The name “Seoul Middle School” was reportedly the idea of students from the Korean Studies Department in Ankara University. During the Korean War in the 1950s, the Turkish military had joined South Korea’s side to fight against North Korea. Not only had they provided military support but also helped the country build educational infrastructure by founding a school for Korean wartime orphans that were robbed of the opportunity to explore their academic potentials. The school that was established by the Turkish military was given the name “Ankara School.” This time, the school offered by the Korean government to Turkey was named after the South Korean capital, Seoul.
