Howard Health & Life Sciences High School, otherwise known as Cumberland Polytechnic High School, is a school centered around the advancement of learning and a feel for the college experience. Though most students receive that feel, the school still needs to work on scheduling as well as distinguishing and assigning classes to achieve maximum success.
I love Howard Health! It's a very challenging early college school to get in to but makes you become a better person. Everyone is treated like family no matter where you came from. Since the school is on a community college campus, we can take college course classes while still in high school and graduate with a diploma and associates degree.
