The American School of Bombay is a PreK to Grade 12 school located in Mumbai, India. The school delivers a dynamic educational program that encourages each student to achieve her or his highest potential. While ASB is a U.S. style school, the Indian setting and our multi-national community, representing over 51 countries, brings together children who have varied experiences to learn in a rich and unique environment. As an International Baccalaureate World School, our PYP, Middle School, Pre-IB, and IB Diploma program perfectly complement our American Curriculum. This is something extra for our students who are seeking a superior education and admission to top universities all over the world.
The American School of Bombay has been considered a leader in the use of innovative technologies in education since 2001. It is the only overseas American School that has a PreK-12 Laptop/Tablet program since 2003. In 2008, in response to requests from international schools around the world, the American School of Bombay created ASB Un-Plugged, a biennial international 1-to-1 learning collaboration. This started as a three day event for overseas international schools and laptop schools in the US that wanted to witness first-hand how students, staff, and parents embrace innovation, change, and leadership in education for the 21st century. The event is designed to share information on the implementation of a wireless laptop and tablet program. Participants hear educators and students from around the world share their techniques, ideas, and applications that have proven to be successful in a laptop/tablet environment. They learn about the administration of the program - launching a 1-to-1 learning program, staff development, network management, equipment management, classroom management, acceptable use policies, parent and community support, resources, and support structures. They hear from technology companies and services.
The event has evolved and grown over the last four years and now includes both pre and post conference institute sessions. Our list of participating schools has grown from 25 schools in 2008 to 75+ schools and universities from all over the world including the US. These include many of the most prestigious international schools within and outside India, some of which are emerging 1-to-1 programs - Taipei American School, American School of Dubai, American School of Warsaw, Zurich International School, Singapore American School, American School of Doha, International School of Kuala Lumpur, American International School of Dhaka, Hong Kong International School, Lausanne Collegiate School, St. Paul Academy, Frankfurt International School, American Embassy School - New Delhi, Cairo American College, etc. They are represented by their school administrators, teachers, and technology directors and coordinators, and tech support team members.
