Superintendent: Craig Johnson
Craig Johnson returned to India, where he spent 12 years of his childhood, after living in Brazil for 15 years.

A dedicated educationist, Johnson endeavours to stay engaged with his students by coaching soccer, and trying to teach or co-teach in an English class as often as possible. A regular presenter and workshop facilitator on a variety of Leadership and School Improvement topics, Johnson has also published a novel, Wave Watcher. His second novel is expected to arrive soon.
Varied experiences for students
We firmly believe that Information Technology is eminently capable of promoting active learning. It allows our teachers to share information efficiently and conduct their teaching with proficiency. It also enables the administrators to develop a seamless system of management, one that facilitates timely communications between students, teachers, administrators and parents.
Even though American School of Bombay is designed in a rather USA style, the settings are primarily Indian. The community of teachers and students are from 40 countries and this enables our students to have rich and varied experiences
Efficiency through digital tools
Currently the school has deployed technologies like: Google Apps, Windows Live@Edu, Adobe Connect, Destiny, Dropbox, Discovery and Safari Video Streaming. Every student at ASB has their own laptop or device. Games based learning and social technologies are just some of the many tools being researched at the moment and will be used in the future.

All traditional application-based learning and management services have been moved to a cloud based environment while retaining secure, reliable service in order to better facilitate anytime, anywhere learning opportunities.
We seek to empower our students with skills, courage, optimism and integrity so that they can pursue their dreams and enhance the lives of others
