Our school was built in 1966 by Kazım Taşkın, who was known by the nickname of Gazali Kazım, the benevolent citizen of Tarsus. The entire school spreads on a 4000 m2 area. The school location and field cost 285.000 Turkish Liras. On September 12, 1966, 5 classrooms were opened (1966-1967 academic year), with 10 branches, 10 teachers and 397 students.
Due to lack of good control of the school construction and lack of the material used, it had become impossible to remain here in a short time. A total of 2 years of teaching was possible. At the beginning of the 1968-1969 academic year, a triple instruction was made to Şehit İshak Primary School and the same school was held in the 1969-1970 academic year. On 11.02.1971, a new school building with 5 classrooms was built by the state in the old school’s garden. As a result of the drought, dam construction and earthquake in the east, the need for a school has been growing and the need for school has not been met. In a short period of time, the number of students increased and triple instruction was compulsory. In this period, the second five-class section of the school directorate was carried out by the state in 1974 and returned to dual education in the 1974-1975 school year. When the building was inadequate, the foundation of a second new building was laid in 1999 and the new building was put into service on 23 April 2000.
In the 2010-2011 academic year, the normal education was passed.
In the 2017-2018 academic year, 28 branches and 5 kindergartens are continuing their education with a special education class. We have 574 students. We serve with 1 manager, 2 assistant managers, 36 permanent teachers and 1 permanent staff.
