Since opening in September 1996, with just over 200 students, ENKA Schools have moved from temporary quarters to its rapidly-expanding main campus on the Sadi Gülçelik Sports Site in Istinye. Now 1100+ students, from pre-school through grade twelve, commute daily from both the Asian and European sides of the Bosphorus to come to school every day. We have had our first graduating class and now have students attending excellent universities overseas as well as in Turkey.
ENKA Schools are incorporated as a private institution subject to the laws and regulations of the Turkish Ministry of Education. While the ENKA Foundation has made a substantial contribution necessary to create and sustain capital investment, the school itself exists as an independent non-profit corporation directed by an unsalaried Executive Committee. The school is expected to generate sufficient income to be self-supporting in its day-to-day operations.
The current program uses both the Turkish and English languages as media of instruction. A bilingual professional community is fostered within the school through language instruction for teachers as well as students. In 2005 the school was authorised to offer both PYP and DP programmes of the International Baccalaureate. These are used in conjunction with the MEB programmes and provide our students with the best of Turkish and international education.
ENKA Schools exist to further the moral, physical, and intellectual development of children. Individuals prosper best within a caring, supportive, and respectful community. Our educational program emphasizes student-centered, independent learning. It help students to develop intellectual discipline through inquiry in which they employ their knowledge and academic skills. It teaches students to take responsibility for their actions and to make plans for their own learning. We create learning environments and provide resources that promote curiosity, investigation, and discovery. Students, teachers, and parents are encouraged to participate in the life and mission of the schools, forming a community dedicated to a lifetime of learning and service.
