Being the first symposium scholar is quite surreal – it’s not easy to describe, but thank god for metaphors. Getting back to THINK Global School is like falling into a whirlpool. You are surrounded by branches, which represent a moment. You want to grab every single one, because, in the moments you catch, you remember why TGS is home. What you grasp is the love, respect, and integrity; you grasp...

I usually have an active imagination, but at the time I was in the midst of packing and drew a blank. It was April, and the Alberta air was just starting to recover from a mildly cold winter.

While enrolled at THINK Global School, students are encouraged to be creative during the course of their studies and travels.

In “Cosmopolitan Greetings,” poet Allen Ginsberg uses snappy sentences to give the reader personal advice. His lack of rhyme scheme and emphasis on stream of consciousness gaps this work from the traditional structure of poetry. I took into consideration the many stylistic devices while writing my emulation "Multicultural Milkshake" for a recent assignment in IB Language & Literature (English). My intention was to give brief advice to students, TGS ones...

In “The Ajanta Caves as a modernized school,” 11th grade student Isaac F. uses his imagination and Google Sketchup to help illustrate how our modern classrooms bear a striking similarity to the Ajanta Caves.

ON OCTOBER 20TH, over 10,000 skateboarders rallied up in Plaza de Mayo to protest against not having enough space to skateboard in Buenos Aires. I was fortunate enough to partake in the public rally, and it was clear what the demonstrators were demanding. A skateboarding protestor named Augustin stated, “We want more space to practice. The city is full of bike lanes, but for skaters there is almost nothing.” This...

One of the key characteristics that our Admissions Department looks for in a potential student is their ability to adapt to a transient lifestyle. Students at THINK Global School have the unique opportunity of immersing themselves within twelve distinct cultures during their studies, so the ability to acclimate quickly is of paramount importance. 9th and 10th grade students Isaac, Alejandro, Hudson, Joseph, and Paul explore this concept in our newest...

Grade 9 student Isaac F. spent his winter break transforming his photographic content from Ecuador into powerful graphics with a voice and a mission. This initiative is not uncharacteristic of this young man who created a t-shirt design company at the age of 11. Here are excerpts and images from his blog, Inner Monologues. Although I’ve had a great life so far, I felt like a part of me is...

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...

After a few years in the UK, I moved to the British Virgin Islands (which many viewed as an improvement even on Birmingham!) and from there on to Switzerland, my first stint at...

1. Hi Maxim. It's been two years now since you graduated from THINK Global School. What have you been up to in that time?  Since graduating from TGS, I have been attending the University of Toronto studying mineral (mining) engineering. I know you might be asking why, out of all engineering, I chose mineral engineering? It's because I want to throw myself into the space mining industry. I figured it...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best. I think like the Canadians, we are determined not to be seen as the same as our more populated neighbours. With that in mind...
