Dual Curriculum Program: 

Kilittaşı Schools implement the Canadian Curriculum for all the English Language Arts, French as a second language and all of the branch lessons. The Turkish Ministry of National Education’s (MNE) curriculum is implemented for the other subject areas.

The curriculum offers clear target outcomes and skill achievements at each grade level. Both programs ensure that the students acquire the necessary learning outcomes and skills at their appropriate grade levels.

The purpose of primary school education is to encourage and support students by creating awareness about different areas of arts and literature.
During secondary school education, students are encouraged to develop their autonomy. Both curriculums and our school’s approach support our student’s growth throughout their secondary education.

Students are provided with a comfortable environment to discuss various age-appropriate topics in order to form independent opinions. They are encouraged to make autonomous decisions and take on responsibilities.
