Dr. Kemal Naci Ekşi Anatolian High School
Dr. Kemal Naci Ekşi Anatolian High School was founded in 1988, by the support of the Mayor of Bakırköy, Naci Ekşi. Since then it has been trying to be one of the best high schools in the district. It is located in Bağcılar, which is in European side of Istanbul. Istanbul is a world centre of great importance in the past and present. It embraces Asia on the one hand and Europe on the other. In Istanbul from ancient Hellenistic sites to modern-day architectural feats there are many magnificent historical buildings such as Bosphorus bridges, Topkapı Palace, Suleymaniye Mosque, Maiden Tower, Galata Tower. Dr. Naci Eksi is a 4-year-state school. The students are accepted according to their scores on a national exam. In our school there are 883 students and 51 teachers. Our mission is to raise individuals who think freely and express their ideas explicitly. In our school, besides German, the students have to study English for four years. Within this period, the students are expected to use the language by speaking, writing and listening. It’s very important to make them into the language itself and use it. Throughout the school year, the students improve their language as well as sportive, mathematical and social competences. Our school hasn’t participated any EU projects before, but some of our teachers took part in Comenius projects. We want the students to have an international vision, so we want to carry out EU projects.
