Congratulations, Class of 2021!

We’re pleased to share this year’s graduating class: 22 incredible individuals, spanning two cohorts, whose personalities are as unique as their TGS experiences. Yet, for all of their wonderful differences, each is united in having left an enduring mark on their educators, our school’s culture, and, most importantly, each other.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this class, perhaps more than any other, embody the THINK Global School core values of grit and ubuntu. Their THINK Global School experience likely wasn’t what they were expecting, but they should be commended for embracing the realities of the pandemic and still managing to build a profound sense of community from their homes around the world.

So without further ado, we present to you the Class of 2021!
