I have attended this school every since 9th grade and it has been a blast! Freshman was a new beginning for me because I was switching schools in of attending Bethune Bowman, i attended the High School for Health Professions for a better start because Bethune Bowman was not offering what i need to have to become a Physcologist.

My high school is very tight-knit and nurturing, which I truly believe has made my high school experience phenomenal. I love the fact that the school isn’t that big so it’s more hands on learning, it has also pushed me to become more engaged in my studies as well as other activities that are offered at school. The teaches are very understanding and they try their best to maintain an open door policy for students to talk to them, which I personally have found very helpful. The school staff, in its entirety, wishes the best for all of the students so when it comes to advising us on our future endeavors, the faculty is sure to make sure that we are aware of all of our options, and that we take our time to consider each option. The only thing I would change about my school is the building, since it is small which caused us to sacrifice a library, a gym, etc. These certain things could become restrictions in our learning, however our school does their best to provide everything we need.
HSHP was a school where it's easy to pass classes and still learn. A lot of the teachers are very dedicated to what they do, which makes this school special because a student-teacher bond can be formed, which makes learning better. Because the school offers dual-credit courses and other programs, it helps cover a lot of what you need in college. The extra-circular activities are small, but really good. Over the course of four years, I haven't heard about anyone being bullied or mistreated, so I would say safety is pretty average or above average.
The only issue I had was with some faculty (getting stuff done on time) and the lack of zeal to learn from the students.
