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 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 education...as well as a plan for their futures.

Our partner, Sharp HealthCare is offering FREE health screenings to our HSHMC parents on Thursday, April 16 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm - No appointment is necessary!

In addition, our Parent Academy on COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE will be held in the lecture hall at 6:00 pm.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for a one or both of these wonderful opportunities. Click here to RSVP for the Parent Academy.


We are pleased to announce that two staff members at HSHMC, Rebecca Brooks and Yazmin Pineda, have earned their doctoral degrees!

She will be conferred her PhD In Special Education in May through a joint doctoral program between SDSU and Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Pineda's dissertation was on the practices of 14 highly successful principals across the nation who developed and implemented inclusive practices at their schools. She will be conferred her EdD in Educational Leadership through SDSU in May. Please join us in congratulating these two phenomenal educators and scholars!


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!
