Located in the heart of Mumbai, India, the American School of Bombay is a coeducational, independent, IB day school from Pre-K to Grade 12.
ASB offers ongoing Professional Learning opportunities for teachers to intentionally teach 21st Century Skills. Our programs and courses assist our faculty in developing new skills that are at the forefront of educational research and innovation.
The most important Professional Learning comes from our "experts" in the building at ASB.
We have an everyday expectation of collaboration and learning from colleagues. Our established structures and partnerships support individuals’ continued learning and growth.
We partner with higher education institutions to provide online and face-to-face degrees and courses. These include:
We have worked with Boston University, SUNY Buffalo, and the University of Northern Iowa.
Each day, our teachers meet to plan together, either in subject area or grade level teams. They work with instructional coaches to develop diagnostic assessments using data about students. Coaches also support teachers in finding instructional approaches that best meet the children's needs.
Educational Technology coaches help find programs and new applications that will deepen student learning. Our Academic Support and English as an Additional Language Coaches also empower the students. They consult with the classroom teachers to share intuitive ways for supporting the students.
ASB organizes and hosts several educational conferences and events to enhance Professional Learning for our community. Faculty, staff, and educators from international schools across the world, India, and Mumbai participate in them.
In addition to on-site conferences, our campuses and teams host several learning events every year. These include IB Diploma and PYP Conferences, and Fountas and Pinnell training. We also organize the highly select international Google Apps for Education Summits. We are currently running our annual Teacher Training Program (TTP) virtually for local teachers in our partner NGOs.
