Ankara - School Report Question and Answers

Describe the physical education resources at the school. Is there a gym? A swimming pool? Are there playing fields or tennis courts available?

There is a small gym/multi-purpose room. The kids do a week of swimming but it is off campus. No playing fields but there is a tennis court at the embassy the kids use. It is a smaller and older school ... BUT, the biggest bonus are the woods. Ankara is not a forrested place, but the school sits in this amazing patch of woods and the kids get to spend a ton of time roaming through them. My oldest still misses his time building forts and making bases in those woods. - Oct 2019

There is a gym. The teacher is great. They have three sports, volleyball, basketball and soccer. There's no pool. The base has a gym which is also the school's gym, a running track and...actually that's about it. But it's not bad. The PE class focuses mainly on health and fitness so most kids are pretty well off and leave extremely fit, muscular, or something. - Sep 2016

On par with what we have seen in Fairfax County, VA. - Jul 2014
