He loved his school from the first moment he entered the door. My favorite parts of this school are the sincerity and freedom you feel as you enter the door. They really treat and evaluate each student separately. The founder of the school, Sümeyye Hanım, is an incredibly sweet person, she is open to all kinds of crazy ideas, negative or positive criticism. It is a school where you will not feel the business mentality at all.
METHODS WE APPLY
We have taken extra care to provide only natural and organic food for our students. Children will have the opportunity to also learn to cook selected meals they like by themselves. We are also a school that will take any allergies our students have seriously.
All our furniture is made of natural wood and has been especially treated with a chemical-free process for the safety and benefit of our students. All flooring is also made of natural, anti-bacterial material.

One difficult thing is to choose the most suitable teachers who believe in the mission of education and are capable of supporting our children to the maximum. One more difficult thing is to develop and enhance their performance day after day in a continuous improvement process. The most difficult challenge is to maintain that team and keep them motivated and passionate about their sacred mission.

What Do Our Parents Think Of Us?
An international school with more than 24 different nationalities
There are never two identical fingerprints, same goes for human beings. Each one of our kids is a different, unique story. Therefore, education is not about producing copies of the same standard student. Everyone of us has his own unique personality interwoven from different set of colours, tastes and shapes. Everyone of us has his own recipe of traits, hobbies, skills, ways of thinking or expressing, likes and dislikes, or let us call them his/her “languages”. Everyone of us has a unique destination where he/she will, and should, excel and innovate.
Our Staff are coming from diverse cultural backgrounds. Our leaders are characterised by multidisciplinary experiences. Our minds believe in uniqueness of each student. Our methods use interactive learning strategies. Our thoughts are about children centred learning. Our plan is focused on children having daily opportunities to learn actively with their hands, minds, and emotions. Our teachers are monitoring; Our parents are sharing; Our community is involved. We do believe that the education process should be continuous in the classes, corridors, playgrounds, food courts, way to home and in everywhere kids could be in or dream of. So we planned and designed our school to be the best place for creativity for each child in the group.
Our mission at uNiK Koleji is to support our kids through their lifelong discovery journey exploring their destinations; to consolidate their key skills and traits; and to help master their set of “languages.” One day, if the right path is trodden, our kids’ dreams will come true and absolute happiness will be achieved.
To promote innovative solutions , inspire actions that create positive, sustainable future for children. While children need stimulating learning environments that provide the knowledge and skills, they need to tackle the challenges of this century.
Our curriculum includes everything we do both in and outside of the classroom. Our perspective on education, reflected in our curriculum, is that we are not filling a bucket, but rather lighting a fire. We cannot possibly teach everything that there is to be learned. Thus, we endeavor to teach students to “learn how to learn” by giving them the skills to do so. Most importantly, we aim to instill in our students a love of learning as a passionate pursuit in and of itself. Our curriculum is centered on teaching our students how to take control of their own learning. We focus on teaching students to ask the right questions and be confident searching for answers. By developing “critical skills” in our students, we prepare them for their journey as learners for the rest of their lives. Students are welcomed into an environment that is engaging, challenging, inspiring, and nurturing. Learning experiences are created that foster inspiration, promote the development of a core set of academic skills and learning habits, and that encourage students to ask questions, explore and identify their core values and passions. Based on the slogan “inspiring leaders of change”, and trying to apply our school’s mission and vision, we designed our curriculum that is seeking for helping our students to achieve wisdom. That is why our work was mainly directed to build our learner’s personality through developing the seven aspects of:
▪ Knowledge & Thoughts
▪ Language & Communication
▪ Attitude & Ethics
▪ Roles & Responsibilities
▪ Strength & Health
▪ Crafts & Skills
▪ Habits & Tidiness.
