Private Schools - Istanbul

Bosphorus International Schools
 Private schools offer the Department of National Education curriculum. They are supervised by that department's inspectors, and employ teachers trained and licensed by the state.

Before choosing a private institution, collect information from your friends and relations, write to a few schools and make appointments with the principals. The fees they charge will not necessarily translate into teaching quality.

There is a general private school examination for Turkish residents and this exam determines which of the schools the children may attend. Each child makes a list of the schools in order raning from their first to last choice and the points they receive determines their future school.

This is not applicable to foreigners but a general exam to determine the level of foreign students is customary.

Rather, other than Turkish Grammar, Literature and Social Studies lessons all curriculum is in a foreign language. Please simply check with these schools for entrance conditions and fees.
