Once upon a time, there was a photographer who traveled the globe, snapping stills of the magic that takes place in the backdrop of our busy lives. She had a son who she brought with her to more countries than I can name off the top of my head. In the process, she gave him the opportunity to learn from a world of no borders, a world of multi-cultures, a place where the differences represent the similarities and where nature organically translates the everyday into things for which to be truly grateful.
When it came time to pick a school where her son could continue his education in a more formal setting, she realized that formality came with limitation. The physical walls that so often compose a classroom represented restrictions and limitations that were not present in the global classes her son had the privileged of attending thus far. So…the wheels started turning…and THINK Global School began.
The world’s first global high school. 12 trimesters in 12 countries. Technology that connects students with teachers with mentors with the world. It’s an honor and a privilege to be part of a movement that will empower the incredibly fortunate young minds who will embark upon a path of education that truly represents the global mind to which we all contribute each and every time we click our mouse, google a word, post a blog entry, or even watch a video. THINK Global School is the best example I’ve seen of expanding the concept of education to create a new school of limitless possibility.
Have a look for yourself, and see what you think.
