About Us

What is THINK Global School?

THINK Global School is a path-breaking high school that offers teenagers a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. TGS students don't simply "study abroad." They immerse themselves in twelve countries over four years, undertaking a challenging curriculum that culminates in their official International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations at the end of year four. Throughout their studies, TGS students visit significant historical, cultural, and scientific sites, all while building new skills and relationships with those around them.

Our Purpose

The purpose of TGS is to develop, through an innovative high school education program, a group of potential new world leaders who have not only the intellectual but also the emotional skills to encourage positive change in the world. We do this by traveling the world and exposing students to many different cultures and belief systems in a balanced mix of academics and field explorations. Our students are encouraged to think for themselves, speak up and take responsibility for their actions. Our graduates will enter the next phase of their life as open-minded and empathic young adults who can make good choices for themselves and for the planet based on their unique knowledge and experiences.

We believe

  • Engaged and inspired students are a product of engaged and inspired teachers.
  • Immersing ourselves into the historical, cultural and scientific communities teaches us about others and ourselves.
  • Planet Earth is the best classroom.
  • It's not enough to learn about issues and hypothesize about them. We must act.
  • Student success is not only measured on a test but in life.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a rigorous high school experience for multinational students in a multicultural learning environment, with a specific focus on local immersion.

Who are TGS's Students?

TGS students are competitively selected from all corners of the globe and all walks of life. Together, they are a miniature United Nations, representing different countries of citizenship as well as a diverse range of experiences, talents, and interests.

How do TGS Students Learn?

TGS students spend as much time on classwork and homework as their counterparts at other top international high schools, but we combine this challenging curriculum with a wealth of educational adventures in our host city and its surroundings. These unique enrichment opportunities bring textbook concepts to life by facilitating meaningful exchanges with teachers, peers, experts, and local guides.

THINK Global School students are equipped with the latest MacBooks, iPads and iPhones, and record, report, and share their global education online as they travel the world.
