School of Health Professions Reviews

I am currently a Junior at the School of Health Professions. The school overall is a great way to understand what you do want to be and what you dont. For me, my freshman year, I instantly knew healthcare wasn’t for me. This made me become very uncurious about learning, which in hand, made my grades reflect that. As a Junior now, I absolutely ADORE my “cluster class”, which is Dental Assistanting 1. I love learning about the mouth and all of the cool instruments! With that being said, I might consider being a dentist one day! I’m so glad I didn’t change schools my freshman year because I would’ve never found my passion for dentistry!

The School of Health Professions at Townview Magnet is a great school for students who are confident in their desire to pursue medicine. From the first year there, students are prepared in the basic knowledge of the medical field such as basic medical terminology, as well as given the knowledge of the wide span of careers in the medical field. As a student progresses in their career at Health, they become more technically and professionally equipped to tackle their desired careers through skills practices and internships at reputable hospitals in the Dallas metroplex.
I’m a current Junior and I love the opportunities I receive at this school. We learn so many skills such as the language of healthcare, performing vital signs and cpr and many more. We get to experience healthcare in internships when we choose our cluster for Junior year. We also learn how to work with each other because it’s all about teamwork when we speak about a healthcare setting.
