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...

1) Hi Liam, can you tell us what you’ve been up to since graduating THINK Global School?  I decided while in my senior year at TGS that I was not going to pursue a university education right out of the gate. I couldn’t remember a time not being at school, and I wanted to experience a side of life where the schedule was completely determined by me. I went back...

1) Hi Samaya, can you tell us what you’ve been up to since graduating in 2017?  It’s strange to think that I’ve been away from TGS for three years already. After moving around so much with TGS it did take a bit of adjusting to settle into one place, but I’ve now made London a home. I’m in the final year of my undergraduate law degree at King’s College London...

1) Hi Yada, can you tell us what you’ve been up to since graduating in 2014? A lot of exploring and a lot of humbling experiences. For the past four years, I have been working towards degrees in computer science and mathematics at Wellesley College. I actually came into college as a creative writer, but realized engineering is a way to actually build the worlds that I wrote about. I’ve...

Beaches, reefs, mountains, and rainforests became a classroom for students as they became familiar with the beliefs, practices, and traditions shaping modern Sabah. Students attended hands-on sessions during the term with four prevalent ethnicities: Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Indigenous....

Sabah is playing the role of a “classroom” for 34 international students as they spend two months learning about the State’s diversity and acquiring fresh experiences that they may incorporate into their lives back home. The students, aged between 15 and 17, are from the New York-based Think Global School – the world’s first traveling high school.

Before joining TGS, I completed a Master's degree where I researched contextual learning and focused on adolescent psychology during my undergraduate education.

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...

Tattooing is the most misunderstood art form in Japan today. Looked down upon for centuries and rarely discussed in social circles, people with tattoos are outcasts in this country, banned from most public spaces such as beaches, bathhouses, and even gyms. Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

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...
