Dear Ankara Elementary/High School Family,

Merhaba and welcome to the Ankara Elementary/High School (AEHS) website. The purpose of this webpage is to provide parents, students, and our school community with simple access to a variety of information about Ankara Elementary, Middle and High School programs, policies, and activities.
Ankara Elementary/High School is a fantastic place to teach and learn! Our teachers are committed to high-quality, student-centered learning experiences focused on the individual and diverse needs of each child. We are striving daily to be creative and innovative in our instruction to engage students in their learning through our “Write to Learn” school wide strategy, a variety of STEAM activities, applications of technology, and 21st Century learning skills.

This year DoDEA celebrates 75 years of educational support to military-connected families – empowered by the resourcefulness, dedication and focused optimism of the men and women who established and operated schools in the aftermath of World War II.  The world has changed dramatically since our system began; however, the spirit of our teachers and administrators is the same now as it was then — infused to the core with determination and innovation.

Ankara Elementary/High School, located in Ankara, Turkey, serves approximately 190 students. Our school community has a long-standing tradition of excellence in academics. As a district, we are committed to our mission to “Educate, Engage, and Empower military-connected students to succeed in a dynamic world”. Our primary goal at AEHS is to help all students achieve their dreams and find success in pursuing life goals as lifelong learners. Every teacher and staff member here is absolutely committed to providing the best possible educational program to all our students.

Go Trojans!
