I am now a senior at Health Sciences charter school. My school overall is a very good school. This school has so many opportunity's more than any other school. This school, unlike other schools actually help you succeed throughout your whole 4 years step by step. The teachers really care about us and help to push us to achieve our goals. I grew a bond with all the teachers because of how welcoming they are.The teachers and administration treat us like one of their own. Even though it is not much diversity, the students and teachers get along with each other so good. At HSCS we are like one big family.

As of now, school has been going pretty well and some changes I would like to see are the lunch options, more AP classes, and more college prep classes.
I have been attending HSCS for 3 years now (CLASS OF 2K18!!!!!!!!). I was a transfer from a Buffalo Public High School and I can say that compared to BPS, the Health is more challenging academically and all of the teachers are super helpful and want to see you succeed and they are all really kind and caring, some are annoying but they're just doing their job at the end of the day. The only thing I will say to watch out for if you enroll your child is the students are snobby sometimes and mouthy but honestly the likelihood of things going beyond words would be 39% and if they do the teachers and other staff as nosy as hell and will find out and intervene before anything happens. SO, in conclusion Health Sciences Charter School is a wonderful choice and I love it and I am overjoyed and honored that I am graduating next June so if you want your child to feel like me right now....check HSCS out.
