schools in alanya

Hi there!
We are going to move to Alanya during next summer, minimum a year, if everything works out,we might stay permanently. I would like to know more about the schools there, my sons are 7 and 8 years, and our 15 year old daughter. Do any of you have experience regarding schools? Thank you!

Re: schools in alanya

I've recently returned to the UK after 14 years in Turkey, primarily because of the failing education system.

Some people won't agree with me but I would urge you to investigate the education system fully before making any decisions.

I would argue with you Charlotte that I have just sent my daughter to a middle term private school in TR and very cheaply compared to the UK and consider the standard of education much higher than UK.
I can compare as have had the (unusual) experience of 2 kids going thru the full education system in the UK and now a Grandchild just starting 2ndry school there.

Re: schools in alanya

Yes I know how you feel about it Stuart and you have every right to share your opinion, but I am experiencing the UK education system now and both my daughters and I are very happy we made the move.
Each to their own I guess; the links I'm posting are for information only.

Re: schools in alanya

I am glad your move has been successful Charlotte and wish you and your daughter all the best with their future, I admire your decision and carrying it through, could not have been an easy move.
To me its been obvious that you have not been happy with the way things are in TR, not just the education and wanted out.
My daughter lives in the SE of England and says all the 2ndry schools in her area are terrible and was lucky enough with a lot of work involved to get her daughter into a RC funded school other wise she was going to have to go private at enormous expense.
My youngest daughter has just started middle school in Fethiye, I am very impressed with the curriculum, though they do work a lot harder the UK schools and cover more subjects. They start at 9 and get out 5.30 though this does cover supervised homework which is a huge relief for me.
It is a private school as I don't think the public schools here are as good. But fees at around 4k a year are nothing compared with UK equivalent.
The main thing for me is that she is happy, learning and enjoying life in a relatively safe environment. If that changes than I will look elsewhere Uk included.

PS I don't believe a lot of the bull**** published in the Torygraph and others especially these surveys they do. so according to them Korea and Finland are top! i didn't even know they had universities.

Re: schools in alanya

Stuart,

Yes, well I'm lucky that I had the option of finding an outstanding school and building our new life around it.

I'm glad you've decided to go private, and 4k sounds like a bargain (I'm sure it wouldn't cost less than 20,000tl for middle school in Izmir) I hope your daughter remains happy and well educated, but not everyone has that choice either in Turkey. There are plenty of small Anatolian village schools stuck out in the middle of nowhere where simple things like having enough paper/ink for printing and heating fuel in the winter is an issue.
Turkey spends the second least amount on education (per student) in the OECD countries.

Hi,
There are 4 or 5 private schools; Bahcesehir, TED, ÍHEP, etc. As far as I know only Bahcesehir offers an international programme.

Re: schools in alanya

Hı sari75. Its 6 months since you have started this thread and not been on ıt so you might have given up,who knows.I only know of the schools ın Alanya through frİends that send their children. From 9 up to a 18 yr old.They all send them to gov schools and have not got a good word to say about them.Last week my friends 14 yr old was sent home from school as the teacher hurt her foot in the playground and will be off for 10 days,so those kids are off as well. Seemingly they don't do supply teachers so when a teacher ıs off so are the kıds.Lıvıng here for the past 4 and half yrs I wouldnt send any kıds to these schools.Lıke Stuart says, Prıvate ıs the way to go.Good luck.
