The American School of Bombay - America in Mumbai

Children of different races at the American School of BombayA school which started with just 12 students in a room in the Consulate of the United States of America, the American School of Bombay (ASB), went on to become a one-of-its-kind educational institution in Mumbai. The idea to offer an educational program that would help students to make an easy transition from one international setting to another, came to a group of parents somewhere around 1981. And as the school grew, it moved from the American Consulate to residential apartments. In November 1998, the school moved to its new premises in the Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai.

The entrance to the American School of Bombay, Bandra-Kurla ComplexASB is a private trust, organised under Indian Law. Its structure, curriculum, methods and general approach are based on the American system of education. The school is managed by the American School of Bombay Trust set up under the terms and conditions of the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi.

The curriculum for each grade at ASB is designed to challenge each student at the highest level.

ASB's Primary years Program is an international curriculum designed for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years. The middle years program is a coherent program that provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills appropriate for students in the 11-16 years age group.

The American School of BombayASB's most sought after course is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program which is a pre-university course of studies, leading to examinations that meet the needs of highly motivated secondary school students between the ages of 16 to 19 years. It is a two year comprehensive curriculum that allows graduates to fulfill the requirements of the national educational system.

When we decide on the school for our children, we also consider the extra curricular activities that are undertaken, for the overall growth of the child. Commenting on the extracurricular activities and community service, J. Mains, Superintendent, ASB said, "We believe in the overall growth of our students. Students choose their activity depending on their tastes and interests. You name it (activities), we have it." The school offers a rich program of after school activities including team sports, tennis, swimming, snorkeling, karate, chess, dance, drama, art & craft, cooking, etc.

There are specific eligibility criteria for every program, which every child should meet before seeking admission in the school. ASB is a non-profitable organisation, operating on revenues generated from students fees, capital levies and other charges. The school also receives some assistance from the State department of the United States government.
