The first Afghan Turk school was founded in 1995 in Sheberghan city in the then-proto state northern Afghanistan. Immediately after that, in the year 1996 the second Afghan Turk school was opened in Mazar-i-Sharif. During the Taliban era several other schools were established under the Afghan Turk chain of schools. But they specially flourished after the fall of Taliban and since then have succeeded to become one of the flagship educational institutions of the country.
