Kabataş Erkek Lisesi or Kabataş High School (Ottoman Turkish: Kabataş Mekteb-i İdâdisi) is one of the oldest and most prominent high schools in Turkey. It is located in Ortaköy at Bosphorus in Istanbul.

History[edit]

The high school was established in 1908 by the Ottoman sultan Abdulhamid II. During the Balkan Wars, Kabataş sent numerous students to the battlefront. In early years, only boys were educated at the high school. However, as of 1994, girls have also been admitted to the school.

Kabataş High School celebrated its 106th anniversary in 2014 with a festival.
