Admissions

Finding the right school is all about finding right environment for a child and at NPS Channapatna we strive each day with the same goal in mind.



Guidelines & Basic Information

NPS Channapatna promises the finest education to your child. It is established with a focused dedication towards shaping well-rounded global citizens. Admissions to National Public School, Channapatna, are open from Montessori to 8th Standard. Admissions are given to a child based on the set school policy, irrespective of caste, creed, race, religion and gender. In order to teach effectively NPS maintains the class strength at minimum. Considering that limited number of seats are available and the number of admission seeking children is high it may lead to disappointment in case an admission is not secured. Therefore, the school expects that parents understand the limitations of the school. Admission offers are made based on the performance in the written test and interview. There will an interaction process. Parents and child meet the Head of school to discuss expectations from both parents and school. Applicants will be informed directly regarding dates for interaction by the school administration. However, the school reserves the right to admit the child directly without the written test and interview based on the previous academic performance of the child.

The academic year starts in the last week of May every year and ends on March 31st of the subsequent year. Application for admission to the classes normally begins much before the start of academic year. Hence, it is desirable that parents keep track of admission notice and complete the formalities within stipulated time. However, a limited number of seats might exist in the middle of academic year for which information may be obtained by sending e-mail to the school.

The Broader Criteria for Admission

There has been a huge demand for admissions to NPS group of schools. The school has very limited seats available for Montessori and Kindergarten classes. As per the policy and directives of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the admission is based on below guidelines:

  1. The first priority is for siblings of students.
  2. The second priority is for children of NPS teachers and other staff members.
  3. Priority for admission is also listed for alumni of NPS. Since NPS has been functioning since 1959, there are considerable numbers of alumni.
  4. The next preference is for the nationally mobile group, including central services and other transferable services of India.
  5. There is also another category of people who are internationally mobile coming from schools outside India. Bangalore is witnessing a large number of this migratory group who are seeking admission to NPS.
  6. The government prioritizes admission for minorities from different states of India to promote national integration. As such, the school also has status of minority institution.
  7. Applications for admission to KG II are not accepted as there is no vacancy. In other classes admission will depend upon the vacancies likely to arise on account of withdrawal due to parents' transfer.
  8. Exerting any influence for admission directly or indirectly will be a disqualification.
