Cultivating Indian Values, nourishing International Excellence.

India, a land of ancient civilizations and a home of diverse cultures, is always warm and inviting. Setting out on a voyage to enrich the mind, body & soul, Good Shepherd International School enables the students to imbibe the great Indian values born out of a rich tradition, to achieve international excellence. GSIS, a National institution with International perspectives, aims at the holistic development of the human personality of students coming from diverse cultural milieus, the largest fully residential school in the Country with 1300 students from all over the world, prepares a generation for the 21st Century.

We prepare our senior students to take the SAT, TOEFL and IELTS and help them to get admission to various universities in the world.

A Vibrant Learning Environment. Mallya Aditi International School (Aditi), a K-12 school, was founded in 1984 by a pioneering group of committed teachers and parents. The school strives to create a vibrant learning environment that is child-centred, international in perspective, engaging, active and critical.

Aditi believes that developing a sense of community and a social conscience lie at the very heart of education. The school’s community service programme includes seniors providing educational support to students at a school for the children of Sri Lankan refugees. Students of the school have also recently become involved with a school for the blind and the Terry Fox Run, to raise funds for cancer research.

Aditi has a Learning Support Laboratory and an ESL department, both with proven expertise in addressing student differences. The members of the school’s learning support team presented three wellreceived papers at the British Dyslexia Association Conference at Warwick in March 2004.

Another of the school’s enduring commitments is to the creative and performing arts. Aditi believes that art, music and drama are profoundly related to learning. This department has led several initiatives to integrate the creative arts into several other parts of the curriculum. The school has also produced critically acclaimed plays, musicals and concerts. Thanks to excellent faculty, subjects like sociology, history, geography, literature and political science have always enjoyed a high status in Aditi.

The school is equally committed to excellence in the sciences and mathematics. A Robotics Club meets once a fortnight to test the hypothesis that genuine understanding comes from hands-on experience. Biology students have participated in tiger-censuses, turtle walks and researched the complexities of the brain.

Teachers are the school’s most valuable resource. Aditi’s emphasis on the professional development of its faculty is legendary. Ten days in a year are devoted to in-service training, reflection and review of current practice. Dedicated time is made available, every week, to meet, plan and prepare. The school offers teachers opportunities to update their skills in institutions in India and abroad.

Aditi has a vibrant college placement service, and graduates attend some of the best colleges and universities in India and around the world. Aditi strives constantly to be a community of critical and life-long learners.

The American School of Bombay takes great pride in the quality of its academic program, the cornerstone of which is its belief in nurturing the whole child. The curriculum is American in its approach but includes both international and multicultural elements. The American School of Bombay was the first school in India to be certified by the International Baccalaureate Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, to offer its IB Primary Years Program, IB Middle Years Program and the IB Diploma Program. The academic program also includes the American High School Diploma and the Advanced Placement examinations. Our students are routinely accepted for admission to choice universities around the world.

The basis of the American School of Bombay’s program is academic excellence with a difference. The plus that sets us apart is our belief in nurturing each student to strive to achieve his or her full potential – not only in academics, but also in character development, self-motivated learning, service learning and appreciating the richness and diversity of cultures and the interdependence of nations. The academic program is challenging and invigorating.

Students are encouraged to achieve their intellectual potential by striving for and attaining the highest standards of academic excellence.
