HSHMC Mission Statement
We created HSHMC as a place where young people could learn about health and healthcare, while receiving a world-class education in a safe and supportive environment. HSHMC is a home away from home, an open door, and a place of rigor and academia – where students earn a diploma that matters. We do what it takes, we do no harm, we set no limits on our potential to learn and grow. Here, we are all family – and we LOVE what we do!
Principle 1: Health & Healthcare
We learn skills and apply our knowledge through the lens of healthcare and health careers.
We practice and promote the health of our community and its citizens.
We assume roles, responsibilities, and advances in promoting health.
Principle 2: A Home Away from Home
Every student has access to personalized learning, and is supported by qualified and caring educators, practitioners, and mentors.
This is a place where independence, responsibility, and accountability are fostered and respected.
At HSHMC, every student belongs, has a role, contributes, feels safe, and is a respected member of our family. As an academic community, we support and care for each other through conscientious decision-making.
Principle 3: A Diploma That Matters
Every student is challenged by a rigorous, well-balanced, standards-based curriculum.
Students are actively engaged in learning at school and within the broader community.
Each student is prepared for success in college or further study, as well as for employment in a fulfilling career.
Our graduates assume responsible and caring roles in their families and communities. They will be known as people who take actions that positively impact their home, community, and the world-at-large.
Graduates will be sought by colleges, employers and community groups who recognize their knowledge, skills, and compassion.
HSHMC is a place where learning goes beyond the walls of a classroom.
Principle 4: Respect for Oneself, Other People, and the Environment
Every individual is recognized and accepted for their uniqueness and beliefs.
Here, there is value in every voice, and everyone communicates honestly and respectfully.
We seek to understand, respect, and celebrate all the diversity around us.
We accept active roles as important members of our pluralistic community.
Each student and employee is responsible for their words and actions.
We conduct ourselves and treat others with dignity and respect.
We care for the environments in which we live, learn, recreate, and work.
