Vision / Mission

Our Story

BIS is a small school with a big voice in Education, One that is heard and respected far and wide. It was founded by visionaries in 1962. BIS is unique as it was established by a group of parents known as our Founder members who were dissatisfied with the prevalent system of education then. The BIS Association is a parent co-operative. The Governing Body consists of the Trustees, Founder Members, elected Parent Members and Principal. The Founder Members drafted a written constitution which gives the guidelines and framework to the school.
This ensures continuity of philosophy and approach.

Our Vision

“To create an appreciation and understanding and respect of various cultural back grounds and national heritages in order to help the child face the changing world of today, thereby, preparing him to take an active and responsible role as a citizen in the world of the future;”

“ to cultivate and develop the character of the children ; to guide their minds towards independent, liberal, creative thinking; to strengthen their wills; to inculcate tolerance and understanding for all their fellows;”

“to expect the parents and teachers to work together in harmony for the best
interest of the children;”

“to attract a teaching staff of  high calibre, character and ability, capable of mental flexibility inspired with a love for imparting knowledge and the development of the children’s innate curiosity and the skills by which it can be satisfied; to be aware that a way of teaching grows out of a philosophical respect for what is taught.”

Excerpts from –Memorandum of Association and constitution of the Bombay International School Association (Mumbai 1999)


“To limit the classes in this school to a reasonably small number of pupils in order that imaginative teaching methods of a high standard may develop the child’s ability to its fullest”

“to teach the disciplines and skill of learning; to awaken an interest in the natural phenomena; to encourage manual dexterity and pride in the work of hands; to teach the child to respect and enjoy learning; to educate the child within the school hours, thus eliminating the need for excess outside homework.”

“To teach Indian philosophy, literature, music, art soundly at appropriate levels in relation to their world concepts; to relate events as they occur to the past, thus giving the child a clear perspective of the history of the past and present and how it affects his environment and developing responsibilities, to develop pride in the varied national citizenship of the students as a basis for participation in world citizenship.”

“to encourage the feeling of co-operation, inter-dependence and brotherhood, thus giving the basis for practical living as means for dealing with problems of life with intelligence and fortitude.”

“to develop in the parents of the children a pride and respect for the value of good education and the responsibility of achieving this education through their own efforts and continuing interest. “
