South Texas High School for Health Professions Reviews
In my four years of attending South Texas High School for Health Professions, or for short, Med High, I have experienced tremendous advantages in my education, social skills, leadership abilities, college readiness, and determination. The teachers have many years of experience, and they strive for student achievement. Students grow in these four years with exposure to wide student diversity. Getting to know other people of different religions, races, and ethnic backgrounds builds social personality within each student. Med High also caters multiple college classes that students can take to prepare for future college life. These college classes transfer over to select colleges and universities that students wish to be accepted to. One characteristic that makes Med High stand out more than every high school in America is the Health Science education.
South Texas High School for Health Professions does an absolutely great job when it comes to academics and driving the students to "aim higher" in every aspect. They are growing and improving and offering programs focused to obtain a certificate as a senior, whether it be a Registered Dental Assistant, Certified EMT, Veterinary Assistant and much more. The only personal improvement the school can definitely attain, is to offer more activities and approach them in an equally scholastic, beneficial, and fun aspect; and involve parents more, especially when it comes to information about college.
I liked the various opportunities Med-High had to offer, however they do over exaggerate their programs and resources. The classes are very rigorous and require a lot of time and effort, even though the end result doesn't feel rewarding. They expect a lot from their students at such a young and immature age, especially during junior year. You can have an amazing experience if you get the right teachers, but otherwise it was okay. Better than a public high school, but not as great as they may make it seem.
