From South Texas ISD Health Professions

South Texas ISD Health Professions serves high school students who live along the southernmost tip of Texas, the region known as the Rio Grande Valley. Because it is part of a public school district, there is no cost for students to attend, and bus transportation is also free of charge. Best of all, Health Professions maintains an open enrollment policy, meaning any student with the desire to learn and work hard can attend so long as he or she resides within the tri-county area.

Health Professions is a medically-themed high school and is dedicated to creating future healthcare and medical professionals.
