Onder Ata Primary School is located in Ankara, Turkey.
There are 5 kindergarten classrooms, 31 elementary school classrooms (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades), and 1 special education class in our school. All classes are mixed and consist of approxximately 25 students. The average number of students in our school is 850 (5-10). There are 39 teachers and 3 administrators in educational services.
The socio-economic level of the students is low. Many students cannot participate in activities other than social and cultural activities of the school because of economic obstacles and
low level of parental education.
In the 2014-2016 academic year, we coordinated a Comenius project consisting of 5 partner countries: 'The World Is Our Playground, Let's Play Together.' Thanks to this project, 'teaching with games' is integrated into our curriculum. I

We are an educational institution with extensive experience in European Union projects.
