Himmet Çondur Cumhuriyet Ortaokulu

Himmet Çondur Cumhuriyet Ortaokulu,  a medium sized secondary school with 450 students and 40 staff, is located in the west of Turkey in a city called Aydın, where olive oil runs down from its mountains and honey comes out of its fields, to where people migrate from both eastern Turkey and Western European countries because of its wonderful nature, history, organic products and relaxing lifestyle.

Germencik, the town the school is located in, is an immigration area and 60% of the students consists of these families’ children, many of them from socially deprived backgrounds, setting the school’s inclusiveness rate way above the national average.

Hasan Fatma Önal Anadolu Lisesi

Hasan Fatma Önal Anatolian High School is a secondary school that was founded in 2005. It is located on the outskirts of Kusadasi , on the Western shore of Turkey. The school currently has 348 students between 9th and 12th grades. The students are being educated under the national curriculum of the Ministry of Education and most of them are included in the group that can be classified as economically and socially disadvantaged. They are between the ages of 15-19 and they significantly suffer from lack of motivation and key competences in both their daily lives and educational lives mostly resulting from their ages. Considering the attainments that they are supposed to get from school, this lack of motivation and key competences create a significant obstacle and, sometimes, school dropouts. The socio-economic conditions of the students are also in the low-middle class. In addition, due to the fact that the town is a favorite tourist destination, their parents work for long hours during the summer months, there are too many broken families and some of the students work in different touristic facilities during summer. This condition inevitably causes further lack of motivation at school and may sometimes result in early school leaving.
