March Madness will begin in March and continue through April. This program is designed to improve the literacy across the whole school. We will focus on information text reading strategies for our middle and high school school students. Prizes and competitions will take place and all details have been discussed with students. Please encourage your child’s enthusiasm!
DeBakey High School – Qatar is now accepting applications for the 2016 – 2017 School Year! We are considering applications for grades 7 – 10 only. If you have any children or relatives who would like to be considered for next school year’s enrollment, now is the time to begin the application process.
A few requirements have changed for the next school year. Please visit the Admissions link located on the website for more information.
This is a reminder that our RenWeb system is an excellent tool for parents to use to keep track of their child’s academic performance in class.
The school will continue to send progress reports halfway through each cycle, but RenWeb allows ongoing access to student: grades, conduct, and tardy/absence recordings. Teacher contact information is also available through the RenWeb system. Please use the link below for directions on how to set up a Parent RenWeb account if you do not currently have access.
