Baku "Dede Gorgud" Private Turkish High School (Azerbaijani: Bakı "Dədə Qorqud" Özəl Türk Liseyi) was one of the similar high schools in Azerbaijan run by Çağ Öyrətim İşlətmələri A.O. which was owned by the Azerbaijani state-owned oil and natural gas corporation of SOCAR. The school was established in Corat settlement of Sumgayit city in 1993, one year after the first high school of the company in Azerbaijan. Primarily it was named Sumgayit Private Technical High School. In 1999, the school moved to Baku under its current name.
