Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC) is a school where students earn diplomas that matter! In partnership with Sharp Healthcare, SDSU professors, and San Diego Community College, HSHMC staff will ensure that each student has positive and meaningful experiences throughout high school while achieving academic and social success in a vocational program setting. HSHMC students will earn high school diplomas, complete college entrance requirements, and have opportunities to earn community college credits, degrees, or vocational certificates. In addition, students will work with healthcare professionals through job shadowing and internships to explore real-world applications of their school-based knowledge and skills as well as future career choices. Students will graduate with pride in their diplomas that represent a well-rounded, meaningful, and useful education...as well as a plan for their futures.

Thank you for continuing to encourage your child to participate in our online learning. Our students are doing an amazing job logging on with us each week. Let's keep the momentum going and finish the school year strong with everyone participating.

Our online summer school plans were mailed to you last week. The information and the link to the registration form can also be found here:

HSHMC Summer 2020 Information

We look forward to all our HSHMC students joining in with us this summer. We are offering several enrichment courses, including Spanish and Integrated Art, which are both required courses needed to graduate from HSHMC. Since we do not always offer these two courses during the regular school year, summer school is a great time to help students meet these requirements. In addition, we are excited to offer cooking and PE classes, along with many other courses. Please be sure your child signs up this week!

The pre-recorded graduation ceremony to honor our seniors will be released for viewing on Monday, June 8 at 5:00 pm. And, the pre-recorded promotion celebration for our 8th graders will be released on Tuesday, June 9 at 5:00 pm. We hope your family and loved ones will enjoy sharing in this special time with all of us.

If you have not already done so, please use our online registration to complete the paperwork required to register your child for the 2020-2021 school year. This will confirm your enrollment for next year and verify that we have current contact information. If you need assistance, please call 619-528-9070 and Ms. Rivas will help you with complete the online registration. If you know other families who have children interested in joining our HSHMC family, we are still accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year. Applications are available on our website.

Remember, I am available online via Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday at 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm. To reach me there, simply register from our website under Chief's Office Hours and I will send you the link to join in.

Have a great week! Thank you.

Seniors will be picking up their caps and gowns Tuesday and Wednesday between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.
