About Us
We are parents who believe in personalizing education for our children’s needs and interests. When our search for a school that provided this fell short, we took action to develop a school with a completely unique offering: a truly personalized, child-led and academically challenging learning environment in İstanbul. Envisioned as the ideal learning environment based on current developmental research and the best that we could imagine for our own children, we are making bold decisionswith the child in mind and striving for a new paradigm of education.

We believe that school fees should be reinvested in the school to recruit talented teachers, to genuinely invest in their professional development and to enrich the educational program, materials and facilities. We are inviting families who genuinely believe that this is the future of education, not those who cling to a belief that a school has to have 40-min lessons, homework, exams and entirely teacher-led content. We see school as a place where children can truly focus on learning by following their passions, delve deeper into what they are interested in, and where curiosity and creativity are nurtured. Capitalizing on our experience with a cooperative Montessori preschool in Istanbul, we bring a strong vision and know-how as well as a realistic understanding of our challenges. Our ultimate goal is to bring teachers, administrators, parents and children together around shared values to build an engaging learning community where we all grow. We hope you’ll join us on this journey.
