The Turkish “Maaref” School begins its first academic year


The number of students registered at the Turkish Knowledge School in the Jordanian capital, Amman, which was officially opened about 10 days ago, reached approximately 200 students, with the start of the first semester in the Kingdom.

This came according to what the representative of the Turkish Knowledge Endowment in Jordan, Veysi Kaya, said on Sunday.

Kaya said, “Jordan is one of the most important countries in the region in the field of education, especially private education, and what we want from establishing this school is to strengthen educational relations between the two countries and the two peoples.”

He added, “We also want to benefit from the education experience in Jordan, and at the same time exchange our experience with them as well.”

He added: “The goal of establishing the Knowledge Endowment in 2016 was to organize the educational process outside Turkey. All schools around the world now bear the same name, which is the Knowledge School.”


For his part, the general director of the school, Levant Ongel, said: “We began receiving applications for registration on the third of this month, and today the number of students has reached approximately 200 students.”

He added: “We teach the Jordanian national curriculum from nursery to high school, and the school is accredited by educational authorities in Turkey and allows its students to complete their studies there according to the Turkish educational system, and they are the most likely to obtain Turkish scholarships.”

Ongel stated that they have 35 male and female teachers in all specializations, in addition to the Turkish language teacher, noting that the school includes all the basic facilities that provide students with an appropriate educational environment.

In April 2018, the Maaref Endowment Residence was established in Jordan. It is considered one of the largest and most important Turkish institutions in the Arab countries and accommodates approximately 300 male and female students.
