Mumbai - School Report Question and Answers

How would you rate the school's support and welcome/integration of new students and their families, and why?

Excellent. Separate orientations for students and parents. I remember even being assigned a parent sponsor to answer all my questions! - Sep 2021

As an American you feel very much out of place here. - May 2019

Excellent welcome for new students - Jan 2019

Excellent. ASB has a fantastic admissions team, a line-up of volunteer "Parent Ambassadors" from every grade, and an excellent PTA. ASB has orientation for students and parents; it is a very welcoming community. - May 2017

I believe once you arrive, they are good at welcoming new students and families however the admission process was quite the headache because we had a special needs child and they were very strict on the start date of school and inflexible. The government is very unpredictable and this school made us jump through many hoops and made our PCS very stressful when it shouldn't have been. - Dec 2014

A: The school works to transition new families to the school prior to their arrival throught its ambassador program. Incoming families are linked with current families who become a point of contact for questions about the school itself as well as for living in Mumbai. The school is a friendly and welcoming environment where new students are quickly integrated. The average stay at the school is under 3 years. Because of the fluidity of the community, all are aware of the necessity to support newcomers. - Feb 2014
