Our school started education as “Maarif College” in 1975-76 period when it was first opened. Same period, it was converted into an “Anatolian High School”.
At that time, our school was the only Anatolian High School in the region and attracted students from the surrounding provinces.
Although its official name was” Anatolian High School“, the name” Adana Anatolian High School ” was settled during the period and then became official.
In 1982-83, the jersey of the High School men’s volleyball team was redesigned by students and “ALA” applied on the Jersey, has taken its place in history and hearts, being accepted as the arms of our school.
Adana Anatolian High School started teaching on October 15, 1975 in the historical mansion with a two-storey garden in the Resatbey neighborhood, which Musa Balli allocated as a school.
