International schools in Mumbai

Expats moving to Mumbai for a short-term assignment generally opt to send their children to an international school. This option allows students to make a more straightforward transition into expat life in India with minimal disruption to their studies. 

As Mumbai's expat community grows, it is becoming harder and harder for parents to secure a place for their child at one of the city's popular international schools. Therefore, expats need to start the process of finding a school for their child as soon as their relocation to Mumbai is confirmed.

Fees at international schools are high and there are often extra costs for extra-curricular activities, textbooks, stationery and school trips. Therefore, if possible, expats should negotiate an allowance for their children's school fees into their expat employment package.

Below is a list of some of the city's most prominent international schools.
