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!

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.
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.
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 20 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 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 fourth year. All graduating students also earn high school diplomas accredited by the U.S.-based Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
