Welcome to Mercedes-Benz International School (MBIS) and welcome to Pune, India’s most liveable city!

This year, MBIS is celebrating 20 years of educational excellence. Whether you are a new member of our community, if you are thinking of joining us, or if you have been a member of our community for many years, we hope you will join us in this important milestone celebration. We also wish to welcome our Alumni to join and celebrate our 20 years.

Founded in 1998, MBIS provides students a learner-focused, rigorous and balanced education which draws on the best pedagogical methods in international practice including an emphasis on inquiry. Learning is focused on knowledge, skills as well as attitudes. We are very proud to be India’s first 3-Programme IB World school.

By our first birthday, in 1999, MBIS became India’s first school to be authorized in both the Primary Years and the Middle Years Programmes of the International Baccalaureate.

By the early 2000’s, we had outgrown the facilities we were using and, in 2004, we moved to the purpose-built Hinjawadi campus. Our green and vibrant campus, built around our central courtyard is an oasis in the heart of an urban tech park.

With accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS) in 2005 and Authorization for the IB Diploma in 2006, MBIS entered the ranks of fully accredited International schools. In 2009, we were accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges based in the USA. Currently we are the only fully accredited International school in Pune.

As we look forward to the future, we envision MBIS as an empowered, innovative and agile community of learners who achieve and contribute positively within and beyond the school. We have a purposely small student body of 360 students from over 30 nationalities. We value the advantages of being a small school with a family feel, where we know each other and have a strong sense of community. We view the partnership of teachers and parents as key to the success of all learners.

Please join us as we celebrate our 20th year!
