Founded in 1886, Saint Michel French High School has a rich history, soon celebrating its 125th year in September 2011. In September 1886, the founders established an institution that provided part time education at Beyoğlu Pera, near Galatasaray High School and named it Saint-Michel.

The efforts to achieve an equivalent level of education with the schools in France, particularly in terms of literature, science and business, made Saint Michel an ideal institution for families with youth being considered for future placement in government agencies, or having interest in business and industry. In 1936, Saint-Michel College was moved to a more quiet neighborhood, Feriköy where the primary school building was located. Consequently, the current Saint-Michel High School was formed following the union of Saint-Michel College with the primary school.

 Saint-Michel French High School became the first mixed high school among the French schools in Turkey by accepting girl students. Saint-Michel belongs to an association of schools applying Lasallian philosophy, originating in France in 1680 with multiple institutions across the world today. Saint-Joseph High Schools in İstanbul and İzmir (Turkey) also belong to this association.

Compotency In Two Foreign Languages (French And English)
The importance of high school education is linearly proportional to its effect on university and occupational life. A young adult starting university and then professional life with compotency in two foreign languages will have greater advantage over his/her peers who don’t know any foreign languages. All students educated in our high school are competent both in French and English at the time of their graduation.

Opportunity Of Higher Education Abroad Equivalent With French Bachelor's Degree
An equivalent graduate standard with French bachelor’s degree provides an opportunity for direct application to public universities in France and Europe for Saint Michel High School graduates. This opportunity for having education abroad is a great advantage for our students.

Additionally, Saint Michel French High School was ranked as the 4th best high school in Istanbul by achieving a success rate of 94% in the university entrance exams, according to the 2009-2010 İstanbul public education data.
