JBCN School Borivali

At JBCN International, Borivali, we aim to provide learners with 360 degree learning, where the academic learning is complemented by infrastructure, a strong co – curricular program which includes sports, theatre and creative art and assessment that truly serves as feedback of learning rather than just testing. The events and special days at JBCN enhance the skills that the learners are introduced to in their classrooms, music, dance, art rooms and the sports field. Changing the existing trends in education is JBCN Borivali’s ‘Club’ culture. While many schools in the country organize clubs only to satisfy certain mandates, JBCN Borivali looks on to clubs as a value addition. At JBCN, the belief is that learning is continuous and lifelong – whether for board members, teachers or learners.

JBCN School Oshiwara

Our aim is to create life-long learners, thinkers, innovators and leaders who are well versed in 21st century core skills, moulding them into responsible, conscientious and globally aware citizens who will stand out in the real world and make a difference to the world community. Our strong belief, that the learning environment that provides the right balance of freedom, creativity and structure, allowing the emergence of original thought is essential and the same is echoed in our school corridors as we watch our children blossom each day, a world, where boundaries would not restrict any question that our learners might have. We understand that to promote originality in thought, one must be able to accept that traditional thoughts will be challenged, and we must have the courage to allow the children to change them.

JBCN at Glance




JBCN Heal, Cares & Aware


"One People. One World", is a motto that defines their endeavours towards imbibing acceptance.
JBCN'ites believe that everyone should have opportunities and be accepted, should recognize that they are part of and responsible for the world we live in and that everyone can be uplifted. Most of their actions are influenced by this overarching belief. The learners imbibe this philosophy in all that they do whether it is teaching the helpers in school – literacy or building homes for economically backward through habitat for humanity or simply through stopping the use of ball pens so that we may reduce our consumption of plastic and wastage among others. The outreach programmes come alive through the JBCN Heals, Cares and Aware banner, adopting principles of the UN global sustainability project in daily practice. JBCN’ites are encouraged to challenge their boundaries and think outside the box through events such as the innovators convention, literary festivals, sporting tournaments and theatre performances to name a few.


Over the years, we have made a family of over 4000+ learners and their parents.
It is always gratifying and appreciative to hear their thoughts about our schools and philosophy.

When our daughter joined school, Rhea was a shy and timid child. The warm environment of the school brought about a positive change, giving her confidence to speak in the company of people and enhance her social skills. One of the best qualities of the school is the non-pressure attitude giving full confidence to the parents to leave their children in the hands of a very capable, warm and friendly staff.

A.K Agarwal – Director

DRS International School, Hyderabad

In today’s world of intense competition, only the fittest will survive a fitness that will be derived from the education, skills and personality of the person. Hence in today’s skill-based world, the biggest gift and the best investment for a child by parents is ‘EDUCATION’. Based on my past experience and interaction with the school management team, I am very confident that JBCN International School will be one of the best educational institutes and that it will deliver my vision of education: ‘PERSONALITY FOR YOUR CHILD AND RESPECT FOR PARENTS’.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala – President

The mentoring, the management and the people skills make a big difference for a school and I am happy to be associated with such educationalists.

Mr.Kumar Mangalam Birla


What we liked most about the school was the creativity and innovation that they brought into every activity, whether it was the outings they planned, the annual concert that they put together or even the snacks they served!.
