I received my Dental Assisting license from this high school, learning a skill that allowed me to ease the cost of college. This school has great instructors and a variety of medical professions that students can choose from! I'd recommend this school to anyone looking to get into the medical field.

The School of Health Professions is a good school if you want to be in the medical field. It gives a great exposure to the medical field by incorporating classes such as Anatomy and Physiology , Health Science Clinical, Principles of Health Science, Medical Terminology , Pathophysiology ,exc. Students take many classes that will prepare them and keep them ahead in college and medical school. Although the school is wonderful , there is little diversity. For a school that is mostly minority, the majority are latino ,mexican , or hispanic. There is a small percentage of Asian and Caucasion students.
From the teachers to the office ladies, there is such a respectful environment. They help struggling students and commend those who go above and beyond! Great School!
