Many students dream of taking time off of school to travel. But at this high school, traveling is school.
THINK Global School takes high school students traveling through nine countries over the course of three years. While moving from country to country every three to six months, they take International Baccalaureate (IB) courses that allow them to still graduate on time with a competitive high school diploma. This means that students can quite literally have class on one side of the world one week, and on an entirely different corner of the globe the next. An example itinerary from the 2011- 2012 school year: Cuenca (Ecuador) in the fall, Chiang Mai (Thailand) in the winter, and Berlin (Germany) in the spring. Grade levels are capped at around fifteen students, and the entire student body represents over twenty different countries.
