THE ACADEMY OF HEALTH AND MEDICINE

Mission Statement:

To provide our students and their families with the highest quality education, while creating a standard of excellence and providing a culture that supports students in developing their skills and talents.

Academy of Health and Medicine:

The Academy of Health and Medicine (H&M) is an academy designed for students who want to pursue a career in the health field. The program incorporates academics as well as practical training and health career exposure. Students will be offered classes and participate in specific field studies in order to develop their interests in the health and medical fields.

The program operates on the Arroyo High School campus. Academy of Health and Medicine Curriculum Students enrolled in the program fulfill all the requirements of a high school diploma as well as college prep curriculum. English, math, social studies and lab components have been modified to provide a relevant application to the medical and health care professions. The core curriculum is rigorous and challenging. Students learn all the components of health and how they relate to various health and medical occupations, as well as learn the basic principles and terminology of the fields and build their technical skills through work-related projects. Built into the curriculum are career and college motivation components: visits to medical/health care sites and colleges, and presentations by professionals within the community. Summer internships and job shadows for many of our students are a goal of the program, as well as assistance in job placement after graduation and/or movement into a higher education. 

Goals of the Academy:

  • To provide students with a program relevant to today’s medical and health needs and prepare students for post-secondary education. 
  • To provide vocational experiences in hospitals and health care fields to meet employment needs of the local community.
  • To provide alternatives to traditional curriculum for students who might be having difficulties choosing a career path.
  • To encourage a partnership between the private sector and the educational community.
  • To strengthen the self-confidence of the students and increase their leadership skills.

NGSS- NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS INFO
California's New Science Standards:

Students will be learning science and engineering skills through hands-on experiences. Each year, science will builds on what they learned in previous grades. California’s Next Generation Science Standards develop students’ skills overtime, preparing them to succeed in college, in a career and in life.

Students Will Learn to Think Like Scientists and Engineers

Students will learn significant science concepts while applying mathematics, using engineering models and communicating technical information. They will approach problems the way scientists and engineers do, asking questions and making discoveries. Instead of seeking one correct answer, they will persevere in their investigation and demonstrate understanding by collecting data, developing models and using scientific and engineering processes.
