Initially, I didn't want to attend that school. I'm glad I did though because if I attended anywhere else, I wouldn't have the support from my counselors and motivation to attend college. They have amazing counselors that help with scholarships and everything we need to know about college. Something I would change would be; the food, the fun activities,and field trips, and the lack of sports. This school is a challenging school so often students tend to stress out a lot. We work a lot harder than many of the schools in the district but yet we watch other high schools have fun activities. We should be awarded for our hard work.

My four years in HCA has allowed me to encompass PASSION. PASSION is an acronym that we live by in HCA: Professional, Academic, Strong, Service-oriented, Integrity, Optimistic, and Nurturing. I have applied PASSION in my life by taking advantage of the vast opportunities at HCA. HCA has offered plenty of opportunities whether it is the classes, teachers, extracurricular activities, or community service. Some of these classes include Medical Terminology, Intro to Health Careers, Emergency Medical Services, and PLTW courses. These classes are strongly correlated with the healthcare field. In addition to these courses, I have been exposed to medical fields through job shadowing experiences and guest speakers.
The school is a very small school. Around only 500 students that attend the school.The Teachers are very involved with the students, and care very much about their students. Academics are very prominent at this school, and the work load is kind of hard if you don't try your hardest to do well. It is very easy to fall behind at this school if you don't stay on top of your tasks. At this school you also have to take Dual-Enrollment at San Joaquin Delta College all Four Years. Overall it is a pretty amazing school and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a challenge.
