India, we have arrived. After a long journey, some lost luggage and jet lag, I am pleased to announce that we have arrived safely at the Indus International School in Hyderabad. Excitement and anxiety fill the air as we jump in feet first and embark on this incredible journey. That being said, a journey would not be complete if it did not involve a wave of arrivals spanning twenty-four hours, a few...

  Each year a variety of locations are proposed and considered as host cities for a THINK Global School term, and each year India's most interesting cities have received strong consideration. This August, India will become an exotic reality as we make our way to Hyderabad for four months. India's fourth largest city isn't as well known as Calcutta or Mumbai, so let's take a look at what makes Hyderabad...

  It's hard to believe that it has been almost a full year since our students packed up their belongings to begin their school year in Argentina's sprawling capital, Buenos Aires. The giddy anticipation that overtakes you before visiting a new location is one of the wonderful things about studying at TGS, and this year our students had quite a lot to look forward to. Under the supervision of our...

The following post was written by Global Studies teacher Nick Martino and originally appeared on his blog Defenders of Ma'at.   Last month members of the TGS staff organized an adventure into the wild to provide a leadership and character building activity for our students. Each student was given the choice between ocean kayaking or hiking during the four day trip with the amazing Chewonki Foundation, who have been leading...

At this time three weeks ago, we were packing up our backpacks or kayaks and beginning an adventure outside of the confounds of the Chewonki Foundation campus in Maine. Judging from the smiles and animated storytelling upon our reunion, I feel confident in saying that everyone learned a lot about themselves and each other during the trip. Our goal for the trip was for the students to engage in a...

With our 2012-13 school year sadly drawing towards its end, we can now gleefully reminisce on all that our students and faculty accomplished as they made their way across three continents. Our academic adventure began in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and to commemorate his experiences in the "Paris of the South," Global Studies teacher Nick Martino recently launched an iTunes U course entitled "Understanding the Argentine Identity." Understanding the Argentine Identity...

The following opinion piece was written by Global Studies teacher Nick Martino and originally appeared on his blog Defenders of Ma'at. Why was 9/11 so important in the psyche of Americans, specifically New Yorkers?   We don’t get attacked. We attack others. We rarely lose. Wars aren’t fought on our home turf. We don’t live in fear.   Former Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, stated, “Freedom from...

My goal for our visit to the USS Massachusetts was to use it as a weXplore trip that would benefit all TGS students. Students in Mr. Cailey's IB History class, for instance, have been studying war strategies used in World War II, so getting a chance to spend the night aboard a battleship that was involved in the Allied Island Hopping Campaign would be a perfect opportunity to further their...

If you don’t know who Lucy Alibar is yet, you should. Not because she wrote the extraordinarily imaginative and moving film, Beasts of the Southern Wild. Not because her film was nominated for four Academy Awards, and not because director Benh Zeiltin turns a rural Louisiana fishing marina into a place where anyone feels instantly at home. You should know who Lucy Alibar is because she represents a new generation...

Term One is officially in the books! Our CM1 community was based in Sabah, Malaysia's capital city of Kota Kinabalu, which serves as a gateway to the island's many natural splendors. 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. They live and study in a different country every semester, engaging in place-based and project-based learning pertinent to the nations they visit.

Outside of the educational space, I enjoy music, dancing, yoga, card games,...

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...

 Hi Andy, tell us a bit about yourself. I grew up in the beautiful industrial city of Birmingham, and after a career in mental health work and various bits and bobs, I qualified to become a teacher. 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...

Another school year is coming to a close at THINK Global School, which means graduation is right around the corner for the Class of 2021. And while their academic experience was different than previous classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our graduates continually demonstrated the characteristics we value so much as a community: perseverance, continual improvement, a thirst for knowledge, and the practicing of environmentalism, to name a...

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...
