30 October 2016, DPS Academy closing March or April 2017
- News reports (KT, GN) said the school would be closing at the end of the 2016-2017 academic year.
- The Khaleej Times quoted the vice-chairman and managing director of DPSA, Dinesh Kothari, as saying "The location of the campus did not suit the Indian curriculum school and it was just too large for the student enrollment number. It was not economically viable to keep it open".
30 July 2013 review
- United Holdings information refers to both DPS Academy and UIIS schools as the same - United Holdings is a Dubai based holding company and the owner or the school, or one of the joint venture partners (ownership structure not clear). A report in the Gulf News 12 Dec 2012 quoted Ashok Chandra, Chairman of the DPS Society, as saying "UIIS is a joint venture between Dubai-based Union Holdings and Dinesh C. Kothari, Pro-Vice Chairman of DPS Dubai ..." (presumably he or the GN meant United Holdings - school is not listed in the Union Holding Company portfolio).
- Artist impression renders show pictures of the new school with the name "Union International Indian School", from Archgroup Consultants.
11 March 2013 review
- DPS Academy is a new Indian school opening in Dubai with opening date expected to be April 2013. DPS Academy appears to be the Union Indian International School in Dubai (UIIS). Latest information for DPSA didn't mention a connection with UIIS, but school details seem to be the same or similar (location, curriculum, owner, fees, etc). Dehli Public School Society directory of overseas DPS schools still lists UIIS but not DPS Academy.
- Initial enrolment capacity will be 1,600 students from KG to Grade 5 level, with grades 6-8 classes starting April 2014, and grades 9-12 after that (time schedule not supplied, although UIIS information previously said grades 9-11 would start in April 2015). Previous UIIS information was that KG-Grade 5 capacity would be 2,000 students.
- UIIS information said campus area 4 hectares (10 acres), and facilities including amphitheatre, football field, indoor multi-purpose hall, two basketball courts, cricket pitch, swimming pool.
- DPS Academy Dubai is not related to DPS Academy in Georgia, USA (a soccer school) - domain www.dpsacademy.com.
- DPS Academies seen in various other locations (usually USA) are not related to DPS Academy Dubai either - DPS is an acronym for Department of Public Safety in most of those cases.
