Sara Polat


Sara believes that a good education is the backbone of any well-rounded and successful adult, therefore the best way for parents to invest in their child’s future is education.
Before joining KEY Education, she worked as a corporate communications and marketing manager in various global companies. Over the course of her 15+ year career, she has developed the ability to create, develop and manage successful business opportunities in multicultural, competitive, and fast paced environments and has consistently demonstrated creative thinking, communication and teamwork abilities.
She was always passionate about education, but after having a child, she has become highly interested in the developments and new approaches in the education sector. She gives extra importance to know the child’s needs and finding the best school that fits.
As a parent who had experienced private school admission processes first hand, as well as helping many other friends in their private school admissions journeys, she is looking forward to sharing her knowledge with KEY’s families.
