Help Preserve Iraq's Heritage

The spectacle of human suffering demands our attention. There is suffering aplenty in Iraq these days. The Christian community of Iraq has been brutally evicted from their homes; the Yezidi community is being slaughtered and enslaved. The need for relief supplies in the form of food, drinking water, shelter, and medicine is urgent.


We are an IB World school!

Welcome to Mar Qardakh School

About Our School

Located in the heart of the Middle East, Mar Qardakh School strives to perpetuate a great and ancient heritage. Iraq is often thought of as the Cradle of Civilization, the land where some of the first and greatest ancient civilizations and cultures - Babylon, Mesopotamia and Assyria - began. The beginning of multiple languages, the beginning of writing and the beginning of education have often been associated with this region. Today, Mar Qardakh School is building upon this ancient heritage and carrying it forward by providing a comprehensive, rigorous education, centered on the holistic development of the entire person, in order to invest in the well-being of each individual and of the community as a whole.
