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.

Welcome to the American School of Bombay (ASB), where with authenticity and enthusiasm, we endeavor to keep the promise set forth in our Mission statement:

To inspire all of our students to continuous inquiry, empowering them with the skills, courage, optimism, and integrity to pursue their dreams and enhance the lives of others.


“All ASB community members deserve to thrive. This means creating an environment and experience that avoids putting people in a position where they have to choose between happiness, health, and success. Rather than an “or” exercise, achievement and growth becomes an “and” endeavor. At ASB, we believe the school plays a critical role in promoting the well-being of its community members.”


We begin the 2023-2024 school year under the theme of The Year of Well-being. This theme was among several possibilities suggested by our very own students, and then purposefully chosen by ASB’s world-class staff in the context of our present reality. We believe a continued and deliberate investment in the well-being of our community will have a direct, positive impact on each individual’s health, happiness, and success. 

Well-being is a central tenet of the school’s strategic improvement efforts, formerly launched in the previous school year. At your convenience, take a visual tour of the key components of the Strategic Agenda, and better yet, join us in the work to advance the school and its programs, for the express benefit of our cherished students.

Our school has long been recognized as a pioneering school in the world of international education. That drive to innovate and offer our students the most relevant and effective learning experience possible will continue in earnest. Our educational program evolves each and every year as we commit to delivering on our Mission, upholding our core values, and striving to achieve our preferred future.

ASB is a forty-year-old school deeply rooted in a two-thousand-year-old city. We are deeply committed to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and have mobilized the community toward removing any impediments to teaching and learning at ASB. We are intentionally international, holding ourselves to the highest standards of excellence, and we expect you to join us in holding ourselves accountable to this benchmark. 

We know who we are and we accept the responsibility to meet the diverse needs of each and every one of our students. Come learn and thrive with us. We are what school should be.
