Our Story:

In 2008, the founders of Ascend International School (Kasegaon Education Society) began searching for their educational inspiration by touring schools around the globe. Their overall goal was to create a pre-K through 12 school that offered families living in Mumbai the type of innovative education that is required to prepare students for the developing landscape of the 21st century. With that in mind, they wanted to find an existing school to work beside that highlighted some specific traits: problem solving, collaboration, big ideas, generosity, high expectations, and above all, a school where everyone had an enthusiasm for learning. After touring University Child Development School in Seattle, USA, the AIS founders discovered the model for their visionary project.

Ascend International School is currently running admissions season and will open its doors for students in August 2012. For more information, please visit
