OIS is housed in a spacious property nestled in the tranquil, suburban neighborhood of Incek Mahallesi in southwest Ankara. It is truly an “oasis,” set apart from the city center, yet located on a major road with convenient access to public transportation. Ankara (population of 5.4 million) is the capital city of Turkey. It is a modern city with many parks, museums, theaters, shopping malls, and opportunities for sports and arts. Ankara enjoys four distinct seasons, with warm, sunny summers and mildly snowy winters.
OIS is meeting the needs of Ankara’s international residents. OIS offers a full American education program for elementary, middle school and high school families who work in Ankara as businessmen, professional athletes, pilots, military personnel, diplomats, and embassy staff from about 70 different countries.
Our teachers (coming from 5 continents, most of whom are from the U.S.) are qualified, certified, and experienced. More importantly, each of them displays a love for teaching and a special care for each of their students. In addition to developing the students’ intellects, OIS strives to instill strong character within the heart of each child. Our aim is to educate each student in such a way as to produce the following results:
O – Outstanding Character
A – Academic Excellence
S – Servant Leadership
I – Intellectual Curiosity
S - Sportsmanship
OIS has dual accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We are also fully approved by the Turkish Ministry of Education.
