Academy for Health Careers Reviews

39 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Academy for Health Careers
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.
I liked that some of the teachers of Academy for Health Careers always encouraged our learning and curiosity. They tried their best to keep us focused on learning and doing what was necessary in order to succeed. Many of the teachers also gave us projects that encouraged us to working in teams. By doing this, they increased our leadership skills, creating a bond that promotes strength and reliability in each of us. This helped me in the long run.
