The collective energy that the students at TGS possess is remarkable. Somehow, the more places they go and things they do, the more energy they have!… It is such an inspiration!

What is THINK Global School?
THINK Global School is a path-breaking high school that offers teenagers a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. THINK Global School students don’t simply study abroad. They gain a greater understanding of our world’s many cultures by eating, exploring, and living like the locals in three new countries each year, all while undertaking a challenging curriculum that culminates in their official International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations at the end of the 12th grade. Throughout their studies, THINK Global School students visit significant historical, cultural, and scientific sites, building new skills and relationships with those around them.
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 21 different countries of citizenship and 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 country 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 can record, report, and share their global education online as they travel the world.
TGS has been authorized as an official IB World School by the International Baccalaureate Organization.
The school’s curriculum is guided by the IB Diploma Programme, with students taking the IB examinations prior to graduation at the end of their third year. TGS is also fully accredited by the U.S.-based Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
