The Mahindra International School                ( formerly Mercedes-Benz International School) was founded in 1998,(MBIS) and was a well-established, non-profit school serving Pune’s expatriates, repatriating Indian families and also globally minded Indian families who wish to offer an international education to their children.

Currently, 30 nationalities are represented with a student body of approximately 360 students.
