The last person to posts are people who can't handle the rigor of HCHS and refuse to accept they are not a good fit for this school. If you work hard, HCHS will open massive doors.

Just because we have high test scores does not make this a good school. A good school has a good atmosphere and teaching philosophy, both of which are lacking here.

On days of big tests, my friends ...  Read more

A GREAT SCHOOL, IF YOUR CHILD IS "LUCKY" ENOUGH TO GET CHOSEN BY "LOTTERY" IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO ATTEND THIS OUTSTANDING SCHOOL, THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE "RANDOMLY" CHOSEN IN THE LOTTERY IS TO FIRST GET A JOB AT NORTHSIDE I.S.D.

If my daughter did not attent Health Careers High School I would probably be spending over 10K annually for private school. When my tax bill comes each year I actually believe that I'm getting my money's worth!

This is a private school environment in a public school district. I am thrilled with the student/teacher ratio and the emphasis on academics. The students here have chosen to be here and it shows. The extracurricular offerings are great, too.
