The DAPP Private School is a proud product of a community initiative where parents together with DAPP Namibia started the school twenty years ago to supplement government efforts to deliver high-quality education in a rural area. The establishment of classrooms, educational materials, and a school bus was financed through parents’ payment of monthly school fees. The operation of the school is partly supported by the Ministry of Education, Arts, and Culture through their payment of most of the teachers’ salaries while the rest of the staff members and other operational costs are covered by school fees.

The DAPP Private School is aimed at educating children in grades 1-10 according to the Ministry of Education Art and Culture curriculum, leading to the state-administered examination at the end of grade 10. The school provides quality education and includes excursions and study trips outside the school in its teachings as extra-curricular activities. The objective is to ensure that most of the learners make it at every grade level without wasting any years by having to repeat any class. 

The 2018 grade 10 learners were the last group to go for the state-administered grade 10 final examination, due to the upcoming change of the education system. The grade 10 learners achieved a pass rate of 97%, this means that most of the learners passed the final exams.
The highlight of the school year for grade 10 learners was the school tour to the coast. The learners had the opportunity to explore the sea and the sand dunes visited the aquarium and the towns of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. On the way back the bus took the learners to Windhoek, where they visited the airport and well as other different historic sites. These are valuable travel experiences for learners who have grown up in the northwest of the country as many are visiting these places for the first time.

In 2018, 271 learners studied at the grade 1-7 levels, while 99 learners were studying in grade 8-10. The school has achieved a 98% pass rate in the current year.
