For Medical and Health Careers
 
Medical & Health Careers House


The School for Medical and Health Careers is dedicated to providing students with a variety of off-site learning opportunities that will help students connect with their academic and real-life learning experiences. Our academic and elective classes enrich our theme of healthy living, disease prevention, and investigating careers that support healthy lifestyles. Students enjoy inquiry-based learning in all subject areas, which promotes critical thinking, problem solving, and scientific process skills. It is the goal of the entire learning community to motivate students to direct their academic futures, develop career interests, increase academic achievement, and become successful members of society.
