Academy for Health Careers Reviews

Academy for Health Careers, a high school in Brooklyn, is not bad of a school as it may seem. The school does offer health classes that are very helpful and maybe even interesting. Some of the teachers are great but others just can't teach at all and require some personal learning like I've done. Getting high grades really isn't that if you just put some effort into it and do your best. Getting distracted by your friends or your own lack of focus is going to get you nowhere. This school, again, isn't so bad but maybe shouldn't be one of anyone's first few choices for high school. Wouldn't suggest it, sorry.

Academy for Health Careers is a really nice school. They have specific academic classes set up that not every typical Public High School has, which is really good for the students. Some of them wish there were AP classes though.
Although a school can't control the students and their actions, a lot of the students deem themselves superior to others. There are no visible signs of bullying, but there are moments where there are feelings of being unwanted.
The staff is extremely helpful in the classes and studies, and are always available to help any students in need.
Extracurricular activities are an option but having requested specific activities to be considered and begun, they still have not. But there are most certainly activities to be done for everyone.
Academy for Health Careers is a moderately decent high school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York. Their lack of health classes is made up by the familial environment provided by the students and teachers. They're slowly but surely improving by providing SAT tutoring, more clubs, and unique health classes such as introduction to medical technology and phlebotomy.
