- 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. Our students represent over 25 countries and bring a variety of experiences, talents, interests, and perspectives to our school. 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.
- 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.
