The American School of Bombay (ASB) was founded as an independent, coeducational day school in 1981. The school offers an educational program from Prekindergarten to Grade 12 for 700 students representing over 50 nationalities. ASB was designed to serve the expatriate community of Mumbai and is recognized with full accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. ASB has been an IB World School since 1998 and is authorized to offer both the Primary Years and Diploma Programmes. While focusing on the development of the whole child, the school offers a college preparatory curriculum that awards graduates an American high school diploma and/or the IB diploma.
ASB challenges students to become lifelong learners; pursuing their dreams while being caring and sensitive to the needs of others. ASB is a school that believes mutual trust and respect are essential for healthy, enduring relationships and to that end promotes international mindedness on the parts of adults and students in the school community. Our school houses families and students from diverse cultures and perspectives and is committed to international understanding and responsible citizenship.
Developing 21st century learning skills is a priority at ASB. These skills complement and enhance the IB learner profile, the school mission and form the basis of our programming. Students focus on communication skills, being digitally literate and inventive thinking through effective teaming, collaboration and interpersonal skills. They are encouraged to be aware of their personal, social and civic responsibility towards themselves and others and this is emphasized through our well-established Community and Social Responsibility (CSR) and CAS programs. The school's curriculum is enhanced with a widely-recognized one-to-one laptop program throughout the school that focuses on technological fluency from the earliest years. Students are required to bring their own laptops in grades 4 through 12.
ASB's well-equipped campuses - both academically and recreationally - offers a number of extended learning opportunities after school and during school holidays. ASB is a member of the South Asia Inter-School Association and the American Schools in India Activities Conference, which provide students the opportunity to compete in sports and collaborate in the arts with other international schools. Students also participate in Model United Nations, International Schools Theatre Association and international choral and instrumental concerts. In addition, all middle and high school students participate in a Week Without Walls/Yatra program that is directly linked with the curriculum.
ASB graduates are accepted at the world's finest colleges and universities including MIT, Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Emory, Duke, McGill, University College London, Leeds University, University of Sydney and the University of Paris and contribute personally and professionally across a diversity of fields.
