)-- The school’s main campus in Houston, Texas is ranked 56 in the Top 100 High Schools in the United States by U.S. News & World Report, based on the College Readiness Index. The medical science-focused high school is named in honor of renowned heart surgeon and medical researcher of Lebanese origin, Dr. Michael E. DeBakey.
“As a new subscriber to Skoolee,” explains Charlesetta Deason, Ed.D., President and CEO, “I am looking forward to this educational software meeting the data management needs of Michael E. DeBakey High School. This software promises to serve as the tool we have been seeking. We are excited about the endless possibilities Skoolee will provide us.”
For Agnes Bell, DeBakey High School Principal, Skoolee Tools will be the front line administration and communication system to manage relations among all school stakeholders. “Integrating Skoolee technology into our educational program will allow us to enhance instruction, accountability, transparency, and communication between students, teachers, parents, and administrators,” she says.
Developed by White Mountain Technologies, Skoolee Tools is tailored for English, Arabic, and/or French requirements to support e-learning in private, international and progressive public schools in the Middle East and North Africa. The software integrates a school’s diverse functions and requirements and consolidates them into an efficient and coherent community.
“Technology,” Dr. Deason concludes, “is an essential educational tool in the 21st century. The appropriate educational technology will allow the school to maintain communication with all the school's stakeholders and provide seamless, in-time appropriate and accurate information required to parents. It will provide them an opportunity to become an informed participant and partner in their children's education.”
