Information from EduHub confirms the school name is "Vernus International School" and is American curriculum, but opening date seems to be a bit off, maybe is older information. They said: "Vernus International School in DSO is a PreK-6 primary international School. VIS is currently in the planning and building stages. The facility will open in Sep 2016. Based on the American curriculum, VIS will be a one of a kind school in the UAE whether the curriculum it provides or in its facilities. ... In total, the facility will serve up to as many as 792 students."

So far no information provided regarding admissions, fees, teaching jobs and other vacancies, website, or email contact. Website domain is not www.vernus.ae.

American or Indian curriculum (conflicting information found) but signs at construction site only say "American Curriculum". As of October 2019 there appears to be ongoing construction progress, workers on site, construction materials being delivered, etc. Obviously school did not open September 2019, but maybe September 2020?

School logo has similar design to Vernus ELC logo, and designed by same company (Mumbai Web Creations), so perhaps VIS owner or operator is also EduHub Investment LLC? No information found on Vernus ELC website about a planned school anywhere.

Some construction information directories have a "Venus International School" under construction in DSO, but with an incorrect location. Possibly a typo for "Vernus" or old information if the school name changed.

27 March 2019 review

Vernus International School, Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), American Curriculum. School name is "Vernus" according to pictures on wall around construction site (in Q1 2019), but construction sign at plot also says "Client: Venus International School FZCO". Sign also refers to Golden Square Engineering Consultants (GS), Brickswell Building Contracting LLC. As of Nov 2019 construction appears to be ongoing (workers on site), maybe ready for September 2020 opening. There are some public internet references to a Venus International School Indian curriculum ICSE or CBSE school in Dubai, or a Venus Indian School, under construction in DSO, opening in 2019, and related to Venus International School in Bangalore, India. But we can't find any reliable source of information, and further investigation indicates no obvious connection to VIS in India.

Venus International School (VIS) in Bangalore, India, is an Indian ICSE curriculum school, website at vis.edu.in. Official information does not provide any connection to a US or IB curriculum school in India, Dubai, UAE, or anywhere else. Nor does VIS have any information about an Indian curriculum branch in Dubai planned or under construction (at least not public information). VIS website says "... the school follows a child-centered curriculum based on ICSE pattern..." but also refers to both "Venus International School (ICSE)" and "Venus International School (CBSE)" without any further explanation. ICBSE website lists VIS as a ICSE school, with CISCE affiliation code KA182.

Venus IS India is part of the St. Ann's Group of Institutions. Another school in the same group with a similar name is Venkat International School, but also with no information about a branch in Dubai being opened.

Vernus (or Venus) school project not found in GS list of projects (as of Mar 2019).

Not related to the new Vertus International School in Al Waha, Dubai, owned by GEMS Education.

Our conclusion is that Vernus International School is the correct name. Possibly affiliated with the Vernus Early Learning Centers in Dubai.
