Phoenix Union Bioscience High School Reviews

I'm a senior this year and will forever be grateful to Bioscience for the experience it's offered me. Since my freshman year, I've grown as a learner, a community member, and a person. I am more resilient, confident, and collaborative than I ever expected to be. Bioscience offers an environment to explore your passions and dreams and decide whether they're right for you. Through the biomedical class offered I discovered an affinity for anatomy and medicine as a whole, which has shaped the path I'm now choosing as I pick my university and major.

Bioscience gave me the room to grow, while still offering inspiring mentor ship and guidance through my four year journey. I've definitely been challenged in a way I never expected from a public high school and I've pushed myself past what I thought I was capable of. I will always look fondly over my time at this school and am looking forward to completing the experience this coming May.

Bioscience was indeed a life changing experience. Rather than abiding by your average high school curriculum, Bioscience was able to integrate life skills with academic ones. Sports should definitely start being available, since it will certainly satisfy more students both physically and mentally. Overall though, Bioscience definitely made the past four years worth while. I learned how to not only be a better student, but also a better human being.
I love the community that we build at Bioscience. Everyone is connected together and we all help each other out. We become part of a big family that helps each other out. The community around the area is terrific as well. Local businesses and stores know about us and we get to explore and build real-world connections with the community around Bioscience. Overall Bioscience is a different High School experience that you cant get anywhere else. Bioscience has its own diverse culture that you have to experience first hand to understand what goes on at Bioscience.
