HYDERABAD, September 2, 2013: World's only of its kind world travel school THINK Global School's search for a multicultural learning environment focused on local Indian culture, history and language for its students 5th semester abroad found what they were looking for at Indus International School Hyderabad. TGS is an International Baccalaureate World School that spends each semester in a different country with locations ranging from Boston, Amazon, Bhutan and Beijing.
The 27-acre campus of Indus offered TGS a safe and welcoming community from which the diverse learning environment of India can be explored.
