As Turkish Language and Literature department we apply IB, DP program’s approach and Turkish Ministry and Educations’ (MEB) program together for all our classes starting from preperation to 12th grades. We aim our students to be international-intellectual minded, inquirer, respectful, principled, self motivated, co-operative and self evaluative.
