They are expected to honour their commitment to the posted DSA School for the duration of the programme they are admitted to.
Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
