20 Years Full of Enthusiasm For Education...

Having been a principled and student-centered school that internalizes national and global values, Işıkkent School is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

We have worked very hard for 20 years to be a model for the Turkish Education System and to inspire educators and all stakeholders in education sector. We have become the one & only school in the Aegean Region and the 7th school in Turkey to implement IB programmes from preschool to the end of high school.

We have felt the joy of seeing that our values and efforts made a difference in our children’s future for the last 20 years.

We have strived, and will continue to strive, to raise our children as confident, responsible and reflective individuals who know how to inquire and communicate effectively, recognize global problems, and respect the similarities and differences between others.
