Ankara Atatürk Lisesi was first established in 1886 as Ankara İdadisi.[1] The school changed its name several times throughout its history: it was known as Ankara İdadisi (1886–1908), Ankara Sultanisi (1908–24), Ankara Erkek Lisesi (1924–38), and Ankara Atatürk Lisesi (1938–present). It is also known by the name "Taş Mektep".[citation needed]

The school was rebuilt in 1937–38 by the German architects Bruno Taut[2] and Franz Hillinger.[3]
