South Texas Academy for Medical Professions Reviews

143 reviews
All Categories
Medical Academy is a school for those who like to challenge themselves. Throughout the 4 years I've been there, it definitely taught me to academically challenge myself for achievement. Courses are not too difficult, but can be overwhelming if you pile up and procrastinate on your work. There aren't too many clubs and most are not really active (except for FTK and HOSA). HOSA is a big deal at this school and a very good experience, so definitely sign up! The ambiance of the students is nice overall. Once this school starts blowing up with more incoming freshmen, the halls seem a bit hectic. I spent 3 years in the new campus in Olmito and the 2017-2018 has been the most packed of them all. All the staff is friendly and will help you right away. Any student wanting to pursue a medical career should definitely consider attending Medical Academy.

Additionally, this school is well-equipped with the latest software and equipment from the health care field. If you’re interested in pursuing the Medical Professions and being at a higher level education, then Medical Academy is the right high school for you.
I think this high school is the best! After being a student here, I learned how to become more independent and how to take matters into my own hands. My experience here has undeniably made my first year in college the best it could possibly be. I have had an amazing first semester and have struggled very little with the education that South Texas Academy for Medical Professions has afforded me. The rigorous curriculum has made college so far seem like a breeze.
