We applied in DPS for my son for grade 4 where in my husband had to travel to India on emergency where I stayed back sInce I had to submit docs for the school anytime but unfortunately my husband couldn't check the mail about the date of registration fees to paid but the very nxt day I went to school to submit ....the registrar and the HR were so rude and arrogant to me though i explained them that my mominlaw was not well and my hubby had to rush to india but they werr stressing only on one point why dint u come on the same day...the staff there in DPS don't have minimum manners or courtesy towards parents ..they were questioning me as though I did some crime or something , at last I told them damn to ur school , I will never ever apply for my son here and they were so cool about it ....I request all parents down go more down beyond your standards and fall on their feet just because it's a good school in sharjah....if our kids are intelligent they will somehow shine in their future , every school has the same syllabus CBSE it is only our kids should put efforts .....
I honestly would have given 0 stars but i can't so im giving 1 star. This school is terrible. The teachers can't even teach properly and most of them don't even know proper english. The school is really terrible. The teachers are unqualified. They will only make your child read the textbooks and make them write the notes. Its a stupid school. If u want your child to go mad then please send her/him to dps sharjah.
If possible, would have rated 0 stars. The teachers in the school are okay, but the partiality that the faculty children get is just too much. For example, I have a friend who is a faculty child. For some reason, after paying nearly 1000 dirhams a year, he got into the morning games (one level below school team kind of). But, I have played the same sport with him. I have spent more than 2000 dirhams on the extra classes and play better than home, but somehow he got into morning games. Also, the English teachers themselves speak in broken English. I still have many friends who say "say you" instead of "tell you". Also, as of now in 9th grade, the teachers just read out and teach the textbook in class, and expect you to do 2 hours of homework, and then maybe attend Tution and then, at last, study. Where is the time for recreation? Where is the time for doing exercises or keeping healthy? God only knows. And, this is not the board's fault. It is definitely the school's fault as it alotts more time revising for exams and giving extra sample papers, practice sheets, revision sheets, etc. Than actual studying and teaching, which is what the board instructs them to do. Also, we can understand lab experimenting, but, after each lab experiment, the school expects you to write a 20 page description of the lab session, 90% of which is completely unknown to us and out of syllabus. Also, the P.E teachers are good for nothing and just stand in the shade and look down at their phone screens and talk, ALL THE TIME. Sure, the ministry loves the school, but that is only because the teachers LITERALLY train us on how to behave when the ministry comes for inspection. Everything during the inspection is as fake as crocodile tears. Also, one of my friends who used to study in GEMS millennium just joined this school and all he has to say his "Man, what terrible school have I joined" everyday. The teachers suck the life out of us and fill us all with negativity and their so called education.
The bottom line is, DPS was a profitable, scamming, unhygienic,unathletic, dull and depressing school. Sometimes, I experience mental breakdowns due to the stress that is put on us and during the exams, I hear my friends talking about suicide as the easy way out, not even exaggerating. I'll be moving to India in 11th. Also, stop comparing this school with Indian schools. There is a HUGE margin in fee structures.
I study in this school. and in my opinion, they're not what they brag around to be. they're useless, the facilities they brag about are RARELY used, like when we're supposed to go every week? nope.... once a year more like. and partiality? staff students and people who are apparently "studious" are given more opportunity over people who truly have talent. useless school, regret still being a part of it. only thing keeping me here are my childhood "friends".
One of the, if not best Indian schools in Sharjah. I understand the frustration of other reviewers. However they are directing their anger of syllabus to the wrong administration. The school just enforces the syllabus provided by the CBSE. PS : We have one of the best green fields out there
I am a student of DPS Sharjah currently studying in grade 12. There are a few things I would like to talk on:
12th grade is not a piece of cake. With the change in the pattern by CBSE it is absolutely necessary that the school gives assignments! If as parents this seems too hectic for your child, then shift your child to an easier curriculum!!
I've been coming across reviews saying primary school is more easier. Uh duh, your child is studying in senior wing now. HE/SHE IS GROWING UP. If as parents you expect the level of studies to be as same as in 5th, sure thing your child will graduate school by when he/she is 24.
I can't explain in words how ill mannered the 6th and 7th graders are. With the absolute support of their parents they think they can boss the senior kids around. The senior kids are bigger in size, but even in the buses the parents have been complaining about students not getting a seat. The juniors enjoy sitting two in a seat and senior students have to cramp up. They don't let the senior students who are stressed out sleep in the bus and go to the extend of throwing our bags on the floor when we are sleeping. They yell out foul language and then how do the parents not expect any cases of bullying?
There was a girl who reported me for bullying when I asked her to move out of my way when I was getting late for my class in biology lab.
Tell me, was I really bullying her? As parents it is your duty to teach kids to stand up for themselves and respect elders..
2) PTP and SUNRISE CLASSES:
The teachers are spending their precious time making worksheets and assignments when they can actually spend it with their own kids. Reason being they wish to help your child come in phase with other students. The assignments consist of HOT questions. Believe me when I say it will actually help your children when they reach 12th if they decide to continue with the curriculum.
As a 12th grader I feel had we been used and had trained our minds earlier on solving HOTS questions, we wouldn't have been struggling now. These classes and assessments are so that train your child as ultimately all that matters is 12th. Doesn't it?
3) EXTRA CURRICULAR
Its a shame but i have to agree that the teachers are quite partial.
I am a student of Dps sharjah and it is like one worst school .I talk alot in class i accept but when teachers correct your paper they discriminate and give good marks to the children she likes amd bad marks to children who she hates. If u go ask the rep any she will be like go back to your class. As I told the class teacher hates me I have really short hair no hairstyle but still she will be like get a haircut.Our hindi teacher will come in class stand for 5/40 minutes and will be like do this on your like she wont make u do anything. The Rep of the grade will taunt u so much that u get a headache. But well all maths teachers are really good. Washrooms suck as heal it stinks like heal. The Cleaners make us clean everything and when ministry inspection is there everything will be good the teachers will teach u good and washrooms are clean , Acs are working and next day all back to the same dirty things. If we have substitution period we cant do our work we have a new thing called 'chat' in which teacher will show u ppt and some shit wasteage of time questions like seriously? Last year dps hired najmat al najah buses they doubled are transportation fees and gave really good buses like they were bomb , but after 2 months they gave us same shit bus in which ac doesnt work propely nor we have black plastic on glass . When it comes to sports selection the staff children will get selected first whatever if they play the worst also. In our school more staff children gets hamdan award thats cuz of their parents teach their. Dont try to give your children admission over here.
Please don't send you're kids to this school. Teachers are liars, treats students depending on their marks. Please don't make the mistake which my parents did, but if you wanna kill your son/daughter just send them here. Dps does all the work.
