High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions is a medical secondary school located at Shenandoah Street in Houston, Texas, United States. It recently has been named the number one public high school in Houston by the Houston Chronicle and the Houston Press, a huge accomplishment for both the school and the district in belongs to. DeBakey, which serves grades 9 through 12, is a part of the Houston Independent School District, HISD and is located east of the Texas Medical Center, being the only HISD magnet high school for health professions. The school was named after Michael E. DeBakey, a famous heart surgeon. DeBakey does not automatically take in students from the surrounding neighborhood; thus, the surrounding neighborhood is zoned to Yates High School. Charlestta Deason is the Principal of the school.
As of 2005 to 2006 school year, the school was made up of 63 percent female and 37 percent male students. Of these, 36 percent were African American, 32 percent were Asian, 26 percent were Hispanic, 0 percent was Native American, and 6 percent were White. Every year, only around half of the students accepted into the school as a freshman actually graduate as a senior.
The school offers more than twenty-five clubs for its diverse population. Most notable clubs are BSU, Black Student Union and VISA, Vietnamese International Student Association for the school's two largest ethnic populations, while other clubs such as the BETA club, a club in which a student can only get into if he or she gets honor roll for his or her freshman year first cycle grade, and honor roll for his or her semester average following, are extremely known and respected. One other noticeable club is HOSA, Health Occupation Students of America, which usually competes with fellow sister school Hightower High School, and is currently attended by one-thirds of the student body at Debakey High School.
