Applications for admissions to the D Y Patil International School are open throughout the academic year and open to all nationalities. We take pride in announcing the same fee structure to all other nationalities as Indian citizens. D Y Patil doctrine does not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, sex, ethnic backgrounds or fees. Final acceptance and enrolment are subject to availability and a review of all mandatory and/or requested documentation and reference checks made. Admissions into the IBDP and IGCSE heavily weighs on the prospective students’ prior school records, our own diagnostic placement tests, a review of special learning needs (if any) within the context of the college’s resources, and available space. Admissions will be determined by the admissions department of whether DYPIS can meet the learning needs of the student.
ACCESS AND INCLUSION POLICY
DYPIS provides an inclusive and accessible education that embraces the diversity and uniqueness in us all. We believe that inclusive education provides everyone with meaningful and respectful learning experiences that engenders agency, self-confidence, and a sense of belonging to a larger community. We embrace the challenge of serving the whole family across the spectrum of human differences, and the challenge of shaping our school to meet the needs of the community we serve. Inclusivity is something that we believe is a fundamental part of our ICSE, IGCSE and IB programmes. At DYPIS, we do not discriminate against any student or applicant because of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic level, national origin, physical ability, or learning style.
We strive to support each student to develop their emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual capacity so as to help them become active, responsible, and caring lifelong learners who embrace diversity and who learn from multiple perspectives.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY
The mission of DYPIS is to build a group of inspired and inventive learners, with an emphasis on individual responsibility and creativity. For this reason, our school attaches great importance to the concept of personal integrity. We agree that an important part of learning at all grades must be academic honesty. Academic honesty requires students to generate genuine work, where sources that have informed and inspired their ideas are clearly acknowledged. Acknowledging the contributions of others in academic work strengthens the author’s ideas and helps the audience to identify sources. It allows the community to contribute positively within and beyond the school through the production of original and referenced academic material, adding to the global conversation.
