Ascend International School - at the forefront of Mumbai's competitive education community

In April of 2018 Ascend received accreditation for the IB MYP programme. IB schools share a common philosophy-a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Ascend believes is important for our students.

Ascend was the first school in Mumbai to introduce Project Based Learning (PBL) methods. PBL is a student-centered 21st Century educational model. PBL students develop high-level critical thinking skills. They demonstrate flexible knowledge, effective problem-solving strategies, and a deep understanding of content through collaboration and active learning.

Combining PBL with the rigorous IB curriculum has enabled Ascend to move to the forefront of learning in Mumbai's competitive education community.
