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.

We hope you have planned to join us for our Welcome Back Family Dinner this Thursday, September 5 at 5:30 pm. If you plan to attend and have not already RSVP'd, please do so at the link below.

Family Dinner RSVP

As we begin a new year together, please remember that daily attendance is extremely important and directly related to student success. School attendance is a primary responsibility of every student and family and demonstrates family commitment to HSHMC and its program for student success. Therefore, students are expected to maintain 100% attendance. If a student misses school, the student is expected to make up that time by attending an extended day program, such as Saturday school.

If your child is going to be absent, please call the school at 619-528-9070. We ask that you also review our attendance policy located in the student handbook posted on our website.

Although attending Saturday School is not an ideal way to compensate for actually attending school regularly, if absences do occur, a student may clear one school absence for each Saturday School attended. Our first Saturday School scheduled is this Saturday, September 7, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Students must stay the entire time to get credit for their absence.

In preparation for our health internship program this year, as a convenience, Sharp HealthCare will be on campus next Tuesday, September 10 to administer TB tests and flu shots required for students enrolled in a hospital internship. These requirements must be met before a student can attend their internship which begins the week of September 16. Permission forms are being sent home with your child and must be returned by Friday. A copy of the permission forms can also be downloaded from our website. No student will be given the required shots without parent permission.

If you have not already done so, we need all students to return the free or reduced lunch form or fill out the on-line application located on our website. A new application must be filled out by families each school year.
