Over 10 new schools of specialised excellence to be functional in Delhi from 2022-23 session: DoE

Ten new Schools of Specialized Excellence (SoSEs) will soon be made operational in the national capital for the 2022-23 academic session, the Education Directorate (DoE) announced. In addition, the Armed Forces Preparatory School (AFPS) will also be made operational in the Jharoda Kalan area of ​​Delhi.

“Ten more schools with four specializations (four STEM, two humanities, two performing and visual arts and two high-end 21st century skills) will be added, while the AFPS will be operational in Jharoda Kalan. So the total number of SoSEs in the academic year 2022-23 will be 31,” a senior DoE official told PTI.

“All SoSEs are affiliated with the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE), which cooperates with the International Baccalaureate (IB). Admission will be offered in grade 9 in all schools and grade 11 in the STEM SSOs and the AFPS through an aptitude test or based on a child’s demonstrated interest in previous classes,” he added.

After the launch of the ten new Schools of Specialized Excellence, the total number of SoSEs operational in the academic session will be 31.

The SoSEs were launched by the Delhi government as choice-based schools more than a year ago. These specialized schools strive for infrastructure, world-class facilities, optimal use of technology and a new age curriculum. With this, the government wants to focus on experiential learning through projects, field visits and internships in the areas of interest of students.

The online application process is scheduled to begin from Thursday and the aptitude test will be conducted between March 15-30. To be eligible, students must be residents of Delhi and can be a member of any government supported school as at least 50 percent of the seats are reserved for students of these schools. The remaining places are open to students from other accredited schools in Delhi.

“A minimum of 60 percent aggregated grades in Class 7 is required for admission to Class 9 of an SoSE. In the case of performing arts and visual arts, the minimum grade requirement may be waived if the candidate has received an award in any art form in a competition at the zonal level and above,” the official added.
