Welcome to
Our Educational Journey

Where your classroom has no borders and learning knows no bounds.

Imagine learning diplomacy by helping an indigenous tribe defend their land rights. Shooting and editing a video combining anthropological studies of traditional greetings from around the world with your first-hand observations. Or using data modeling techniques from your math class to synthesize information about sea urchins you collected while scuba diving.

At THINK Global School, you don’t just learn about the world – you learn in it. By studying in four countries a year you’re immersed in more history, geography, and culture in high school than most people experience in a lifetime. Your travels and education blend seamlessly, creating an active and engaged learning experience unprecedented in any other school.

What Sets THINK Global School Apart?

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 360º 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.

An Education for Change

It’s not enough for you to simply understand the world. We want to equip you with the tools to make a difference, as well as the drive to do so. Every aspect of your education is designed to help you make sense of the cultural, historical, environmental, and socio-economic influences of the world around you—and the incredible impact that you can have. Through deep interaction with diverse cultures you’ll start to go beyond observation and into participation, doing your small part to help make lives better worldwide.

In past terms, THINK Global School students have taught English to Chinese migrant students, established composting pits in India, and made documentaries chronicling rebuilding efforts in an earthquake-devastated region of Japan.

How will you make a difference?

What I’ve learned at TGS is that human connection is the most powerful thing that exists on this planet, and the most important thing to me. I think if I spend my life fostering, following, and inspiring human connection, that would be the most useful way I could use my existence.
– Madeline Schwartz, TGS 2016

THINK Global School students have white-water rafted on Costa Rica’s Pacuare river, learned sushi rolling in Kyoto, built a school in Tanzania, visited the Tiger’s Nest monastery in Bhutan, camped overnight with the indigenous Yidinji tribe of Australia, and gone caving in Bosnia. These experiences combine subjects including history, science, geography, social studies, foreign language, and physical education, and each one adds a building block to your understanding of the world.

Leading the Technology Revolution

THINK Global School is proud to be recognized as an Apple Distinguished School, paving the way in technology innovation, leadership, and educational excellence. Apple Distinguished Schools demonstrate the use of Apple hardware, apps, and content to promote creativity, collaboration, innovation, and critical thinking to transform learning and teaching.

Upon entering the school, you’ll receive three tools to help you reach your intellectual and creative goals: an iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro. You’ll use them to communicate, conduct research, and create and publish content, developing an intuitive sense of how to select the right tools for each task and use technology to support your undertakings in academia and beyond.

Your arsenal of educational tools includes the most up-to-date apps, software, online courses, and digital libraries. Even mainstays such as parent/teacher conferences get a contemporary update via Skype. Instead of lugging around textbooks, you’ll access assigned texts through a custom online portal and read them on your personal iPad, and in addition to writing traditional essays and research papers you’ll also shoot and edit videos, record podcasts, and build multimedia digital collages.

Through our sophisticated technology program you’ll learn not only how to use today’s digital toolkit to express yourself and create meaningful global dialogue, but also how to adapt to a world of technology that’s changing as quickly as you are.
