      Previously one of the best schools in Kolkata. But sadly, quality has dropped. Management should concern about teachers, staff and overall infrastructure of the school.

      My alma mater and one of the best schools in easter India...the education you receive at this hallowed institution can be considered classical...they will give you the space and encouragement to develop your innate talents and mingle with some of the most talented people in these parts, ve it science, commerce or arts ( arts is not taught at high school level though but the school has a history of producing musicians and artists)...it is an elite school, so it is a bit expensive..but they will prepare you for life...the quality of teaching was great when I was there and diligence pays if you work hard for your board exams...the school invests in sports with two basketball courts, a football field and a cricket pitch; there is a table tennis room too, if that interests you. Send your children to DBPC without any hint of hesitation or reluctance for the future will hold opportunities and options if your children graduate from a school like DBPC . Maybe I am a bit biased by the fact that I am an alumni, but if you invest in elite level quality, your children will benefit beyond your comprehension. All in all , its an elite school , with a history of excellence in academics, the arts and sports. Highly recommended.

      Worst selection procedure. They don't even disclose the selected candidates list for new admission. It's all about recommendation and donation. Large number of brokers are there who takes huge amount of money for admission. Don't fool yourself by applying in this school . All these interviews and all are simply eye wash . It's all about money money. Christian people are always preferred. Can't accept these kind of things from a educational institution. Education is a right of every human being. But now they are doing business only .shame .
