The Donald Quarrie High School or “DQ’ as it is affectionately called is situated six (6) miles from downtown Kingston, east of the Harbour View Round-about on the St. Thomas main road. Construction started in 1975 and continued through 1976. The school was originally named Harbour View Secondary, but was renamed as a lifelong monument to honour Mr. Donald Quarrie after his brilliant performances in the 1974 Olympics – a fitting tribute to one of the sons of Harbour View and indeed, Jamaica.
The school continues to graduate students who are well-rounded and contribute to national development as well as foster social and scholastic experiences to the extended school family.
The school boasts a motivated team that caters to the continued development of the institution and it is proud of having one of the most modern and state of the art computer labs and library support facilities that can be found anywhere in Jamaica courtesy of Jamaica Private Power. (JPP)
