| April 6, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Think Global School (TGS), conceptualised in San Francisco, has been launched in Sweden. By the time they graduate from the private non-profit high school, students will have lived in 12 different countries. They will also be information technology gurus, as advanced communication technology will be at the core of the curriculum.

The first year will take the students to Stockholm, then Sydney, Australia; Beijing, China; and Hong Kong. Year two will include Santiago, Chile; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Berlin, Germany. As juniors and seniors, the students will study in Vancouver, Canada; Barcelona, Spain; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Amman, Jordan; Bangalore, India; and finally Washington DC, USA. In Sweden, public high school Young Business Creatives, which specialises in global business education, will host TGS.

A unique, digital educational social network will allow TGS students to connect with one another, their teachers, families, friends and inner-city partner classrooms in real time around the world. The new school kicked off with ninth grade students. Each year following that, another grade will be added until there are four classes. Pupils will engage in a rigorous academic programme that adheres to both the International Baccalaureate programme and USA curriculum standards.
