Üsküdar SEV Elementary and Middle School was founded by the Health and Education Foundation (SEV) in 1997 under the establishment of the American High Schools. The American High Schools in Turkey have an experience of excellence in education in Turkey dating back almost 150 years.
The school distinguishes itself because of its emphasis on providing an enriched academic program through an English-language learning environment that emphasizes arts and sports activities, active social activities provided by innovative staff, and the standard education that complies with Ministry of National Education requirements.
The philosophy of our school is to provide an education in line with Atatürk’s principles, encouraging lifelong learning, fostering essential skills and attitudes, developing pride in one’s own culture, praising tolerance and respect for differences, and cultivating students who have a near-native level of English.
English education at our school is not just a lesson; it is part of our bilingual educational environment and a natural way of communication. Our international teachers help lead activities that enrich our program by bringing their own cultural experiences to our school.
We consider our school clubs and community service activities to be an important instrument for supporting individual exploration and growth in our students. We value teaching our students citizenship skills so that they become productive members of a democratic society.
Teaching jobs in Istanbul provide teachers a unique opportunity to live and work at the intersection of Europe and Asia.
