Be a Part of a House Without Walls
Like Eton, Winchester, and even Hogwarts, THINK Global School employs the house system to foster a deep sense of community, identity, and peer support across grades.
When you arrive you’ll be placed in one of four houses, each consisting of 10-12 students and one house master. Houses span grades, allowing you to learn from more experienced students when you arrive and pass along your knowledge as you progress. You’ll enjoy weekly dinners and intramural sports matches with your house, and each house has its own colors, mottos, mascots, handshakes, and secret rituals—so even though you may not live in a separate building with your housemates, you’ll still experience a unique bond.
Named after one of the four points on the compass, your house is intended to help guide you through your journey at THINK Global School, just as a point on a compass helps you navigate when you’re lost. When you’re part of a house, there’s always someone to point you in the right direction!
Safety in Numbers, Security Across Time Zones
Student safety is our top priority. We vet each host country extensively for safety and security considerations, and do everything possible to mitigate risks in each location. In addition, we partner with International SOS, the world’s leading medical and travel security assistance company, to provide up-to-the-minute research about safety within our host countries as well as premium evacuation support should an emergency arise.
Since all countries are different, student safety protocol varies from term to term. Students are expected to adhere not only to the safety protocols for each city, but to general THINK Global School policies such as being present for all classes and events and receiving permission from an on-duty staff member before leaving academic or residential areas.
Our policies exist to keep you safe in a variety of environments while still giving you the freedom to explore new places and grow as a global citizen. Your admission to THINK Global School acts as an inherent safety covenant: just as we trust you to be safe and responsible at all times, we ask you to trust us to keep your personal security top-of-mind.
Quality Care for Our Most Important Assets
We believe in not only providing quality medical services, but in teaching students how to be proactive about their health. Our StudentLIFE staff oversees student health and safety, taking the time to get to know your strengths and special needs to offer personalized health recommendations alongside the highest quality care.
We provide comprehensive international medical insurance for all students, and arrange health and wellness care through local service providers long before we set foot in a new location, ensuring that licensed, qualified professionals are always on hand to attend to student needs.
In addition to the dedicated student nurse on staff, several staff members have up-to-date advanced First Aid training, including CPR, making them ideal first responders for any incident. If you come down with a cold, injure yourself on the soccer pitch, or have personal difficulties that may require a professional counselor, you can talk to us right away to get the treatment you need.
