Health and Science School was a great experience academically! Their classes that are geared towards health and engineering careers are challenging and very interesting, with curriculum that is geared towards preparing students for careers. This school doesn't have many options as far as sports or arts, because of this focus on science and its status as an option school.

Unlike most schools, health and science school is a smaller school where you can actually know everyone in your grade and develop bonds with everyone. It helps teach social skills as you interact with your classmates and teachers. The school also specializes in a healthy path and engineering path. This has been beneficial to me as I have been able to specialize in my high school path for the highest chance of getting into the school I want to study engineering. All the teachers here are very involved in your learning and will often help you outside of class and take time to ensure you learn the content. A downside to having a small school though is the lack of electives. During my first year, I only had 1 class in my schedule that I had a choice in. Besides that, there were few ap opportunities for myself. The school though does make up for that by working with colleges around the area to bring dual credit classes that enrich the curriculum.
My experience at Health and Science School was average. I met some amazing, committed teachers that applied themselves to teaching and worked hard to encourage their students to think about their future academic career. Unfortunately, due to the school's lottery program and corrupt grandfather programs, the students were either very committed to academics and took advantage of the plethora of resources available to them, but the other half of the students were unmotivated and turned the halls and classrooms into chaotic, unwelcoming spaces for their peers.
