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.

This Friday our high school students have an opportunity to protest the violence in schools and the lack of change that has occurred to stop it by participating in the April 20 National Walkout. Participation is a choice and regular classes will be in session for students who choose not to participate. Those who want to participate must pick up a one-day attendance contract from Mr. Kennedy and have it signed by a parent/guardian before Friday. Students participating will meet at HSHMC at 8:00 am and walk 3 miles to Balboa Park. We will not be walking back from Balboa Park as a group to HSHMC and therefore students must find their own transportation home. Students with scheduled college classes or internships on Friday must attend those classes instead of participating in the march. If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Thank you and have a great week!
