DPS Sharjah, or more officially Delhi Private School, Sharjah is regarded as one of the best Indian curriculum schools in the UAE, and is a branch of one of the best Indian schools in India itself – Delhi Public School, New Delhi.

Delhi Private School is older than its Dubai counterpart (this year ranked ‘Very Good’ by the KHDA), and was established in 2000. According to parents and students who attend the Sharjah school, it comes closer to achieving the successes of its parent school in India.

In 2016 out of a total of 407 students who took the examination, 25 per cent secured an impressive 10 CGPA, while 58 percent scored a CGPA of 9 and above. In all, the DPS-Sharjah school average for 2016 was a CGPA 9 with a 100 per cent pass percentage.

In 2014, DPS Sharjah recorded a 100 percent pass rate for its Grade 12, with all 284 students who sat the CBSE examinations successful (Source: Emirates Today). This, however, is not uncommon in the CBSE exams. In 2012, DPS Sharjah also achieved “100 per cent results” for Grade 10, with 23 per cent students acquiring a CGPA of 10 with a grading of A1 in all the subjects. 85 per cent students registered a CGPA of 8 and above, while all 338 students who took the CBSE examinations passed with a 1st Division. (Source Gulf News). In 2011, 269 students appeared for the exam. Forty-seven students secured a CGPA of 10. 129 students secured a CGPA of above 9.  The 17.5 percent of students securing a CGPA of 10 compared to 2 per cent of students in 2010. (Source KT).

Results like these have given DPS Sharjah a strong reputation among its particular market – parents seeking a high quality, high scoring Indian based curriculum school for their children that in large part they hope are headed for tertiary education in a top tier Indian university.

Aside academic performance, Delhi Private School Sharjah also seems very keen on sports, with a particular strength in cricket, as well as in drama.

Rather like the New Delhi school, many Indian parents actively target DPS Sharjah. As a result admission is not axiomatic. The school is selective, and an entrance examination is required.
