Affordable English Based Schools In Turkey

I am from Pakistan. Currently living in Pakistan and planning to move to Turkey along with my family. We may settle in Istanbul, Antalya or Izmir depending upon the living cost. Cost of children education is our primary concern so far. I have three children. Eldest son is of 11 years and in 6th grade, middle son is of 6 years and in 2nd grade and youngest daughter is 5 years old and in 1st grade of school. I need some information about school admissions in turkey. I have knowledge that Turkish public schools are Turkish language only. I also know that there are schools offering teaching in English but are very expensive. I need some information. Any help would highly be appreciated.

How foreigner's children cope up with the language problem if they join public schools?

Is there any schools offering education in English with affordable fee structures? How minimum fee can go?


Goverment schools in Turkey unfortunately are poor in Education and also there is nobody can speak in English too. Of course they teach foreign languages but none of students can speak it.
As you said that Private school in Turkey are very expensive, the cheapest one price for one year 30.000-40.000 TL / 1 US Dollar =  5.7 TL

Cheapest and common one : Doğa Koleji

You can find information about Ministry of Education 2010 Circular (Foreign Students) … Genelgesi_(Yabancı_Uyruklu_Öğrenciler)

International Schools in Istanbul are not cheap but then again International Schools are hardly ever cheap in any country. Having said that i have done my fair share of research on this matter as i have two school going children of my own.

1. Istanbul American School (AdavcedED curiculum) - located in Başakşehir
2. Istanbul International School (Cambridge) - located in Üskudar (Asian Side)

These are not cheap but are definitely good schools. Hope this helps.


Hi Faisal
I am not if you are interested Ankara but SINAV high school in Ankara has added recently English brand for international students.
I found it very reasonable fee when I contacted although it's English language website isn't updated yet.   OR

I would love to know if there are any good English-based schools in Konya - any suggestions, recommendations welcome!  I'm having a hard time trying to find any info online.  Thanks.

Hello, how are you? Did you find a school at a suitable price? I am also looking. Please reply. I wish you a happy day

Hi there. Can anyone suggest about the schools in Antalya? We are moving from Malaysia and the kids (9 and 3) currently study at International schools. We are interested in any schools (public/private/international) where the medium of instruction is English and approx. 15000-20000 TL a year. I currently receive education subsidy for them which possibly won't be an option in Antalya. Therefore we won't be able to afford expensive schooling.
Any advice will be really appreciated.


You can call me with ***
I will help you about that.
