• We believe that all children have the right to learn and prosper in a safe, warm and inclusive environment. We focus on the complete physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing of each child. To develop the highest potential in your child, we recognize the need of a harmonious balance between academic guidance and creative expression.

• We are aware of the interest parents have in health and nutrition when it comes to their children’s diets. At Kilittaşı Schools, we like to see it as our job to take the same amount of care as a parent would when addressing their children’s dietary needs. We believe that the best way to educate a child is to model healthy eating habits, and we are dedicated to educating students about healthy foods, choices and lifestyles. Food diversity is very important to the Kilittaşı Schools diet, which is why children will experience a wide variety of traditional Turkish as well as international food.

• All of our students are also expected to follow the code of conduct both in and outside of the school at all times.
