A warm welcome to middle school students and parents. The middle school offers an inviting, safe and supportive environment for students to learn and grow. Students are empowered to explore the attitudes, values, and habits of mind that will allow them to make complex choices both in their learning and in preparation for life.
Middle school is a time of developing independence when students begin to make decisions about their own learning and to inquire and explore in ways that enhance their development. Students become more aware of their role in groups, valuing others’ choices and recognizing the strengths in one another. Collectively, our middle school represents cultures and nations from all around the world. Our diversity helps us to learn about perspective, culture, compassion, and consensus. We look forward to getting to know all our Middle School students and parents. We hope that this school year is a happy one, full of learning, friendships, and personal discovery.
How do we prepare our students for an exciting and dynamic future in the heart of Mumbai, India? At the American School of Bombay, we believe that young adults learn and thrive when challenged. We believe that when students are suitably challenged, they will rise to the occasion; when students get treated with respect, they will respect themselves and others; and when students are given opportunities to make choices and explore, they will learn about themselves and their role in the world around them.
Our international middle school in Mumbai provides each student with a rich and rigorous academic program in math, science, social studies, language arts, and French or Spanish. We seek to develop students’ artistic skills and sensibilities through programs in band, choir, art and drama, and design technology. The physical education classes help in the discovery and development of athletic abilities of the students. The advisory program helps students build relationships and community within their class.
