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 well as a plan for their futures.

HSHMC Alumni,

We are interested in learning about the experiences and achievements of our graduates. In particular, we want to learn more about the paths our graduates take after their years at HSHMC.

We invite our graduates to participate in a 10 minute survey to help us reconnect, update contact information, and learn about experiences after HSHMC.

Responses are completely confidential. This means that we will not identify names with answers in any report. We may quote the information provided, but it will not be attributed by name.

We hope to reach as many graduates as possible. Therefore, please share this message and link to the survey to other graduates you may have contact with.

Take the survey

Please email if you have questions regarding this effort.

We are holding a Poetry Slam in the lecture hall during lunch tomorrow from 12:35-1:35 pm. Please consider joining us to hear some amazing spoken words from our students.

This Wednesday, June 6, is high school graduation rehearsal. All senior graduates should meet at HSHMC promptly at 8:45 am. Seniors will enjoy a student recognition luncheon at HSHMC immediately following rehearsal. Yearbooks, and cap and gowns will be handed out during the luncheon.

Dear HSHMC Families,

We wanted to share some positive news with you. County Health has shared that they are making significant progress clearing the building for us. They hope to run final tests this weekend. In other words, we do expect to be back in school as early as Tuesday. If they do clear the building this weekend, we will need Monday to straighten up and prepare for our reopening. Therefore, as of now, we will remain closed on Monday June 4 and will confirm with you as soon as possible about our plans to reopen on June 5th.

Although we are closed on Monday, the following will still continue:

  • The Cuyamaca College Communications Class will be held at our ISP location beginning at 8:30 am. The address is 4283 El Cajon Blvd. Suite 230.
  • ISP students will be in session at the ISP location from 12:30 – 4:00 pm
  • Students going to 6th Grade Camp will meet at HSHMC at 7:45 am out front at the brown tables to depart by bus.
  • Seniors going on the Senior Camping Trip will meet at HSHMC at 9:00 am out front at the brown tables to depart to camp.
  • We will hold Saturday School at HSHMC Saturday, June 2 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, on the first floor only.

Thank you for your understanding, support and flexibility during this most unusual time. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
