THINK Global School is an IB-authorized traveling high school. Every year, our school travels to three international cities to explore, study and learn.
From Peking Man to Peking Duck, from emperors to entrepreneurs, from jade jewelry to green technology, few cities are evolving as rapidly and dramatically as Beijing.
Having sat out the Industrial Revolution, the world’s largest capital city is making up for lost time, accomplishing in 15 years what it took the West one hundred and fifty. Now home to more iPhone application developers than anywhere else, Beijing is a metamorphic metropolis that introduced our students to the rising stars of innovation. The city challenged them to keep up with the pace, while they learnt the Mandarin language.
Beijing BISS international School is an independent day school located in central Beijing, right off the North Third Ring Road in Chaoyang. This area is home to most of Beijing’s foreign embassies and global business headquarters. BISS was founded by the International School of Singapore (ISS), and serves 340 students from 40 different nationalities, ages 3 to 19. The curriculum emphasizes global collaboration, with students using apps like StudyWiz and Wikispaces to connect virtually to their peers all around the world. But sometimes, as in the case of the nearby Olympic Village or our THINK Global School students, the world simply comes to Beijing. BISS is also an IB World School, and one of the first schools in China to offer IB’s Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, and Diploma Programme.
