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.
The American School of Bombay is one of the most established international schools in Mumbai, India. Founded in 1981, in response to a growing expatriate community, our journey began with just 12 students in a room at the American Consulate. Spearheaded by a group of parents, our philosophy has been to offer a dynamic and rigorous education to internationally mobile families.
In 1998, ASB moved to a purpose-built campus in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), the geographic center of Mumbai. In the same year, ASB was accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) and offered the IB Diploma to its graduates for the first time.
In 2002, ASB made the strategic decision to undertake a stakeholder lead planning process which allowed us to set a vision for organizational change that has led to ASB’s leadership in technology integration, individualization of learning, and school governance. During this process, we defined our Vision, Mission, and Core Values, which are still at the core of our school today.
As our school grew, it became evident that we needed more space. The Board of Trustees approved an expansion to a second campus in 2011, and in 2012 we moved our Elementary School to our new campus. At the same time, our BKC Secondary School was completely refitted to accommodate the changing demographic, with specific areas for Middle and High School, along with shared facilities, a structure that is still in place today.
