HistoryEdit

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 110th anniversary in 2018 with a festival.
