ASB School Stories

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.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

As educators, and with many of us also parents, our team can reassure you that our students are safe and secure, individually challenged, and encouraged to take risks to grow to their full potential.

We understand the significance of finding a supportive community in Mumbai, and have a dynamic community of staff, parents and partners who collaborate to quickly settle your children into a daily routine, establish immediate support, and engage your entire family in new learning opportunities. In ASB’s Office of Admission, your family’s transition is our primary focus.


The American School of Bombay has a “rolling admission” process which means students may enroll at any time during the school year. We understand that securing school enrolment is a priority for families, and that school often provides an anchor when relocating to another city.  Our admissions process is straight forward, and our assessment of any application will begin as soon as we have received complete applications and reviewed each child’s file for admission.

Once an application has been approved, we work with families to ensure their children can start at ASB as soon as is feasible, and each year we have students starting almost every week of the school year. In collaboration with our Principals, Teachers and Administrators, we ensure the transition to ASB is as smooth and positive as possible.

The Admissions Process

The American School of Bombay makes the application process for new students as simple and transparent as possible. The journey towards personalized attention begins with the Office of Admission, knowing that all children and families transition differently.

 To begin the application process, please be sure to first read the tabs on Age Requirement/Grade Placement below, and if applicable, the tab on Indian Nationals. It is important that you review ALL information before you progress to the inquiry stage.
