K uniform and books.. the plans they shared were impressive but not sure about their history , they have schools in Hyd and Mumb..
