Deutsche Schule Bombay, a German school with campuses at Breach Candy and Lower Parel, and Lycée Francais International de Mumbai, a French school in Lower Parel—have also got approvals from the BMC for offline classes.
Educationists have been demanding the reopening of all schools in a phased manner, citing the limitations of online teaching.
