Al Manar International School is located in a place that is easy to access in Istanbul. It has been founded two years ago adopting the American Curriculum where teachers are qualified to teach all students from different levels Kg – 12. In our school, we do believe in applying the vision and mission statements which are:
“Developing well rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential in a learning supportive environment.
Our mission is based on the 4 C’s: Critical Thinking – Confidence – Communication and Creativity. In our school, there is a computer lab with an adequate number of computers where IT lessons are given to the students. Besides, there is a big library full of educational books from different genres such as “Adventure stories – novels – science fiction and so on….. That is for the ground floor. As for the first floor, there is an administrative office where board of trustees hold meetings and issue decrees. To the other side, there is a conference room where students meet and enjoy watching videos and performance related to their study subjects. In the middle of the first floor, there are enough tables for students where they might sit and enjoy their break time. Near the stairs of the first floor, there is a principal assistant’s office which is the most vital part of the school where all students are allowed to enter to discuss their problems and provide their suggestions, if any. Right to the opposite side, there is students’ affairs office. Up to the second floor, there is a teachers’ room and some classes for lower grades. Besides, there a chemistry lab where students can apply some chemical equations. To the third floor, there are also some classes for the upper grades and the principal office where all students’ profiles are kept. Right in the middle of the third floor, there is a physics lab for making some experiments. There is also an art room full of materials useful for students to draw and paint.
