MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
Hello, I am Derya Halil Kaya. I am a classroom teacher from the X generation. For 35 years, my focus has been on education, teaching, children, and serving my country. I began my career in a public school. However, thinking that private schools offered more opportunities, I soon started teaching and managing at Akdeniz Koleji in Antalya. When due to the country’s circumstances, exam preparation became necessary in the form of prep schools, I continued to pursue my ideals by establishing my own prep school named “EKOL.” For 19 years, we prepared thousands of students for exams. But when circumstances changed, in 2014, I founded HAS Schools and continued my work in the education sector.
In all my endeavors, I have prioritized the personal development of children. This vision is upheld in our school as well. HAS Schools operates with a mission focused on nurturing children who achieve high success in life. Serving as a reflection of both Antalya and our country, HAS Schools brings together different nationalities, enhances academic achievement, and places significant emphasis on social activities. Furthermore, we adopt an approach that makes foreign language learning a way of life.
I evaluate the future of my country and my four sons in the same direction; I believe that by planning today and with my faith in education, we can make tomorrow better. I see that developed societies have reached civilization through education, and with this awareness, I embrace all our children.
With love and respect,
MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
I was born as the child of parents who are seven generations Antalya locals. Growing up in a civil servant family, I had the opportunity to travel to many different cities throughout my life. My interest in literature teaching began by reading numerous books, which allowed me to establish a close relationship with literature. Valuing learning as much as eating and drinking, I naturally chose the path of teaching. As someone who believes that the world is a place where we come together for change and improvement, I am guided by this belief.
This conviction shaped my life ideal and professional purpose, and for the past seven years of my 23-year career as an educator, I have been part of HAS Schools. From both student and teacher perspectives, I believe that we are on the path to creating a real school. As the world is a constantly evolving and changing place, I believe that a well-educated student should be able to speak at least two foreign languages as if they were their native language, possess adaptability, be skilled in productivity and technology. For a student raised at HAS Schools, it is important for them to develop and be supported individually, regardless of citizenship.
With our self-developed foreign language curriculum SMART, we aim to prepare our students for exams such as LGS-TYT-AYT-YDT-TOEFL, participate in talent and knowledge competitions, and nurture equipped, strong, and self-confident individuals. As a leader, I focus on leadership rather than management. Together with my team, I prioritize walking the same path, learning and teaching together. I value a life that is filled with opportunities for continuous learning, reading, and experiencing.
With the hope and ideal of a Turkey where education is shaped by educators, where there is vision, productivity, and a universal perspective, I offer my love and respect.
