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!

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.
