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

As Mumbai's expat community continues to grow, it is becoming more and more difficult for parents to secure a place for their child at one of the city's popular international schools. So, expat families need to start the process of finding a school for their children 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. 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.
