In the light of the principles and reforms of Atatürk and taking the statement “a school of learners” as a starting point, our vision is to form an example as a leading educational institution that hallmarks individuals who, by their significant contributions, will be guiding role models for humanity.
From kindergarten through primary and secondary education our aim is to promote students’ awareness of their social and national responsibility for upholding a democratic, secular republic; to empower their learning by encouraging intellectual exploration in the light of their uncovered individual interests and abilities. Always our aim is to be in touch with current thinking and latest educational development. Students will, therefore, acquire at least one foreign language and gain respect for the environment and awareness of the importance of their physical well-being. They will recognize the value of sports, music, and fine arts; have an international and intercultural perception of life; adopt universal values as they develop their qualifications academically for success in higher education and further.
