THINK Global School is a non-profit private high school that offers teenagers a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. TGS students don't simply "study abroad." They immerse themselves in 12 countries over 4 years, studying with premier teachers, experts, and local guides. Imagine taking a biology class in the Galapagos Islands, a Mandarin class at the Great Wall of China, and a government class in the chambers of Swedish parliament!

The school's mission is to develop true citizens of the world, problem-solving and risk-taking young people who will become leaders in the multicultural and multilingual world of the 21st century. The student body is a miniature United Nations, representing over 20 countries of citizenship and a diverse range of talents, experiences, and interests.

The cultural exposure to each country's unique heritage and customs is coupled with the challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum to empower students with a curious heart, an open mind and a determination to succeed in their chosen careers.

At each international destination, a world-class partner school provides TGS students face to face interactions with local students through joint classes, workshops, and athletic events. This innovative "traveling school" model helps teenagers develop cultural literacy, critical thinking, and the courage to challenge the status quo.
