School Notes

  • THINK Global School (TGS) is a private, non-profit high school that travels the world, allowing students the chance to study in four new international cities each academic year.
  • THINK Global School challenges learners, through firsthand experiences of global travel, to become compassionate individuals who are curious and knowledgeable about the world and motivated to affect meaningful change.
  • Students represent over 30 countries and bring a variety of experiences, talents, interests, and perspectives to our school. 
  • Our partner schools provide classrooms and school facilities. From there, we integrate place-based learning at some of the most significant sites in the world.  We`ve had Mandarin lessons at the Great Wall of China, studied the theory of evolution in the Galapagos, and studied ancient culture among the Aboriginal people of Australia. 
  • A THINK Global School education combines an academically rigorous project-based learning curriculum, a competitive 1:5 faculty/student ratio, student-driven and technology-forward teaching philosophies, and integrated service learning to create a 360 educational experience that`s never limited to the classroom. Here, you`ll not only become an exceptional college candidate but also a true game-changer: someone who understands how the world works and has the courage and compassion to make it a better place.
  • THINK Global School accreditations: Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
