The American School of Bombay (ASB) is an independent, coeducational day school in Mumbai, India. The school offers a U.S.-style educational program from Prekindergarten through grade 12 for 700+ students representing over 50 nationalities.
In 1981, a group of international parents started the American School of Bombay with just 12 students in a room at the American Consulate. In August 2012, ASB evolved from a single campus school to a dual campus school: elementary campus and secondary campus. Located in the central suburbs of the city, the two campuses offer about 200,000 square feet of custom-designed instructional spaces for delivering unique and individualized programs to the students.
The school's structure, curriculum methods, and pedagogy integrate an American approach to education with the International Baccalaureate Programme. IB courses of study in Prekindergarten-grade 5 and grades 11-12 include Primary Years Programme in the elementary school, Pre-IB Program in grades 9-10, and the Diploma Programme in grades 11-12. The middle school, comprising grades 6-8, offers students a full program to prepare them for high school.
ASB also offers several 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 and provides students the opportunity to compete in sports and collaborate in arts with other international schools. Students also participate in Model United Nations, International Schools Theatre Association, and international choral and instrumental concerts. Besides, all middle and high school students participate in a Week Without Walls/Yatra programs that are directly linked with the curriculum and reflect the concept of learning beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to be aware of their personal, social, and civic responsibility towards themselves and others - this is emphasized through our well-established Community and Social Responsibility (CSR) and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) programs.
ASB's endeavor to provide optimum indoor air quality for students is an ongoing process that utilizes knowledge, research, and best practices from around the world. Purifying air by three-stage HEPA filtration, monitoring with real-time air-quality sensors, enclosing the play areas and recreational spaces, and having more than 50,000 live indoor plants, including green walls, are some of the initiatives that ensure the best possible indoor air quality.
Our rigorous program is about developing critical thinking skills while acquiring academically relevant content knowledge. At the American School of Bombay, we recognize each child's unique abilities and develop their individual skills to become compassionate citizens who understand that their choices can make an impact on the world.
