Faculty & Staff

The Bilkent Laboratory & International School faculty includes approximately 200 teachers from internationally diverse backgrounds.

Our teachers come from the United States, Canada, U.K., Australia, Jamaica, Syria, South Africa, Ireland, Spain, Nigeria, Singapore, Russia, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Philippines, Kazakhstan and Turkey. Many of our teachers have taught in a variety of countries throughout the world.

Many of our faculty hold Master’s Degrees and our relationship with Bilkent University allows teachers and administrators to pursue graduate degree programs. Research conducted by graduate students informs and improves our pedagogical practice.

Faculty members provide academic inspiration and personal attention to our students. This is a major focus of our school. The teachers at BLIS produce integrated curricula which enable them to work with each other in a collaborative manner.

In addition to their classroom duties, teachers and administrators coach sports teams, advise extracurricular activities, and give students extra help with coursework. Most importantly, every staff member takes an interest in each student as an individual.
