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.

In addition, students will work with health care 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.

Health Sciences Inc. and school social worker Dominique Smith were honored in Orlando, Florida at the National School Safety Advocacy Council for our collective work on restorative practices. This organization, composed of police officers, public safety officials, and district school safety administrators, presented the award for the innovative efforts of the school communities in reducing disruptive behavior that detracts from school learning. The principles of restorative practices are well known to our school, and reflect the pillars we strive for each day. Congratulations to Mr. Smith and the entire RP team, who work tirelessly to make our schools a great place to work, teach, and learn!
