Overall, HPHS is a very diverse school that offers many opportunities for students to excel in their studies. I’ve had many positive and memorable experiences with the students, as well as the staff members, who I have developed close relationships with. They’re very approachable, caring and are always willing to help if you are struggling. One of the many things that make this school unique is the science research and medical assisting program. As part of the medical assisting program, I’ve been able to gain internships at various medical institutions throughout the city during my two years. One thing that I would like to see changed is more involvement in extracurricular activities, such as clubs and sports. In addition, more AP classes should be offered and the school should be made a little cleaner.

This school really had a great and memorable student enviornment! The teachers here are mediocore, aren't that bad aren't that great neither. The school needs a makeover, it's really old and dirty. Some of the faculty members have to get their attitude checked. Academic wise the classes aren't challenging and teachers need to update their teaching methods and be more involved with students.
Entering High school for Health Professions freshmen year, I have had an amazing experience. I'd definitely like to extend the medical assisting program and make it valuable for everyone. Our high school was rated the best high school in the city of 2016 and 2018. Students collaborate aspects of culture with other students among different backgrounds. That's what I love about this school, everyone is here to learn and focus on achieving their dream, rather than worrying about materialistic things. This school is super diverse and I recommend your child to attend this high school.
