South Mumbai location

DSB International School is a boutique international school located in South Mumbai. We are a modern school with a rich history. Founded in 1961, the first international school in Mumbai, the school was originally established to cater to the German expatriate community. It has since grown to incorporate a diverse range of local and international students representing 40 different countries.

German Heritage

We are proud of our German heritage, which lays the foundation for inter-cultural learning and international mindedness to embrace the true philosophy of an international education. Mumbai is a dynamic, cosmopolitan, multi-cultural metropolis. We are uniquely placed to provide learning experiences that draw upon the local context and the wider global community.

English and German curricula

DSB International School is part of a large network of German Schools Abroad (ZfA), present in 30 countries. We offer duel International and German curricula. Our International Primary and Lower Secondary sections (Kindergarten to grade 8) follow an International Curriculum based on English National Curriculum, whilst the German Section (KGto 8) follows an approved version of the Curriculum of Thüringen. Students in grade 9 and 10 study the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) while our most senior students (grade 11 & 12) study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We will soon be offering the German IB where, as part of the IBDP, students can study a science and/or a humanities subject in German and achieve a bilingual degree.

Best teacher-student ratio

Growing Learning Minds is the school vision and we pride ourselves on providing quality education for all students to achieve academically and develop holistically into informed, principled, global citizens. We aim to equip our students with the necessary skills for success at university and beyond. DSB International School has the best teacher-student ratio in Mumbai with classes ranging from 1:1 to 1:13. This enables us to maximise our support structures for every student to ensure successful, meaningful learning. Our two campus' have state-of-the art facilities including a rooftop football pitch, a Design & Technology studio, modern science labs, a music room, a visual art studio and a 3-D printing studio.

New Euro-campus 2020

The senior school campus will be moving to the brand-new 'Euro-campus' in 2020, which we will share with the French school. This will provide even better facilities, including a swimming pool plus great opportunities for collaboration.

DSB International School is a warm and friendly school community that is unparalleled in Mumbai or India.
