High School for Medical Professions Reviews

I liked the fact that all of the teachers I've had throughout my 4 years of being at this school never gave up on us, even when things got difficult. In ninth grade, I had my heart set on becoming a nurse, so I thought coming to this school would expose me to certain programs. Unfortunately, there were no programs except a Health Careers class, which was somewhat informative, but not the program that I expected to be taking. I did this class my ninth grade year. The school lacks the programs that they said they would provide. The teachers at the school are amazing. Some of the kids aren't easy to handle at the school, but majority of the teachers are able to handle them. The teachers care, even if it seems like they don't.

High school for medical professions does not actually offer medical based prep with exception of attending labs with (living environment, chemistry, biology, anatomy, and environmental science) and once you reach senior year, to have a shorter schedule you need to have a job. The school lacks events, once in a while they do offer trips or movie days. This school does collect phones, there's a bucket system, upon entry you slide your phone into the slot of your grade level(9,10,11,12 four slots) and let the dean's do the rest, to retrieve your phone you go back to your first period teacher. This is a uniform school (khaki or navy pants, navy sweats, scrubs in 11th and 12th grade, white collar shirt with logo, regular white t-shirt with logo or navy blue shirt with logo). Overall this school is okay.
The High School for Medical Professions (HSMP), hence the name, places an emphasis on medical professions. They try their best to incorporate aspects of a healthcare career into the school's everyday routine, such as short times to move between classes, wearing scrubs throughout the day, encouragement to volunteer in healthcare environments and honors health classes. However, due to some changes, HSMP was not the greatest with college admissions advice and I do hope they improve. Regardless, I enjoyed the time and experiences I had at HSMP and I am rather proud to be an alumni there.
