In Grades 9 to 12, we focus on strengthening students’ intellectual, aesthetic, physical, and cultural growth. We facilitate a smooth transition into adolescence through comprehensive and value-added education. Our secondary and senior secondary levels place a clear emphasis on preparing students for the Grade 10 and 12 Board Examinations. We support and encourage students to strive for academic excellence by providing remedial classes and career counseling sessions on a regular basis.
The academic year at DMIS consists of two terms*, with fee payments conveniently divided into three installments. The first term commences in April and continues until September, while the second term runs from October to the end of March. We are committed to following the guidelines stipulated by the CBSE.
We offer a range of language options, including Hindi, Arabic, Malayalam, Tamil, and French as a second language. Changes to the chosen language during the academic year are not permitted. Requests for language changes can only be made in writing to the Registrar at the end of the academic year. Such changes will only be made after a written assessment, in which the child must attain a minimum score of 50%. Requests for changes to the second language are only acceptable until Grade 6. Changes to the third language are not allowed separately. However, if a student changes their second language with eligibility, their former second language will automatically become their new third language.
Our school offers a unique Day Boarding system for Grade 3 to 8. The system includes academic classes in the morning, followed by lunch and an Afternoon Scholastic Improvement Programme (ASIP). ASIP comprises supervised study sessions and co-curricular activities.
The school administration, under the guidance of senior leadership, has made the decision to transition from the Afternoon Self Improvement Programme to the Afternoon Scholastic Improvement Programme.
Under the supervision of the Assistant Principal (AP) or Program Coordinator (PR), activity teachers will select students two weeks prior to any inter-school competition notice. These students will then undergo training and preparation to equip them with the necessary skills to succeed and emerge as winners.
For students in grades 3 to 8, regular remedial sessions will be conducted based on their Half Yearly and Yearly Exam results. These sessions aim to provide support, practice, and training to help students who are struggling academically.
Extended classes will be introduced for students in grades X, XI, and XII as a regular feature. These classes will allow for a comprehensive revision and thorough coverage of the syllabus, ensuring that students achieve the best possible academic results.
In order to enhance students’ skills and talents and enable them to seize opportunities, special training will be offered in extra-curricular activities such as sports, art, and dance.
All external exams, including IBT – ACER and OLYMPIAD tests, will be conducted during the Afternoon Scholastic Improvement Programme hours, providing a convenient and focused environment for students to participate in these assessments.
Additionally, the Afternoon Scholastic Improvement Programme will feature a Skills-O-Panorama event, organized to showcase the skills and talents of the students. This event will take place during the designated programme hours, allowing students to actively participate.
