The primary task of education and training institutions is to provide children and young people with the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to achieve their place in the community life and to help them to develop their personalities. So much so that, the expected thing from these institutions is to pioneer in terms of the opportunity to transmit graphic design and information accurately with web sites as well. However, in the web sites of many secondary schools some problems are being identified in terms of graphic design (use of wrong and ugly typography, impractical layout and redirection design, unrelated visual elements and color). In this research, the web interface designs made by some selected secondary schools will be examined in terms of content, site navigation and accessibility, page layout, typography and readability, visual elements and the use of color, and the framework for a successful design of a web interface will be determined with regards to graphic design.
